Abstract
To have an intertextual perspective of Chinese Dream and American Dream, the paper employs Julia Kristeva’s concept of intertextuality and probes into their corresponding historical backgrounds for the consideration of their cultural roots and unique developments. Obviously, the two dreams are deeply rooted in their own respective traditions and cultures which characterize themselves with intertextual traces, either interweaving or echoing. Additionally, there are more evidences to demonstrate that the two dreams are intrinsically intertextual through observing and examining their common pursuits that necessarily but not comprehensively include (1) the prosperity of the nation, (2) the happiness of the people, (3) the harmony of the society and (4) the peace of the world. Finally, the paper summarizes that the intertextual relationship of Chinese Dream and American Dream needs further argumentation by referring to the budding research progress while the research perspectives should be diversified at home and abroad in the future.
