AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This paper analyses the divergences between Derrida's notion of the archive and hypermedia theory as it emerges in the late twentieth century through the writings of George P. Landow. The online presence of Australian poet Derek Motion is examined in order to demonstrate the distinction between the physicalised archive and the virtual electronic space of hypertexts, and to explicate some of the issues of legitimacy that exist around electronic texts.'
