Abstract

The intertextual space is potentially a valuable resource for women authors writing self-consciously within a female literary heritage. For Karin Struck, the intertextual mode is a central feature, reflecting and supporting the thematic concern with making connections that runs through her texts. This article offers a survey of her work, analyzing her intertextual practice and assessing the value of an intertextual mode employed principally to set in place structures of identification with anterior texts. The author argues that the later text Ingeborg B. Duell mit dem Spiegelbild is both more ambitious in this respect and less sophisticated than the early texts in its handling of the inherent tensions of intertextual narratives. (MS)
