Julia Kristeva and Literary Theory (Transitions)

Most critics agree that the term was coined in the late s by Julia Kristeva, who combined ideas from Bakhtin on the social context of language with Saussure's positing of the systematic features of language. The notion of intertextuality replaces that of intersubjectivity, and poetic language is read as at least double " Kristeva 85, cited in Moi Graham Allen describes this move as "one in which assertions of objectivity, scientific rigour, methodological stability and other highly rationalistic-sounding terms are replaced by an emphasis on uncertainty, indeterminacy, incommunicability, subjectivity, desire, pleasure and play" 3.

This uncertainty undercut authorial intention and allowed Roland Barthes to proclaim the liberation of the reader 'from the traditional power and authority of the figure of the 'author,' who was now 'dead'" Allen 4. The foregoing constitutes a seriously abbreviated history of the term intertextuality, but the bottom line is its current association with postmodernism, which in turn, is associated with "pastiches, imitation and the mixing of already established styles and practices" Allen 5.

Intertextuality gains definitional specificity by comparison with "other globalizing and rival terms for cultural recycling such as 'interdiscursivity,' 'interdisciplinarity' and 'hypertext'" Orr 7. Also potentially in the mix is the term intermediality, which leapfrogs altogether the necessity of a text—explicit or implicit—a characteristic that separates it clearly from intertextuality. Graham Allen writes that "[i]ntertextuality seems such a useful term because it foregrounds notions of relationality, interconnectedness and interdependence in modern cultural life" 5.

Mary Orr adds: "By highlighting unvoiced modes of intertextual work in other guises—paraphrase, formulaic expression, variant, recontextualization, translation—various tacit critical agendas behind intertextuality's representations become visible. Among intertextuality's most practical [End Page ] functions is re- evaluation by means of comparison, counter-position and contrast" 7. Finally, intertextuality has been appropriated and adapted by non-literary art forms so that it is not—despite the embedded word "text"—exclusively related to works of literature or other written texts, including virtual texts.

And it has a critical function: intertextuality, like influence or imitation, is not neutral and thus hints at its underlying socio-political importance. The essays grouped together here were originally presented in a seminar at the acla meeting in New Orleans entitled "Intertextualities: Text, Image, and Beyond. The interests represented in these essays are widely varied and include the interplay of a text and seemingly unrelated photos; an ekphrastic commentary on a painting, both of which are treated in a poem; an overview of iconoclastic tendencies in the graphic novel; and a close reading of an innovative graphic novel, which, at first glance, seems highly unsuited thematically to the genre.

Pamuk's work contests the idea of photographs as complements to literary texts, since the images seem, at first glance, to have little connection to the narrative. Pamuk's idiosyncratic interpretations of the photos reveal a subjective metatext hovering between the two narratives, that of the images and that of the text. New Book.
