Intertextual interventions in the novels of Marlene Streeruwitz and Lilian Faschinger
Hallam, Lynne (2012) Intertextual interventions in the novels of Marlene Streeruwitz and Lilian Faschinger. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
This thesis considers prose texts by the Austrian authors Marlene Streeruwitz and Lilian Faschinger from the viewpoint of intertextuality. The research does not rely on the narrow definitions of intertextuality which are concerned with the appearance of an anterior text in a later text, or on studies of source and influence. Rather my treatment of the novels considers the way meanings are constructed by a network of cultural and social discourses which embody distinct codes, expectations and assumptions. This study discusses the ways in which the chosen texts, through their intertexts, display a postmodern impetus towards reappropriating authorized discourse in new and challenging ways, from feminist perspectives.
