I've done Kristeva as part of my MA but it's been a while since I did that part and it's not my area of expertise, so I had to refresh my memory.

"By default, Anglo-American as well as French critics of intertextuality base their understanding of it on Kristeva’s essay ‘Word, dialogue, novel’, the fourth chapter of Semeiotikè, published in Paris in 1969, but not translated into English until 1980.

The classic definition, enshrined in critical readers in English and French, is taken from a sentence early in the essay: intertextuality is ‘a mosaic of quotations; any text is the absorption and transformation of another. The notion of intertextuality replaces that of intersubjectivity and poetic language is read as at least double.’

thank you for your reply! could you please explain what intersubjectivity is? I don't really understand this notion of poetic language being read as double or this idea of dialogism - I'm an undergrad and I feel really out of my depth :/
