META-LITERARY NARRATIVE IN READING EDUCATION: THE CASE OF CONTEMPORARY GERMAN YOUTH NOVELS (pp. 112-126)

Juan José Hernández Medina

Resumen


In this investigation, we study the presence of a transgressive poetic practice in German young readers’ narrative
from the 21st century that brings forth a myriad of advantages where the reader-literacy competence of the young
readers are concerned. The term in question is deemed as metaliterature which is a textual modality that breaks
the mould and creates the topic of the current conventions of traditional rhetoric which requires a more active
participation on behalf of the reader throughout the process of how the work is to be perceived.
With this intention in mind, three meta-literary resources frequently used in twelve contemporary young reader
German novels have undergone investigation which reinforce their own nature of literary artefacts: intertextuality,
metalepsis and meta-literary observations. These resources trigger the activation of reader-literary strategies
during the receptive process of the work, given that it breaks and reveals basic codes in the art of the written word.
Key Words: Literature Education; intertextuality; metalepsis; metaliterature.
