Editorial Reviews

An anthology of 25 new and reprinted essays illuminating major categories and contentious nodes in Bakhtin's thought. The selection of essays reflects an attempt to strike a balance between disciples and critics of Bakhtin's legacy, and between Russian and non-Russian extensions of that legacy. Subjects include Bakhtin in Russian culture of the 20th century, philosophical roots of polyphony, and Bakhtin and orthodox theology. Contributors include some of Bakhtin's students and contemporaries. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
