INTERTEXTS publishes articles that employ innovative approaches to explore relations between literary and other texts, be they literary, historical, theoretical, philosophical, or social. Hybrid methodologies combining elements from a range of disciplines are encouraged and methodological reflections and argumentation are valued, especially when combined with detailed textual analysis. The journal is particularly interested in the use of theoretical perspectives to analyze texts other than those to which they are generally applied, hoping to provide not only new understandings of familiar texts but also to use those texts to examine the virtues and limitations of contemporary literary theory.
