Shmuel Yosef Agnon, Judaic Studies, literature
While previous critics have raised the question of outside
influences upon Agnon, his fiction has seldom been read in
connection with contemporary views of intertextuality. Agnon
specialists might learn from the theories of Harold Bloom, for
example, as they are set forth in The Anxiety of Influence
and A Map of Misreading. This article will provide
specific examples of intertextual and interlinguistic reading,
applied to Agnon's "Panim Aherot" and ul'Veit Abba", and suggest
the broader significance of these approaches.
