Intertextuality1

Intertextuality

  • Print culture gave birth to the romantic notions of ´originality´ and ´creativity´,

  • Doctrines of intertextuality arose in past decades

  • Writers concerned, aware of literary history,and of the de facto intertextuality of their own works. Aware that they may be producing nothing really new or fresh, under the ´influence´ of other texts


Example of intertextuality

Example of intertextuality

  • Clear, and present X

  • I love to have obvious (when you see it) examples to explain those little words, that you know what mean, but can´t always find the right word in your first language to explain it.


Anne hutchinson 1591 1643

Anne Hutchinson (1591-1643)

  • Born Anne Marbury in Alford,Lincolnshire, England

  • Moved to Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1634

  • 1635 Begins holding assemblies for women in her home

  • 1637 brought to trial for inciting religious disharmony and stirring up political dissent; the General Court sentences her to banishment


She came first

She came first!!!

  • Anne Hutchinson 1591-1643, 52 years old

  • Nathaniel Hawthorne 1804-1864

  • Their birth over 200 years apart


Nathaniel hawthorne

Nathaniel Hawthorne

  • Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804-1864)

  • The Scarlett Letter published 1850, Hester Prynne-Anne Hutchinson = intertextuality

  • Anne Hutchinson the model/precursor to Hester Prynne with minor adapting, both are shunned by society, and still show grace, in the trivial, brutal and exhausting life of puritans in the seventeenth century


Intertextuality2

Intertextuality

  • The Scarlett Letter A = Adulteress

  • The story is about puritanism as well as about the human frailty!!!

  • Puritans condemned both women, and both Anne and Hester are admirable and attractive, neither one believes they have done anything wrong. Both true to themselves and what they believe in.


Intertextuality3

Intertextuality

  • From Anne Hutchinson´s life experience to the character Hester Prynne in Scarlett Letter ?

  • Did it go from orally told life-story to writing?

  • Or did Hawthorne read about the history of his hometown ? Did he read the transcript of Anne Hutchinson´s trial?

  • You choose !!!
