The Edinburgh Companion to Twentieth-Century Literatures in English

Joseph Tabb

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter discusses the impact the Web has had on fiction. It shows that the lack of competing ideologies has caused a lot of poets and novelists to study material constructions, which include the lettering and the arrangement of the words on a page. The chapter presents the new narrative as being able to imagine networks and even become a network itself.

Keywords:   Web, network, fiction, material constructions, new narrative
