The diploma thesis deals with intertextual references present in the trilogy of novels – Rapsodija 20 (1982), Iskanje drugega (1991) and Reka pozabe (2007) – by Slovene translator, poet, essayist and prose writer as well as politician Andrej Capuder. After revisiting the author’s life and work, the thesis focuses on the content, genre and literary historical overview of the works in question. Further on, the theoretical frame and the existent intertextual analyses inside the critical and literary historical sphere are presented. The middle part of the research deals with the tripartite analysis of the intertextual references in regard to the language used, the chosen texts and the purpose of intertextuality. Due to the frequent intertextual references, their scope and diversity, intertextuality proves to be the most conspicuous process of stylistic (formal) design and the semantic (content-based) insight in Capuder’s trilogy while the spirit of pre-modernist historical disposition and Capuder’s erudite literary voice bring the trilogy a special (not yet occupied) place in the context of Slovene novel writing.
