Threading the Gap Between Intertextuality and Post-Colonialism

There are numerous reasons to disrupt the ideals of a literary canon. For reading opportunities become indefinite once treating all authors, texts, and genres (although even the word genre is questionable at best) on an equal playing, or shall we say, publication field. Another literary trait emphasizing such collaborative efforts involves the ways different readings share and draw from other readings as an extensive resource. Intertextuality defines this tendency and highlights the various connections and adaptations stemming from the traits a literature shares. Post-Colonialism in particular grants an exciting opportunity for these trends because previously displaced groups of people and identities have the opportunity to define, redefine their identity and characteristics in their own voice.
