Both of the last two examples show that intertextuality is a matter of recontextualization (a concept introduced in chapter 2) — a movement from one context to another, entailing particular transformations consequent upon how the material that is moved, recontextualized, figures within that new context. So in the case of reported speech, writing or thought, there are two interconnected issues to address: a)the relationship between the report and the original (the event that is reported); b)the relationship between the report and the rest of the text in which it occurs — how the report figures in the text, what work the reporting does in the text.
