Intertextual Loops in Modern Drama
Fairleigh Dickinson University Press, 2001 - Literary Criticism - 350 pages
Intertextual Loops in Modern Drama explores the intertextual conversations and palimpsestuous relations between modern and contemporary European dramatists such as Alan Bennett, Elfriede Jelinek, Milan Kundera, Heiner Muller, and Stanislaw Ignacy Witkiewicz, and canonical texts by novelists and dramatists including Choderlos de Laclos, Denis Diderot, Henrik Ibsen, and Franz Kafka. Witkiewicz and Jelinek represent avant-garde subversions and transgressions of Ibsen's theatrical naturalism.
