Overview

The essays assembled here are all very early and differ in a number of ways from Bakhtin's previously published work. Readers will probably first suspect that they are encountering a 'new Bakhtin' in the style of these essays. One reason why Bakhtin has so quickly become popular with so many (and varied) readers is that they have found him easy to read, at least by comparison with other theorists now competing for attention.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Bakhtin (1895-1975) was a Russian theorist whose ideas pertain to all of the human sciences, and whose influence in the English-speaking world has steadily increased with the recent translations of his work. This is the next-to-last volume of his essays to appear in English. It contains three pieces that date from the years following the Russian Revolution, when Bakhtin and other intellectuals eagerly participated in the debates, demonstrations, and manifesto writing of the period. Paper edition (70412-7), $13.95. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
