Annotation
Postmodern sublime : technology and American writing from Mailer to Cyberpunk by Joseph Tabbi( )

23 editions published between 1995 and 2018 in English and held by 1,545 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reading matters : narrative in the new media ecology by Joseph Tabbi( )

17 editions published between 1997 and 2018 in English and held by 1,533 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The twelve original essays, published here for the first time, are the work of distinguished scholar-critics on both sides of the Atlantic. They cover the range of contemporary literature, from the canonical novels of high modernism and postmodernism through subjects only recently put on the academic agenda, such as cyberpunk and hypertext fiction." "In an age that has proclaimed the death of the novel many times over, the editors and contributors argue persuasively for the continued vitality of literary narrative. By responding in ingenious ways to the capabilities of other media, they assert, the novel has enlarged and redefined its territory of representation and its range of techniques and play, while maintaining its viability in the new media assemblage."--Jacket
The rush for second place : essays and occasional writings by William Gaddis( Book )

14 editions published between 2002 and 2017 in English and Spanish and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Gaddis published only four novels during his lifetime, but with those works he earned himself a reputation as one of America's greatest novelists. Less well known is Gaddis's body of excellent critical writings. Here is a wide range of his original essays, some published for the first time. From "'Stop Player. Joke No. 4,'" Gaddis's first national publication and the basis for his projected history of the player piano, to the title essay about missed opportunities in America during the past fifty years, to "Old Foes with New Faces," an examination of the relationship between the writer and the problem of religion-this diverse collection displays the power of an autonomous literary intelligence in an age increasingly dominated by political and religious conservatism
Cognitive fictions by Joseph Tabbi( Book )

7 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bringing together cognitive science and literary analysis to map a new "media ecology," Cognitive fictions limns an evolutionary process in which literature must find its place in an artificial environment partly produced and thoroughly mediated by technological means. Joseph Tabbi provides a penetrating account of a developing consciousness emerging from the struggle between print and electronic systems of communications
The Bloomsbury handbook of electronic literature by Joseph Tabbi( Book )

21 editions published between 2017 and 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The digital age has had a profound impact on literary culture, with new technologies opening up opportunities for new forms of literary art from hyperfiction to multi-media poetry and narrative-driven games. Bringing together leading scholars and artists from across the world, The Bloomsbury Handbook of Electronic Literature is the first authoritative reference handbook to the field. Crossing disciplinary boundaries, this book explores the foundational theories of the field, contemporary artistic practices, debates and controversies surrounding such key concepts as canonicity, world systems, narrative and the digital humanities, and historical developments and new media contexts of contemporary electronic literature. Including guides to major publications in the field, The Bloomsbury Handbook of Electronic Literature is an essential resource for scholars of contemporary culture in the digital era."--
Nobody grew but the business : on the life and work of William Gaddis by Joseph Tabbi( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During his lifetime, William Gaddis (1922-1998) evaded biographical questions, never read from his work publicly, and didn't allow his photograph to appear on his book. Before his novel J R (1975) won Gaddis the National Book Award and some measure of renown, he had given up the bohemian world of 1950s Greenwich Village for a series of corporate jobs that both paid the bills and provided an inside view of the encroachment of market values into every corner of American culture. By illustrating the interconnectedness of Gaddis's life and work, Joseph Tabbi, among his foremost interpreters, demystifies the "difficult author" and shows a writer who was as attuned as any to the way Americans talk, and who sensitively chronicled the gradual commodification of artistic endeavor. Illuminating, heartbreaking, and masterful, Tabbi's book gives us the most subtly drawn portrait to date of one of the twentieth century's seminal novelists. -- from dust jacket
Agapē agape by William Gaddis( Book )

10 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Gaddis published four novels during his lifetime, immense and complex books that helped inaugurate a new movement in American letters. Now comes his final work of fiction, a subtle, concentrated culmination of his art and ideas. For more than fifty years Gaddis collected notes for a book about the mechanization of the arts, told by way of a social history of the player piano in America. In the years before his death in 1998, he distilled the whole mass into a fiction, a dramatic monologue by an elderly man with a terminal illness. Continuing Gaddis's career-long reflection on those aspects of corporate technological culture that are uniquely destructive of the arts, Agape Agape is a stunning achievement from one of the indisputable masters of postwar American fiction
Traversals : the use of preservation for early electronic writing by Stuart Moulthrop( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Libraries were originally created to preserve, archive and (later) disseminate literature. Centuries since the first libraries were created we are faced with the same issues in a digital form. Transversals is based on an NEH-funded research project to create a strong critical foundation for the study of Preservation, Archiving, and Dissemination (PAD) techniques that can help to inform scholars interested in a study of born digital objects. Focusing on four foundational works of digital literature (Stuart Moulthrop's Victory Garden, Judy Malloy's Uncle Roger: The Blue Notebook, Shelley Jackson's Patchwork Girl, and John McDaid's Uncle Buddy's Phantom Funhouse), Transversals investigates what knowledge of late-20th-century experimental writing is gained when we are able to examine early digital literary works in their intended context, through recorded encounters with the texts using original equipment"--Provided by publisher

Reading Matters : Narrative in the New Media Ecology( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The convergence of twentieth-century narrative and technology is one of the most important developments in current literary study. Roughly a decade after the founding of the Society for Literature and Science, and after the appearance of such influential books as Kathleen Woodward's Culture of Information and William Paulson's Noise of Culture, Joseph Tabbi and Michael Wutz have edited a landmark volume that seeks to summarize this still-emerging field. Through the essays and the wide-ranging overview provided by the editors' introduction, Reading Matters shows how these theoretical concerns can contribute to the practical study of narrative, and it helps to make the field far more accessible to students and other serious readers of fiction.The twelve original essays, published here for the first time, are the work of distinguished scholar-critics on both sides of the Atlantic. They cover the range of contemporary literature, from the canonical novels of high modernism and postmodernism through subjects only recently put on the academic agenda, such as cyberpunk and hypertext fiction.In an age that has proclaimed the death of the novel many times over, the editors and contributors argue persuasively for the continued vitality of literary narrative.

Cherchez le texte : the Proceedings for the ELO 2013 Conference by Electronic Literature Organization( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Electronic Literature Organization's (ELO) 2013 Conference & Media Art Exhibit, hosted 23-28 September in Paris, France by Philippe Bootz, holds great importance to the organization and its community because it represents ELO's keen interest in reaching a global audience and promoting diverse literatures. The stated goal of the conference, as indicated by its title, was to "look for the text", insisting on the transformation, malleability and instability of what is to be understood as the literary text in our current era. With well over 1600 scholars and artists in its community, ELO promotes a global approach to born digital literature, reflecting works produced on all continents save Antarctica. Additionally it has built affiliations with 13 different organizations across the globe, most recently from the Middle East. Its Board of Directors includes members from North and South America, Europe, and Australia. But it was in 2013 at the annual meeting held in Paris, France, that the ELO Board of Directors put its first two non-American Directors on the Board--Rui Torres (Portugal) and, not surprisingly, Philippe Bootz, the Chair of the ground-breaking Paris conference. ELO's success is inextricably linked to that event, and for that reason, we are pleased to present you with this historical and intellectual artifact, the Proceedings of ELO 2013
