The paper consists of four parts. The introductory part focuses to the argument made by the Slovenian literary theorist M. Juvan who claims that literary theory should be restructured as the theory of literary discourse, based on the “discourse turn” in the contemporary stylistics. The paper further discusses the style in the field of discourse by analysing ambiguous relationship between style and discourse, and by introducing the concept of style as an identity marker (Juvan). This is followed by the concept of the stylistics of (inter)discourse based on the term interdiscursivity. The notion of interdiscursivity is discussed through its different applications and definitions (Kovačević and Badurina, Fairclough, Pêcheux, Link), and its distinctiveness in relation to intertextuality. The final part of the paper offers an analysis of interdiscursivity in selected literary texts, with special emphasis on the texts of literary avant-garde (Slabinac), and relates interdiscursivity to J. Rancière’s politics of literature.
