Identifying Intertextual Relations in Salinger’s Story “Franny and Zooey”, Mehrjui’s “Hamoon” and Kierkegaard’s “Fear and Trembling”

Atefeh Amiri, Maryam Zarei


This article aims at studying intertextuality in three different texts. These texts are: 1) Kierkegaard’s “Fear and Trembling” 2) Salinger’s “Franny and Zooey” and 3) Mehrjui’s “Hamoon”. To this end, Genette’s (1997) concepts and ideas have been adapted. The main concepts are intertextuality and its three types: obvious intertextuality, concealed intertextuality and implicit intertextuality. Based on these concepts and how Genette defines them, it is shown that intertextuality in these texts is implicit rather than obvious or concealed.
