My paper focuses on an increasingly popular segment of contemporary fiction, namely novelistic refashioning of past stories and people’s lives in literary biographies and biofictions. These texts exhibit diverse appropriations of facts, fictional characters, novels, conventions, motifs, all assisting in establishing correspondences between the past and the present in various ways (Kirchknopf:Dissertation).My study steps towards the blending of the traditional critical theory and the creative practice, theory and craft of the new postmodern fiction. It stages a theoretical and practical enquiry in the double, hybrid functions of the texts as historical and practical.
