Explores and illuminates the impact of the Russian philosopher Mikhail Bakhtin on our understanding of literary modernism.

This volume explores the subject of modernism as seen through the lens of Bakhtinian criticism and in doing so offers a rounded and up-to-date example of the application of Bakhtinian theory to a field of research. The contributors consider the global spread of modernism and the variety of its manifestations as well as modernism's relationship to popular culture and its collective elaboration, which are dominant concerns in Bakhtin's thinking.

As with other volumes in the Understanding Philosophy, Understanding Modernism series, the volume is divided into three parts. Part 1 provides readings of Bakhtin's work in the context of literary modernism. Part 2 features case studies of modernist art and artists and their relation to Bakhtinian theory. The final part provides a glossary of key terms in Bakhtin's work.

«A very timely and helpful volume by an impressive range of scholars, which clarifies Bakhtin's relationship to modernity and to modernist literature as well as making connections with some of the most prominent European thinkers on the issue. The inclusion of a glossary of some of Bakhtin's key terminology provides an excellent resource for those seeking to make sense of this influential thinker without falling prey to the many misconceptions that have commonly dogged critical work in the field.»
