Bakhtin and the Nation (Google eBook)
Bucknell University Press, 2000 - Literary Collections - 194 pages
The essays in this volume give the reader an inquiry into the problem of the Nation with, and sometimes surpassing, the help of Bakhtin. The substantial introduction and ten essays work with and beyond the communication theory of Bakhtin and approach Nation in terms both literary and political. The book is equally a contribution to Nation Studies and Bakhtin Studies, with extensive argumentation and current bibliographies on both elements of the title.
