Summary
The author explores the spectrum of romantic narrative that pervades the digital age, from McLuhan's utopian vision of social reintegration by electronic communications to the claims of cyberspace to offer new realities. Populating these narratives are cyborgs, computerized agents, avatars and characters that have putative digital identities
