The Dialogic Imagination
By M. M. Bakhtin
Edited by Michael Holquist
Translated by Caryl Emerson and Michael Holquist
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.
