What do Paradise Regained and Terminator 2 have in common? They are both sequels, both chronological extensions of narratives that were originally envisioned as closed and complete works. Part Two explores the phenomenon of secondary narrative by studying the conditions that determine its production and reception. The volume encompasses works of poetry, drama, prose, and films, moving from Homer to Hollywood. Each piece is grounded in a specific genre or period and while engaging a broader historical or theoretical perspective.
