Hypertexts

I've been interested in hypertext since my first Choose Your Own Adventure book.  It took me until college to find out what it was called, but since then I've been writing and thinking about how linked and dynamic writing can make, shape, and show our thinking.

Most of my writing on hypertext is over on Textuality.org these days.  I've archived here several hypertexts that I created during college to serve as assignments and to showcase concepts I was considering.  I currently have four hypertexts that I wrote in response to 'paper' assignments during my four years at Swarthmore College.

Each is a download link for a zip file containing the hypertext as a self-contained website.  To read them, download the file, unzip it, and open "index.html" in each.

Beauty and the Hypertext

A multi-axial array hypertext examining several retellings of "Beauty and the Beast" with regards to several elements. Done for "Grendel's Workshop" at Swarthmore College in December 1998.

Motley's the Only Wear

An expandable abstract hypertext examining the Fool characters in Shakespeare's As You Like It and Twelfth Night. Done for a Shakespeare Seminar in March of 1999.

The Culture I Sprang From

In form, a proper treatment of the expandable abstract structure used for "Motley's the Only Wear". In content, a consideration of cognitive structures in Richard Wright's Black Boy. Done for "Intimacy and Distance: Wright, Hurston, Welty, and Faulkner"  in April 1999.

Hurling Words Into the Darkness

A conversational or multiframe multilinear hypertext setting quotes and criticism of Richard Wright, Eudora Welty, Zora Neale Hurston, and William Faulkner into a pastiche conversation about storytelling and authority.
