Abstract: This thesis aims to explore the intertextual relationship between Jeanette Winterson’s Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit and the Bible, and the intertextual relationship between Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit and Winterosn’s documented life in her memoir Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal? and interviews. With the help of the core concepts of paratextuality, allegory, and authorship, I shall work with Gerard Genette, Angus Fletcher, and Michel Foucault to examine the intertextuality revealed among the above-mentioned texts.
