The paper analyses the recent prose by Alojz Majetić written for his blog. His last novel Voices under the Surface is unique in Croatian and world literature owing to its »four-hand« creation, being written together with the young poetess Daniela Trputec that he met through comments she left under one of his blog posts. Understanding literature as a specific type of communication, the paper attempts to answer the following question: does internet literature make the reader rightly wonder whether a literary text as the basis of the modern literary science, has disappeared in the new media environment? The analysis suggests an unexpected answer: in the era of blogging, literature has returned to its original aesthetics under the auspices of the ritual.
