This site is devoted to the idea that literature can be analyzed in a hypertextual manner. A certain word or phrase may appear several times for a given book, and we believe there is meaning embedded in the links between the occurrences. This site allows you to treat a book like a brain, with synaptic connections from word to word, strengthening the meaning behind the text. As you explore the books, remember, every word is a link, click it to see where it leads.
The Hypertext Library was made by Noah Eisen
and Robert Rose
. Our initial goal was to improve the performance and aesthetics of this site
, which we both used while reading Ulysses.
