We are having a really fascinating discussion at the LMCS Group about Intertextuality. Robert Hill is our fielded this time and he’s been doing a superb job. Actually, he’s going in a quite different direction of what I expected because instead of tackling the topic from a sort of Kristevian point of view he is actually approaching it from the practical classroom side of it.
I mean, we are not discussing intertextuality in the way texts talk about texts, but in the way texts can be connected with each other, both in written form and using other media. Rob’s opening example was Dr. Jeckill and Mr. Hide and the Incredible Hulk (!) Now people are coming up with all sorts of connections and this has been really really engaging!
Obviously I had to post on Maiden’s songs and all their rich lit background
