n Tydskrif vir Geesteswetenskappe - Van wandelaar tot kuborg en identiteit by Nijhoff, Van Wyk Louw en Evelyn Castelyn

Volume 45, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0041-4751


The subject (declared dead by the poststructuralists) is equally problematic in cyberspace.

On the basis of the analyses I propose a model for identity in poetry. Theories of poststructuralism and hypertext form the background of the article. In the foreground are the idea of the cyborg and Lyotard's view of the tegnologos and the three kinds of memory effect that it makes possible.
