Abstract
Mashups—texts composed by combining portions from several original texts—are a new literary form. In order to better understand this form, I have created my own literary mashup, Buchstauben, which allowed me to encounter first-hand the nuances of the form. As such, my thesis consists of both my own literary mashup, Buchstauben, as well as a critical component, in which I explore the history of the mashup, from the Classic poetic technique of the cento to the modern work of mashup artists such as Girl Talk. The critical component also serves as a reflection on my own experiences in composing a mashup, and the challenges this form poses to mashup artist, especially in light of contemporary copyright concerns.
