Notes towards a supreme Internet literature : A creative writer's perspective
Starkey, David

Data: 1999
Resum: The article adapts the headings of Wallace Stevens's poem «Notes towards a supreme fiction» to describe what the author believes a «supreme Internet literature» will eventually look like. Drawing on his own experience as a writer who has published in both print and electronic formats, he surveys contemporary creative writing on the World Wide Web and comes to the following conclusions about Internet literature: 1) it must cut to the chase; 2) it must be postmodern; 3) it must be brief; 4) it must have «whistles and bells»; 5) it must be idealistic; 6) it must not live up to its ideal; 7) it must side-track; 8) it must be free; 9) it must be seductive; 10) it must not be read; 11) it must attract writers who are suspicious of web publication; 12) it must invite immediate feedback; and 13) it must resist closure.
