"The outstanding originality of this book lies in the detail and perspicuity with which interrelations are traced between texts, it even seems that relations sometimes work backwards. Above all, this book does not offer a 'theory of intertextuality.' Rather, it is a many-sided survey of the topic, open-ended and truthful. It is fresh and inspirational." --Raymond Monelle, Reader in Music at the University of Edinburgh and author of Linguistics and Semiotics in Music
