Moran as secret agent
In this article I discuss parody as a form of intertextual play.I consider PartTwo of Molloy in relation to the conventions of the 'spy thriller' with Moran as a parodic version of the secret agent.

I formulate the idea of parody as taking place in what I term an 'intertextual play space': a space which disturbs and blurs the neat, sharp lines that could be seen to separate texts from texts: there is contamination, and a fruitful one, which replaces any idea of singularity with plurality.

Abstract

In this article I discuss parody as a form of intertextual play.I consider PartTwo of Molloy in relation to the conventions of the 'spy thriller' with Moran as a parodic version of the secret agent.

I formulate the idea of parody as taking place in what I term an 'intertextual play space': a space which disturbs and blurs the neat, sharp lines that could be seen to separate texts from texts: there is contamination, and a fruitful one, which replaces any idea of singularity with plurality.
