My dissertation demonstrates important intersections between traditional theories of narrative and innovation in digital-born narratives. In contrast to many critical approaches towards electronic literature, I interrogate the presumed “newness” of digital narratives and find many aspects of these works that confirm classical narratological theories of structure and authorship, while simultaneously demonstrating areas in which narrative theory must be revised and expanded to account for to the reading practices sponsored by digital-born works.
