Intertextuality: "The Byronic Hero: Types and Prototypes" by Peter Thorslev

The Byronic Hero: Types and Prototypes - Peter Thorslev

(Original review, 1981-03-20)

I have to admit that sometimes I use words rather loosely. For me it is ok to call something surreal even if it does not really refer back to the principles and ideas of surrealism. Likewise 'close reading' which I probably do not really do. But the more you pay attention to a text, in my view, and if it merits, in your own view, that attention, the more intensely you are to appreciate it, and still enjoy it too.
