Printed books are portrayed as closer to nature, because one can read them out of doors or in places where it is hard to operate computers. The supporters of print will associate the computer with high technology, which is by definition distanced from nature or the human. They will challenge the hypertextual definition of interactivity: letting the reader choose links only gives the illusion of control, which is really withheld from the reader. If authors prescribe links, they deny the reader the choice of making her own associations, so that a printed novel or essay actually gives the reader greater freedom to interact with the ideas presented.
The conventional word processing document only hints at the potential for associative and flexible writing that we have identified as hypertext. What, then, is the relationship between the digital technology and hypertext? We can think of hypertext as a genre or series of genres, including interactive fiction, applications for education and entertainment, Web sites (which themselves constitute many different genres), and so on. These genres already have structures and conventions and generate expectations among their authors and readers.
What did happen is that these visual technologies had to define themselves in a culture of printed materials, and in particular in a literary culture dominated by the printed novel. They had to assume the task of subverting the dominate model of prose, of breaking free of the constraints of verbal rhetoric. That situation has changed. If, during the heyday of print in the 18th and 19th centuries, writers controlled the visual by subsuming it into their prose and poetry, popular prose today seems constantly to be trying to become more visual and sensuous.
