What is genre syncretism?

In literature, genre syncretism refers to the combination of elements characteristic of several literary genres within a single work. During the Romantic era, genre syncretism served as a means of rebelling against the imposed rules of classicism. An example of a syncretic work is Adam Mickiewicz’s Dziady.
