The First Hundred Years of Mikhail Bakhtin synopsis
Among Western critics, MikhailBakhtin (1895-1975) does not need definition. His name has been invoked in literary and cultural studies across the ideological spectrum, from the ancient human to structural to postmodern.
In this candid assessment of his place in Russian and Western thought, Karel Emerson highlights what may be unusual for the non-Russian reader: the founding ideas of Pashtin, formed in the early revolutionary years, but unchanged in his life. With the collapse of the Soviet regime, a real sense of Bakhtin's contribution could be judged in the context of his origins and his contemporary Russian "reclamation".
For the first time in Bakhtin, Karel Emerson tortures large-scale Russian sources to explore Bakhtin's reception in Russia, from his first publication in 1929 until his death, and his re-discovery after his death. After the reception of the published works of Paktin, he studies the role of his ideas in reviving the post-Stalinist Russian literary profession, focusing on the most exciting rethinking of three key concepts in his world: dialogue and multiracial communication.
Carnival. And "dimension", a position Bakhtin considered essential for both ethics and aesthetics.
Finally, contemplate the future of the Bakhtin method, which was more than a tool of criticism: "It will tell you how to learn, write, live, speak, think."
