Text Menu

Firefly uses a series of anchors that trigger a single change in a line on the screen, thus changing the context of the other lines in the node. Each line functions as an non-distinguished anchor, flipping through six potential lines. Like Reach [28] and Charmin' Cleary [16], all content is anchoral.

As in Raymond Queneau's Cent Mille Milliards de Poèmes [108], Firefly presents many potential readings. Firefly has six stanzas, each carrying the plot forward. No matter which anchor is chosen, it works in concert with the other anchor texts to form a coherent narrative that explains that plot level.

Like _][ad][Dressed in a Skin C.ode [44] and Diagrams Series 5 [57], the anchors occupy the same layered space, creating a sense of multiple dimensions. As Larsen introduces this piece in Poems That Go: "The structure, subtly changing settings, and reader interaction all provide multi-dimensional spaces for meaning, subtext, and context. [33] "

Work included by permission This is not an anchor, but an icon showing the place of the action--a different paper, perhaps

Like many other sites, Firefly [34] uses a > to indicate further content.
