An introduction to intertextuality

Literary texts possess meaning, and that is why readers extract meaning from them. The process of extracting meaning from texts is called interpretation. However, in contemporary literary and cultural theory such ideas have been radically changed. It is now believed that works of literature are built from systems, codes, and traditions established by previous works of literature. Crucial to the meaning of a work of literature are also the systems, codes, and traditions of other art forms, such as films, and of culture in general. It is claimed that the act of reading, rather than the interpretation of one work, engages the reader in discovering a network of textual relations. The word “intertextuality” derives from the Latin intertexto, meaning to ‘mingle while weaving’ (Keep et al 2000).

Yagan (indigenous language of Tierra del Fuego) – “The wordless, yet meaningful look shared by two people who both desire to initiate something but are both reluctant to start.” 3. Indonesian – “A joke so poorly told and so unfunny that one cannot help but laugh.” 4. Inuit – “To go outside to check if anyone is coming.” 5. Czech – Milan Kundera, author of The Unbearable Lightness of Being, remarked that, “As for the meaning of this word, I have looked in vain in other languages for an equivalent, though I find it difficult to imagine how anyone can understand the human soul without it.”
