Abstract

In the light of the most recent theoretical debate on hypertextuality (Bolter, Grusin, Landow), this paper focuses on some of the central problems brought about by the introduction of the hypertextual form in fiction. It mainly analyzes Shelley Jackson's Patchwork Girl, or a Modern Monster, a rewriting of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein which largely exemplifies the cultural and epistemological issues inherently related to a new notion of narration introducing an extensive use of fragmentation and openendedness.
