The Limits of Intertextuality

If discourses articulate concepts through a system of signs which signify by means of their relationship to each other rather than to entities in the world, and if literature is a signifying practice, all it can reflect is the order inscribed in particular discourses, not the nature of the world.”

– Catherine Belsey, Critical Practice (p.46)
