The Idea of Folklore and Intertextuality in Asssamese Poetry: A Study
An attempt is made in this paper to examine how folklore has been an integral inspiration for some Assamese poets. Meanwhile the paper will try to explore intertextuality in certain texts of Assamese poetry and thereby to see its connection with folklore. The study, however, will not deal with a thorough reading of Assamese poetry over the years. Rather the discussion will be confined only to those poetic texts where folklore and intertextuality have been really instrumental.
