Historiographic metafiction is a term coined by Canadian literary theorist Linda Hutcheon in the late s. It incorporates three domains: fiction , history , and theory. The term is used for works of fiction which combine the literary devices of metafiction with historical fiction. Works regarded as historiographic metafiction are also distinguished by frequent allusions to other artistic, historical and literary texts i. Although Hutcheon said that historiographic metafiction is not another version of the historical novel , there are scholars e. Monika Fludernik who describe it as such, citing that it is simply an updated late-twentieth-century version of the genre for its embrace of the conceptualizations of the novel and of the historical in the twentieth century.
