Brian Mugendi Micheni, Dr. Christine Atieno Peter
Texts borrowing from each other has been there since the existence of humankind and scholars refer to this borrowing as intertextuality. Many intertextuality scholars have gone ahead to use the phrase “no text is an island” to emphasize on the existence of intertextuality in everyday communication of humankind through spoken words or written works. The objective of the study is to determine whether there are intertextual relations between the stories, Nyamgondho Wuod Ombare and Pied Piper of Hamelin. The study aims to determine instances of intertextuality between the two stories. The study discovered that the two texts demonstrate several instances of intertextuality, especially the storyline of the texts. It discussed various manifestations of intertextual relations in the texts.
