Bakhtin proclaims the dominance of the novel as a genre, and the difficulty of strictly defining its hegemony because of its tendency to envelop other genres. Later he discusses literature and language in general, and how it continually is changed by other systems such as subgenres, dialects, and infinitely fragmented languages constantly in "dialogue" with each other.
