For example, ‘to be a subscriber to the InThinking website or not to be a subscriber to the InThinking website is an (admittedly not particularly imaginative) intertextual reference to Shakespeare’s play Hamlet. Intertextuality works at many levels, including lexical, phonological and graphilogical.
