Face to Face: Bakhtin in Russia and the West
Carol Adlam, Rachel Falconer, Vitalii Makhlin, Leslie Pinfield
A&C Black, Jun 1, 1997 - Literary Criticism - 400 pages
So far, in the West, the dissemination of Bakhtinian thought has proceeded with little or no awareness of contemporary approaches to Bakhtin in his homeland. This collection offers unprecedented access to leading Russian research in juxtaposition with important Western scholarship on Bakhtin. Taking its cue from Bakhtin as founder of dialogical criticism, Face to Face aims to stimulate dialogue across disciplines and national boundaries.
