This thesis focuses on the participatory nature of electronic literature and how remediation of texts have created new forms of literature that do not seem like texts at all, but more like virtual reality. By delving into a specific example of electronic literature, cell phone novel Secondhand Memories, the author will demonstrate that the hyperreal quality of the cell phone novel is more appealing to modern readers. Throughout his examination of cell phone novels and digital literature, the author will look at how technology has affected the way reading is done and has facilitated the emergence of keitai shosetsu.
