    I'm currently studying this for a university assessment paper, but I really am struggling at why Hutcheon is trying to get across. I understand her idea of 'adaption running amok' but I can not see how to argue with a point such a this. My goal is to find an argument but perhaps I am not reading between the lines enough. Could anybody please help or give some guidance as to where I am going wrong?

    This is for my module called Critical Contexts - any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm afraid I'm not familiar with this work but if I were you I would - journal access permitting - look at how other people have critically engaged with what she has to say and use that as the basis for your own arguments.
