Abstract


This paper discusses intertextual phenomena in the novels The Neverending Story, Inkheart, and The City of Dreaming Books. Quotations and references in the novels are analysed as well as their functions, which range from showing the literary world as a net of quotations, characterisations of personas, and developing a sense of humour in young readers.

Keywords
