    • Immediacy versus hypermediacy

  • Three aspects in thereadingprocess

    • Experienceofcoherence

    • Genre recognition


Semantisation

Semantisation

  • Search for meaning

  • Confirmative reading

  • The outcome of the reader’s choice is predictable

  • A rampart against the intrusion of the unfamiliar

  • ”the semantic orientation of reading” (Iser)

  • ”achievers” (Bartle)

    • Players who are primarily oriented towards a goal


Exploration

Exploration

  • Mode of gaining experience

  • The outcome of the reader’s choice is unpredictable

  • The hypertext takes chance as a principle

  • ”The pleasure is related to discovering something new” (Iser)

  • ”The explorers” (Bartle)


Self reflection

Self-reflection

  • “I connect my computer to the network, sipping my morning coffee. My hair is still wet from the shower when I check my email and find it there in between other messages: an email from Caroline. I read it quickly and then visit her web site. She’s waiting for me. She holds a shirt she’s just bought up to the webcam so I can see it, asking me afterwards by email whether I’d like her to send it to me. “Yes”, I answer, clicking and typing my responses into the web form and giving her my physical address. Caroline knows I like coffee and she knows I read her email in the morning. Caroline and I are friends.” (Walker 2003:65)

  • “Being a heterosexual woman, I fill in those blanks in Caroline’s character and in my own self-presentation so they will suit my expectations of a relationship between girls talking about boyfriends and work and emotions.” (ibid.:76)


Self reflection1

Self-reflection

  • Self-enjoyment in the enjoyment of someone else (Iser)

  • Sosialiser (Bartle)

  • Playing a role as someone else

  • In this self-enjoyment the reader becomes aware of his own codes, expectations and experiences


Absorption

Absorption

  • Embodies the most intensive absorption of the reader in hypertext

  • Pursuing vertigo

  • Pleasurable and enjoyable, or frightful and frustrating

  • ”the pleasure of the text” (Barthes, Iser)

  • ”the killers” (Bartle)

  • Hovers ”on the borders of illegibility” (Hayles)
