Abstract [en]

The article investigates the emergence of new writing and reading practices under the impact of digital media. Examining Cayley's poetic work riverIsland , the author focuses on digital procedures the poet calls "literal morphing." These transformations of letters constitute an important shift in poetic writing whose importance for literary analysis must be acknowledged. The author concludes that poetic works in programmable media lead to a rethinking of concepts of surface and depth in relation to writing.
