The study of literary texts can be dramatically enriched if one takes into account the material form in which they are presented to the reader: print or non-print, book or magazine, manuscript or film adaptation, etc. In this course, we will focus on the relationships between text and medium, more precisely between the text and the other elements that may surround it (like illustrations) or between the text and the various material forms that shape it (like the digital hypertext format).
