    Chapter One  INTRODUCTION

    1.1 Background of the Study

    Etymologically, intertextuality originates from Latin word intertexto, which means to  intermingle  while  weaving.  Intertextuality  refers  to  the  phenomenon  that  any discourses  contain  quotations  or  segments  from  other  texts.  The  concept  of intertextuality has undergone  a long-term development in literary  criticism, which can be  traced  back  to  Saussurean  linguistic  idea  that  “Language  is  a  system  of interdependent  terms  in  which  the  value  of  each  term  results  solely  from  the simultaneous presence of the others” (Saussure, 1974: 78). The term intertextuality is initially coined by French semiotician Kristeva in her essay titled “Word, Dialogue and Novel” in the late 1960s, and since her coinage of the term, intertextuality has exercised a widespread influence and become a dominant idea in literary and cultural studies. In general,  the  research  on  the  theory  of  intertextuality  can  be  mainly  divided  into  three fields:  structuralism,  post-structuralism  and  deconstructionism.  According  to  Kristeva (1986),  every  text  is  involved  with  a  network  among  readers,  writers  and  other  texts instead of being self-contained. Therefore, the text we read is not restricted to a closed system,  instead  it  will  carry  the  evidence  of  its  existence  in  other  texts  by  means  of quotations, references, citations, allusions, etc. 


    1.2 Objectives of the Study

    As  an  essential  medium  of  international  academic  exchange,  academic  thesis  has become increasingly significant for scholars. Literature review is an indispensable part of  academic  thesis  which  determines  the  quality  of  academic  writing.  The  writing  of literature  review  is  a  process  in  which  previous  research  achievements  are  discussed with  their  inherent  logicality  evaluated  and  analyzed.  Literature  review  is  not  a  sheer enumeration  of  numerous  relevant  research,  instead,  author?s  own  reading  and understanding  are  also  involved  in  literature  review.  As  Boote  and  Beile  (2005) maintain, significant research will not be conducted on condition that a researcher does not  have  a  thorough  understanding  of  prior  literature  in  the  field,  which  will  add  a disadvantage to researcher?s writing of literature review. According to Bakhtin (1981: 338),  half  of  the  words  that  people  utter  everyday  belong  to  someone  else,  in  other words,  intertextuality  is  omnipresent  in  practical  life  and  literature  review  has  no exception.  Therefore,  a  reasonable  structure  and  an  effective  use  of  reporting  verbs which is a mark of intertextuality in literature review may demand increasing concerns among Chinese native authors.
