Abstract

If we compare the field of digital textuality to other areas of study in the humanities, its most striking feature is the precedence of theory over the object of study. Most of us read novels and see movies before we consult literary criticism and cinema studies, but it seems safe to assume that a vast majority of people read George Landow before they read any work of hypertext fiction. In this paper [the author investigates] one of the most important forms that this advance theorizing of digital textuality has taken, namely the use of narrative concepts to advertise present and future product.
