whereas most crucial reports of born-digital literature have a good time it as a postmodern artwork shape with roots in modern applied sciences and social interactions, Digital Modernism presents an alternate family tree. Grounding her argument in literary background, media reports, and the perform of close-reading, Jessica Pressman pairs modernist works through Ezra Pound, James Joyce, and Bob Brown, with significant electronic works like William Poundstone's Project for the Tachistoscope {Bottomless Pit}, Young-hae Chang Heavy Industries's Dakota, and Judd Morrissey's The Jew's Daughter to illustrate how the modernist stream of the Twenties and Thirties laid the foundation for the thoughts of digital literature. hence, Digital Modernism makes the case for contemplating those electronic creations as "literature" and argues for the price of studying them rigorously, heavily, and inside of literary history.
