Chapter Summary

[After a brief justification and clarification of the term ‘intermediality’ (rather than ‘intertextuality’, which is a term referring to ‘intramedial contacts’) the essay, partly inspired by Irina Rajewsky’s research in the field, presents a typology of basic intermedial forms, which is an expansion of my more narrow ‘intracompositional’ conception of ‘intermediality’ as detailed in essay no. 9. The typology, besides comprising the two intracompositional forms of plurimediality and (explicit and implicit) intermedial reference, now also incorporates ‘extracompositional’ forms, in particular intermedial transposition and transmediality (medially non-specific phenomena occurring in more than one medium without implying a given medial source; a form which Rajewsky, however, does not consider to belong to ‘intermediality’). The essay then addresses the relevance of intermediality as a helpful notion for literary studies and illustrates this relevance with various examples including Peter Ackroyd’s novel, English Music. In conclusion, further perspectives on intermedial research are adumbrated.]
