Pound, In a Station of the Metro resents a challenge similar to what we encounter with digital lit: How do we make sense of this? Procedurally, that is. How are we to read this? First idea: take into account its materiality. Works like these demand a high level of reader interaction. Pressman, 52.

Station of the metro Presents a challenge similar to what we encounter with digital lit: how do we make sense of this? Procedurally, that is. How are we to read this? While taking into account its materiality. Because
Works like these demand a high level of reader interaction. P 52.
Imagism isn't about self-expression. It's about presenting the thing. We know that because that was pounds manifesto of the time. http://www.english.illinois.edu/maps/poets/m_r/pound/metro.htm
The work was published in various layouts
"The apparition of these faces in the crowd:
Petals, on a wet, black bough."
=== Method ===
Describe - words, kinds of words, not a sentence, punctuation. Lines and layout. Repetition of words? Repetition of types of words. Rhythm, assonance. Structurally - syntactically - it's a rhetorical figure.
Analyze - once I bring in a figure, we're in analysis. Not ekphrasis, but comparison and NOT a metaphor. The structure argues against that.
antapodosis - several points of comparison
atachresis - implied metaphor, extravagant
Metonymy - substituting of cause - effect. But in this case, the entire process is presented.
So
Metalepsis - a present effect attributed to a remote cause.
V http://rhetoric.byu.edu/figures/m/metalepsis.htm
Add this
Bring in the ideas of Vorticism and imagism that pound was working with at the time. Or bring in, as I'm doing, ideas of materiality from Pressman and Hayles.
Interpret - the connection: that reading imagist poetry, which in this case relies on and makes us of materiality and reliance of meaning on the thing tells us a lot about reading contemporary digital lit.

Additions:
Our focus is on where and how digital literature and poetics fits in lit crit: what does each bring to the other? We're not studying digital literature itself for its own sake, for the interpretation of the work itself, but for the processes, the challenges, the new positions, the new and old understandings it brings to the study of lit crit.

Additions:
Both of which make it disturbingly easy to read Print Classics. This easy practice is one of the first aspects that you'll find made difficult in digital literature.
Most digital works intentionally challenge reading, writing print, the page, language, literariness, poetics ... Adapt yourself to this by immersion. Learn to read.
== how to study ==
Google is your friend (But watch your back). Watch for technical definitions of terms: those are the ones you want.
Many of the digital works are available online, so google them and read them.
