Problems of Dostoevsky's poetics by M. M Bakhtin( Book )

221 editions published between 1963 and 2016 in 10 languages and held by 2,335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the ideal introduction to the thought of Mikhail Bakhtin. Bakhtin is becoming established as one of the giants of 20th century literary criticsm, despite his work being unknown in the West until the 1970's. This book is less about Dostoyevsky per se, rather a profound meditation on how Dostoyevsky's art exemplifies the central concern of Bakhtin, the concept of 'dialogism'. This idea defies a simple definition; the book in exploring manifold aspects of it, itself becomes truly dialogic. If you value Dostoyevsky as an artist, require an antidote to the chill winds of modern 'Theory', or simply appreciate genius at work, catch up with one of the best kept secrets in literature
Rabelais and his world by M. M Bakhtin( Book )

133 editions published between 1965 and 2015 in 9 languages and held by 2,269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic work by the Russian philosopher and literary theorist Mikhail Bakhtin (1895-1975) examines popular humor and folk culture in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. One of the essential texts of a theorist who is rapidly becoming a major reference in contemporary thought, Rabelais and His World is essential reading for anyone interested in problems of language and text and in cultural interpretation
Speech genres and other late essays by M. M Bakhtin( Book )

162 editions published between 1978 and 2017 in 8 languages and held by 1,592 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Speech Genres and Other Late Essays presents six short works from Bakhtin's Esthetics of Creative Discourse, published in Moscow in 1979. This is the last of Bakhtin's extant manuscripts published in the Soviet Union. All but one of these essays (the one on the Bildungsroman) were written in Bakhtin's later years and thus they bear the stamp of a thinker who has accumulated a huge storehouse of factual material, to which he has devoted a lifetime of analysis, reflection, and reconsideration."--Page 4 of cover
The dialogic imagination : four essays by M. M Bakhtin( Book )

100 editions published between 1981 and 2014 in English and held by 1,559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These essays reveal Mikhail Bakhtin (1895-1975)--known in the West largely through his studies of Rabelais and Dostoevsky--as a philosopher of language, a cultural historian, and a major theoretician of the novel. The Dialogic Imaginationpresents, in superb English translation, four selections fromVoprosy literatury i estetiki(Problems of literature and esthetics), published in Moscow in 1975. The volume also contains a lengthy introduction to Bakhtin and his thought and a glossary of terminology. Bakhtin uses the category "novel" in a highly idiosyncratic way, claiming for it vastly larger territory than has been traditionally accepted. For him, the novel is not so much a genre as it is a force, "novelness," which he discusses in "From the Prehistory of Novelistic Discourse." Two essays, "Epic and Novel" and "Forms of Time and of the Chronotope in the Novel," deal with literary history in Bakhtin's own unorthodox way. In the final essay, he discusses literature and language in general, which he sees as stratified, constantly changing systems of subgenres, dialects, and fragmented "languages" in battle with one another

Esthétique et théorie du roman by M. M Bakhtin( Book )

59 editions published between 1975 and 2013 in French and Undetermined and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce livre vient compléter la publication des oeuvres du théoricien russe Mikhail Bakhtine. Paru à Moscou en 1975, il constitue le panneau central d'un triptyque dont le ##Dostoïevski## (écrit en 1929, réédité en 1963) et le ##Rabelais## (paru en 1965 mais terminé en 1941) sont déjà connus du public français. Il s'agit ici d'articles dont le premier est de 1924, mais tous les autres de la période 1930-1940. Ce livre permet d'ajouter une dimension théorique à la recherche importante de Bakhtine: il cherche à dépasser le formalisme et à réintégrer dans l'analyse l'étude des idées. Il cherche à rattacher la naissance du roman d'une prise de conscience du langage, d'une remise en question de la langue unique (par exemple le latin vis-à-vis du français au Moyen Age français). Ouvrage capital dans la critique contemporaine, qui fait de Bakhtine un grand "précurseur de la sémiotique contemporaine."
Toward a philosophy of the act by M. M Bakhtin( Book )

