Shelley Jackson, Patchwork Girl. Part 1
Part 1 of Shelley Jackson’s traversal of her hypertext poem, Patchwork Girl, for the Pathfinders project, led by Dene Grigar and Stuart Moulthrop and sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities. 

An excellent example of a digital artefact/hyperlinked narrative. Jackson writes an intertextual story using  Shelley’s Frankenstein as the basis of Patchwork Girl. The girl in her story is a reference to Haraway’s cyborg as a hybrid creature, composed of organism and machine.
