9780195070637: Dialogue and Critical Discourse: Language, Culture, Critical Theory

This interdisciplinary volume of collected, mostly unpublished essays demonstrates how Mikhail Bakhtin's theory of dialogic meaning--and its subsequent elaborations--have influenced a wide range of critical discourses. With essays by Michael Holquist, Jerome J. McGann, John Searle, Deborah Tannen, Gary Saul Morson, Caryl Emerson, Shirley Brice Heath, Don H. Bialostosky, Paul Friedrich, Timothy Austin, John Farrell, Rachel May, and Michael Macovski, the collection explores dialogue not only as an exchange among intratextual voices, but as an extratextual interplay of historical influences, oral forms, and cultural heuristics as well. Such approaches extend the implications of dialogue beyond the boundaries of literary theory, to anthropology, philosophy, linguistics, and cultural studies. The essays address such issues as the establishment and exercise of political power, the relation between conversational and literary discourse, the historical development of the essay, and the idea of literature as social action. Taken together, the essays argue for a redefinition of literary meaning--one that is communal, interactive, and vocatively created. They demonstrate that literary meaning is not rendered by a single narrator, nor even by a solitary author--but is incrementally exchanged and constructed.

About the Author:


Michael Macovski is Associate Professor of English at Fordham University in New York. He is the author of Dialogue and Literature: Apostrophe, Auditors, and the Collapse of Romantic Discourse (OUP, 1994), as well as articles on Emily Brontë, Lord Byron, and the history of publishing.

Review:

"The pentad of items in the title covers many bases, and so is at once impressive and defensive....Every paper in the collection will be of interest to one kind of reader or another...a valuable addition to discourse and Bakhtin studies."--Social Semiotics

"Dialogue and Critical Discourse succeeds...at developing its own dialogue among its eclectic voices."--The Wordsworth Circle

Book Description Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 1997. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This interdisciplinary volume of collected, unpublished essays demonstrates the importance of the influential Russian formalist Mikhail Bakhtin s theory of dialogic meaning for a wide range of textual problems. The book is organized around three interlocking dimensions of this dialogue: Part I delineates dialogic interactions between voices of a single text; Part II traces such exchanges on an intertextual level; and Part III locates both kinds of exchanges within the dialogue between speakers, authors, and readers. Within this framework, such distinguished scholars as Deborah Tannen, Shirley Brice Heath, and John Searle address questions including rhetorical models for the establishment and exercise of political power, intimacy and understanding in literary speech, polyphonic narrative forms, the relationship between conversational and literary discourse, and the issue of literature as social action. The essays argue for a redefinition of literary meaning - one that is communal, interactive, and vocatively created. They demonstrate that literary meaning is not rendered by a single narrator, nor even by a solitary author, but is incrementally constructed and exchanged. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780195070637
