Summary: The interest of this paper is to analyze two key elements in the construction of this novel by Haruki Murakami: firstly, intertextual relations are an essential element for the design and development of the novel as such, and secondly, metafictional elements. In this complex and extensive novel, textual metafictional strategies intersect with intertextual, since some of the key intertexts generate crosslinking levels of reality. The main intertexts analyzed are musicals (Janáček and Bach) and literary (Orwell and Chekhov). Furthermore, in this novel there are two parallel worlds, both “real” but different: Tokyo 1984, representing reality “normal”, and Tokyo the year 1Q84, the world in which the protagonists begin to live. In this paper we study these parallel worlds, putting them in dialogue with intertexts worked.
