Intertextual Pursuits: Literary Mediations in Modern Spanish Narrative

A dozen distinguished Hispanists examine the subject in a variety of fresh ways and from unexpected angles. The studies invoke autobiography and film as well as fiction and confront issues of genre and gender. The first of its kind in the Hispanic arena, this book proves that every literary text is by definition an amalgam of intertextual plays and ploys and that intertextuality itself is as inexhaustible as its applications.
