Intertextuality in Literature

All books borrow ideas from other books, creating a web of connections that enhances our reading experience.

Intertextuality: The interaction between texts, where one book references or draws upon another.

Examples: "West Side Story" is a modern take on "Romeo and Juliet," while Woody Allen's "A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy" nods to Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream."

Universal Messages: Authors explore universal themes and messages about the human condition through intertextual references.
