Bakhtin and the Social Moorings of Poetry
Mikhail M. Bakhtin (1895-1975) is very likely the most influential theorist of human communication in the past century. Bakhtin is also one of our best defenders of the novel as a literary form. His strong reservation about the single voice of lyric poetry, by comparison with the polyphonic novel, cannot be denied. But his reasons for thinking this can be explained, and his own productive terms (utterance, dialogue, heteroglossia) cann be used to reach a more accurate account of the social moorings of poetry.
