Speech genres and other late essays by M. M Bakhtin( Book )

44 editions published between 1986 and 2010 in English and held by 925 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
Problems of Dostoevsky's poetics by M. M Bakhtin( Book )

31 editions published between 1984 and 2009 in English and held by 813 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
The life of Musorgsky by Caryl Emerson( Book )

19 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 786 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Modest Musorgsky is Russia's greatest musical dramatist. When he died in 1881 in St. Petersburg at the age of forty-two, in poverty and relative obscurity, he was known for a single opera, Boris Godunov, and a handful of eccentric "realistic" songs." "In this brief biography, Caryl Emerson amends many of the canonical interpretations of Musorgsky as "victim," "martyr," and "savage genius." If his life was tragic, it is not only because he was misunderstood but also because he was impoverished: by the Emancipation of the serfs, by the loss of his parents and by loneliness, by his impracticality and his addictions. These very deprivations were instrumental in shaping his vision and the book emphasizes the psychological and socioeconomic factors that contributed to the composer's remarkable autodidactic rise and tragic, premature end."--Jacket

The first hundred years of Mikhail Bakhtin by Caryl Emerson( Book )

18 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and held by 684 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A foremost Bakhtin authority, Caryl Emerson mines extensive Russian sources to explore Bakhtin's reception in Russia, from his earliest publication in 1929 until his death, and his posthumous rediscovery. After a reception-history of Bakhtin's published work, she examines the role of his ideas in the post-Stalinist revival of the Russian literary profession, concentrating on the most provocative rethinkings of three major concepts in his world: dialogue and polyphony; carnival; and "outsideness," a position Bakhtin considered essential to both ethics and aesthetics. Finally, she speculates on the future of Bakhtin's method, which was much more than a tool of criticism: it will "tell you how to teach, write, live, talk, think."

All the same the words don't go away : essays on authors, heroes, aesthetics, and stage adaptations from the Russian tradition by Caryl Emerson( Book )

9 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All the Same the Words Don't Go Away brings together twenty-five years of essays and reviews, linked loosely by three themes. First is the creative potential inherent in transposing classic literary texts into other genres or media (operatic, dramatic) and the responsibilities, if any, that govern the transposer, audience, and critic. The practice of transposition, however, gives rise to a creative conflict: is there a limit to the amount of ornamentation, pressure, or dilution to which the "mediated" word can be subject? Finally, the more polemical of the essays included here are structured on the Bakhtinian notion of coexisting "plausibilities" and points of view. What a carnival approach can uncover in Pushkin that might have surprised and even pleased the poet, what a libretto or play script brings out that the "true original" hides: here the work of the creator and the critic co-exist in exhilarating ways that respect the competencies of each. --Book Jacket
The dialogic imagination : four essays by M. M Bakhtin( Book )

33 editions published between 1981 and 2014 in English and held by 86 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

Russian literature and empire : conquest of the Caucasus from Pushkin to Tolstoy by Susan Layton( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first book to provide a synthesizing study of Russian writing about the Caucasus during the nineteenth-century age of empire-building. From Pushkin's ambivalent portrayal of an alpine Circassia to Tolstoy's condemnation of tsarist aggression against Muslim tribes in Hadji Murat, the literary analysis is firmly set in its historical context, and the responses of the Russian readership to receive extensive attention. As well as exploring literature as such, Susan Layton introduces material from travelogues, oriental studies, ethnography, memoirs, and the utterances of tsarist officials and military commanders. While showing how literature often underwrote imperialism, the book carefully explores the tensions between the Russian state's ideology of a European mission to civilize the Muslim mountain peoples, and romantic perceptions of those tribes as noble primitives whose extermination was no cause for celebration
