The Electronic Page
Allison Muri writes of the electronic text:

The theorizing of the electronic text revolves constantly around what is "real" and what is not--whether the representation is of "the order of sacrament," or of perversions of reality (orders of evil and malefice): a conversation posed as a uniquely post-postmodern crisis of truth, of body and mind and technology, of humanity itself, as though Socrates had never banned the poet from his Republic for creating representations three removes from the ideal, truth.

I found that I disagreed - but then I realised that I didn't disagree with Allison Muri, but with the theorizing.
