The perception of texts as being postmodern fiction can lead to a somewhat reductive and defensive reading of those texts. Especially with an eye on intertextual relations, the theoretical postmodern or deconstructive approaches seem to be the only acceptable instrument to understand the complex dynamics of the texts. As a following, the attention is drawn exclusively on the particularly dominant aspects of self-reflexivity. In this paper, I address the limitations of such a view and I present an alternative biased reading which focuses on the affirmative relations between text and intertexts.
