Blog Tour: A Dream Within A Dream


Ingrid stopped by A Dream within a Dream to speak about intertextuality as part of her Around the World in 80 Days Blog Tour.

Excerpt from A Dream within a Dream:

I have previous posted on intertextuality by imitation, but this post is about intertextuality by quotation. I have read a thousand (probably not an exaggeration) books which directly or indirectly reference other books, poetry, films, paintings, songs, etc. A lot of books also include an epigraph to capitalize on prior understanding of a text, including its themes.

Bible passages tend to be popular (I am using one in my current WIP!). Stephanie Meyer used a quote from Genesis in Twilight to foreshadow the forbidden relationship between Bella and Edward:

But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil,

for in the day that thou eatest thereof, 
thou shalt surely die.
