Abstract

Postcolonial intertextuality is a new intertextual theory that aims to analyze the intertextual relations between the texts of the colonized countries and the Western texts.The central core of these studies is culture and cultural hegemony. Spy literature is one of the types of texts produced in the Western countries adapted from the West.“Diamond Shine” is an example of an Arabic story in the spy genre, with evidence evolving from an English story “Diamonds are forever”. The present study has attempted to describe how Homi-baba's post-colonial relationship with the Western text was established by its author as an analytical-descriptive method, based on post-colonial theory. The results show that, firstly, in the context of this story's serious implication, the dominance of imitation is dominated by imitation; secondly, this eastern author's adaptation of the Western spy style was conscious and not only did not lead to blind imitation but also a factor in the emergence of power. He produced new texts along with preserving and introducing Eastern-Arab culture and inviting other cultures.
