Dialogue of Voices by Karen Hohne
Book DescriptionThe work of the Russian theorist Mikhail Bakhtin, particularly his notions of dialogics and genre, has had a substantial impact on contemporary critical practices. Until now, however, little attention has been paid to the possibilities and challenges Bakhtin presents to feminist theory, and this task is taken up in "A Dialogue of Voices". The original essays in this book combine feminism and Bakhtin by interpreting texts through these two perspectives, to arrive at new theoretical approaches. Together, these essays point to a direction for feminist theory that originates in Bakhtin - one that would lead to a feminine "etre" rather than a feminine "ecriture". Focusing on feminist theorists such as Helene Cixous, Teresa de Lauretis, Julia Kristeva and Monique Wittig, in conjunction with Bakhtin's concepts of dialogism, heteroglossia and chronotope, the authors offer close readings of texts from a wide range of "multicultural" genres: nature writing; sermon composition; 19th-century British women's fiction; contemporary memoirs; Irish and French lyric poetry; 19th-century African-American autobiography; Latin-American film; and contemporary Chinese prose. The result is a dialogue in which authors of both sexes, from several countries and different eras, speak against, for, and with one another in ways that reveal their works anew, as well as the critical matrices surrounding them.
