A brief comment on “multi-layering”, a term employed in A.Perlstein’s persuasive argumentation. Perhaps this term could be set close to the other one, “overdetermination” (employed by Freud in the early Twentieth Century, to describe the superimposing threads of dream images forming knots at the points at which many different themes converged and crossed in a dynamic process ). In that case the “multilayering” is often a phenomenon of language, inescapable at times but not a deliberate complex network of allusions that are managed and intended by the author. JM
