Abstract

Intertextuality, even in the sense of parody, is not simply a rhetorical strategy or a form of writing, but a complex cognitive, hermeneutic and critical practice, a transcultural action that redefines the plural and dynamic identity of literary works. The essay explores two contemporary rewritings of Shakespeare’s Macbeth. The first is Giovanni Testori’s Macbetto, an expressionistic mixture of dialect, Latin, Italian and neologisms. The second, I Polacchi dall’irriducibile Ubu di Alfred Jarry, staged by Teatro delle Albe in 1998 in Ravenna, in 2005 in Chicago and in 2007 in Diol Kadd in Senegal, is a multilingual, multiethnic, and multicultural rewriting of Alfred Jarry’s Ubu Roi, in turn a parody of Macbeth. In both cases, these works break through the boundaries of parody and testify to a broader and more personal itinerary of poetic, aesthetic, linguistic and multicultural research.
