Ämne: [BIBLIST] Efterlyser exempel på återbruk inom litteraturen
Efterlyser romaner där författaren återanvänder litteratur, när de spinner vidare tidigare på författares innehåll, använder deras huvudpersoner eller sätter införfattaren som huvudperson, för att skapa ett helt nytt eget verk. Litterära remakes kanske man kan kalla det, eller kanske det finns ett annat uttryck man kan använda?
ett exempel är Gästen av Niklas Rådström. (jag menar inte i första hand den rena genren historiska romaner, jag tycker inte att Gästen är en sådan trots att den bygger på verkliga händelser)
