About this book

This book explores one of the most exciting new developments in the literary field to emerge over recent decades: the growing body of work known as ‘electronic literature’, comprising literary works that take advantage of the capabilities of digital technologies in their enactment. Focussing on six leading authors within Latin(o) America whose works have proved pioneering in the development of these new literary forms, the book proposes a three-fold approach of aesthetics, technologics, and ethics, as a framework for analyzing digital literature.
