Digital Literature. Current State of Research in Poland

Urszula Pawlicka

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review


The aim of the article is to present the current state of research on electronic
literature in Poland. By way of introduction, the author presents various phenomena
in literature at the turn of the 21st century, which originated from the intersection
of literature and new technologies, especially Internet. In subsequent parts,
the author presents major terminological and methodological problems: the
difference between “literature on Internet” and electronic literature, digital literature
and liberature, contexts for the description of hypertext and the definition of
cyberpoetry. The author attempts at sketching the research fields and pointing at
issues hitherto left behind by the theoreticians of electronic literature.
