Assignment 10B

The Future of Literature: by Randy Malamud

This blog that I read is an example of an “imagined future”. It focuses on the prediction of what Literature will become in the next few years. He claims that books will be gone in a decade. The genre of literature will become more advanced. Some genres that he suggested was “hypertext fiction, kinetic poetry, and chronomosaic novels”. He then goes on to explain how media resources will replace commonplace books, manuscripts, and bookstores. Something he said that I found interesting is that one day “the digital compression will allow us to read the worlds longest novel on the world’s smallest reading device”. I think his prediction are head on so far because this is so because it’s already happening. People are already reading books on there tablets and phones. I think soon enough there will be no restrictions, all access to every reading material on any device.
