Might be intertextuality
- An allusion is a figure of speech that makes a reference to, or representation of, a place, event, literary work, myth or work of art, either directly or by implication.
Some theorists say that an allusion cannot be an example of intertextuality because it is intentional. But most of what we consider to be intertextual — that is, influenced by other texts — involves conscious decisions related to other texts.
- Some texts allude directly to each other, as in remakes of films, sequels, serialized television shows or parodies. These texts credit the audience with the necessary experience to make sense of the new text while offering the pleasure of recognition.