20 editions published between 1993 and 1999 in English and Spanish and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rescued in 1972 from a storeroom in which rats and seeping water had severely damaged the fifty-year-old manuscript, this text is the earliest major work (1919-1921) of the great Russian philosopher Mikhail Bakhtin. Toward a Philosophy of the Act contains the first occurrences of themes that occupied Bakhtin throughout his long career. The topics of authoring, responsibility, self and other, the moral significance of "outsideness," participatory thinking, the implications for the individual subject of having "no-alibi in existence," the relation between the world as experienced in actions and the world as represented in discourse - all are broached here in the white heat of discovery. This is the "heart of the heart" of Bakhtin, the center of the dialogue between being and language, the world and mind, "the given" and "the created" that forms the core of Bakhtin's distinctive dialogism. A special feature of this work is Bakhtin's struggle with the philosophy of Immanuel Kant. Put very simply, this text is an attempt to go beyond Kant's formulation of the ethical imperative. Bakhtin raises issues of cultural relativity, the situatedness of knowledge, and the relation of literary theory to moral philosophy that remain as challenging as when they were first written. Toward a Philosophy of the Act will be important reading for scholars across the humanities as they grapple with the increasingly vexed relationship between aesthetics and ethics

Le marxisme et la philosophie du langage : essai d'application de la méthode sociologique en linguistique by M. M Bakhtin( Book )

31 editions published between 1977 and 2000 in French and Undetermined and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Au milieu du bouillonnement intellectuel des années vingt en U.R.S.S., Mikhaïl Bakhtine, philosophe et critique littéraire, sʹinterroge sur les rapports entre lʹidéologie, le langage et le psychisme. Refusant la dichotomie saussurienne langue / parole, qui vide la pratique linguistique de sa substance, il affirme la nature sociale du signe et pose les fondements dʹune linguistique de lʹénonciation en tant que manifestation sociale et non individuelle. Au signe figé, réduit à nʹêtre quʹun "signal", il oppose le signe mouvant, changeant, arène où se jouent les conflits sociaux. Publié en 1929 à Leningrad sous le nom de Volochinov, élève de Bakhtine, cet ouvrage paraît pour la première fois sous le nom de son véritable auteur. -- Back cover

Estetica e romanzo by M. M Bakhtin( Book )

30 editions published between 1979 and 2013 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Questa è la raccolta dei lavori teorici di Michail Bachtin, la cui opera si forma al confine tra filosofia, storia e letteratura e costituisce il contributo piú originale e fecondo che, dopo i <<formalisti>>, la cultura russa abbia dato alla <<scienza della letteratura>>. In questi saggi, scritti per lo piú negli anni Venti e Trenta e pubblicati postumi, Bachtin elabora una teoria del romanzo arditamente originale e la verifica su tutto l'arco di sviluppo di questo genere letterario, dal romanzo greco e latino alla biografia antica, dal romanzo di cavalleria al mondo di Rabelais, fino alle linee centrali di sviluppo del romanzo moderno. Il continuo scambio di energie critiche fra teoria e storia genera una messe straordinaria di interpretazioni, proposte, intuizioni, sorrette da una metodologia rigorosa e animate da un pensiero innovatore. Oltre che come una teoria del romanzo il libro può essere letto come espressione di una filosofia <<dialogica>> profondamente libera e sovvertitrice. Non ultima sorpresa è la figura stessa dell'autore quale si disegna attraverso tutto il suo lavoro, che per quasi mezzo secolo fu svolto con straordinaria tenacia, nell'oscurità e spesso nell'ostilità: la figura esemplare di uno spirito indipendente e creativo, le cui idee oggi sono considerate come precorritrici della semiotica, ma di cui forse sarebbe meglio rispettare la singolare originalità fuori da ogni incasellamento classificatorio, nell'orizzonte delle moderne <<scienze della cultura>>

L'opera di Rabelais e la cultura popolare : riso, carnevale e festa nella tradizione medievale e rinascimentale by M. M Bakhtin( Book )

20 editions published between 1979 and 2012 in Italian and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In questo studio pionieristico e profondamente innovativo l'interpretazione dell'opera di Rabelais consente a Bachtin di far luce sulle fonti e sull'evoluzione della cultura popolare: Gargantua et Pantagruel diventa <<la chiave per esplorare gli splendidi santuari dell'arte comica popolare>> del Medioevo e del Rinascimento. Obiettivo primario di quest'indagine è di comprendere la lingua delle forme e dei simboli carnevaleschi, quella appunto di cui si serve Rabelais. Definendo <<realismo grottesco>> il sistema di immagini della cultura comica popolare, Bachtin nota come in esso l' elemento <<basso>>, materiale e corporeo, costituisca un principio profondamente positivo. Egli mette cosí a confronto il canone grottesco e quello classico di rappresentazione del corpo, soffermandosi sul primo non per sostenerne la priorità, ma perché essa ha determinato la concezione figurativa della cultura comica e popolare
