About this work:


"It is a honor to have my [article] in Slope's hyperliterature issue. [In "Digital Poetry"], I tried to represent all types of digital poetry I have researched around the world. This is an essay I've been writing and revising since 2000, when I started my Ph.D. studies. It has been a challenge."


Favorite works of hyperliterature:


"As ... my studies reach Brazilian and other countries' poets and poetries, these are some favorite works I remember (the list is longer, but those who are not cited must forgive me for the mistake)."
