Eastgate To Release New Title by Judd Morrissey and Lori Talley

My Name is Captain, Captain. is the anticipated new work from Eastgate. Robert Coover says: “Using verbal and visual metaphors from the early days of flight in the hypermedia skies of these early days of electronic literature, My Name Is Captain, Captain. is already, even at the moment it is being published, a classic in its form. […] At times playful, at times somber, My Name Is Captain, Captain. is, at all points of the compass, a compelling and intriguing read.”

Loss Pequeno Glazier’s new book on E-Poetry Released

Digital Poetics: The Making of E-Poetries was released today by The University of Alabama Press. “Digital Poetics attempts to take on a task different than its peers. First, this is a book about Web-based electronic writing viewed through the lens of poetic practice.” Glazier argues that the increase in computer technology and accessibility has created a new and viable place for the writing and dissemination of poetry. He examines three principal forms of electronic textuality: hypertext, visual/kinetic text, and works in programmable media.
