Intertextuality is so prominent in our literature, especially in Frankenstein. I employ this handout with my advanced students as a springboard into the discussion of intertextuality and why authors use it in their works. It births fabulous conversations with lots of modern examples. Here I focus on the two dominant allusions (though there are more) of "Rime of the Ancient Mariner and "Tintern Abbey". Links to the full-text of both poems are provided as well as an answer key.
