INTERTEXTUALITY IN PÉTER ESTERHÁZY’S FICTION AND ITS RECEPTION IN FRANCE
Languages of publication
Péter Esterházy has been for over 20 years one of the most important contemporary Hungarian writers. While postmodernist, he highly respects modernist predecessors like Dezső Kosztolányi or Gezá Ottlik, and implicitly the modernist values they represent. Acknowledged as a great writer in Europe as well as in Hungary, Esterházy’s major work, Harmonia Caelstis, printed at Gallimard, generated a number of eulogistic reviews. An important feature of his work remains intertextuality, the dialogue with great European writers and philosophers. Apart from humour, sensuality and encyclopedic knowledge, the frequent references to French literature have contributed to making him quite popular in France.
