Glitches are errors where the digital bursts into our everyday lives as fragmented image, garbled text and aberrant event. In this book, Nathan Jones shows how writers work with the glitch as a literary effect. 'Glitch poetics' describes a new language of error in literary and media arts: a way to write the breakage, corruption and crisis of the present moment. Based on a range of close readings of contemporary literature by writers including Linda Stupart, Keston Sutherland, Ben Lerner, Caroline Bergvall, Erica Scourti, and the internet novelists, Jones lays the groundwork for writing that can productively engage in current thinking around AI, the Anthropocene, critical posthumanism and code.
