Abstract: The object of this thesis is to discuss the limits of the hypertext concept. The issue is whether the concept of hypertext necessarily depends on the conditions of the electronic media and www, or if the concept of hypertext more likely is founded on certain textual structures and strategies. In the light of contributions to hypertext theory during the 1990s, this thesis compares different views on hypertext, and concludes with an evaluation. The poem it the authors own translation of the original Danish title det, written in 1969 by the system-poet Inger Christensen, is the object of this case study. The poem is analysed with respect to its structural organisation and literary composition. In the search for a nonfixed structure, the analysis concentrates on: + sequentiality and linearity in the systems of order among the passages in the poem + four essential themes that interrelate in certain ways Both these approaches to the analysis reveal aspects that contribute to the sequential mobility of the text. This thesis concludes that the poem it fulfills the criteria of hypertext, viewed as a structural quality in texts.
