Summary/Abstract: Departing from the idea of consubstantial relational and hybrid dimensions to hypertextuality (Frank Wagner), this article analyses the writing practices at work in Jacques et son maître. Hommage à Denis Diderot en trois actes (1971), by Milan Kundera, a theatrical variationon Jacques le Fataliste et son maître. The direct dialogue between the two works is emphasised through the notions of rewriting, hypertextuality,variation, repetition, metatextuality, aiming to demonstrate that Kundera’stext is not a mere adaptation, but an entirely original creation which exploits the latent potential of Diderot’s novel, each of the two texts functioning as the universe of reference for the other.
