Bakhtin – The Prehistory of Novelistic Discourse

The first part is an introduction to novelistic discourse; Bakhtin introduces the five stylistic approaches to novelistic discourse and differentiates the novel from other forms of writing.

The penultimate section of the essay focuses ancient Greek literature and stories, specifically parody sonnets, and acknowledges its impact on the current discourse in novels. In addition, the second portion of the essay incorporates the idea of polyglossia—the coexistence of multiple languages in the same area—to illustrate the challenges of construction a common vernacular within literature.

However, the history of language and verbal discourse has the power to change meaning.

While polyglossia complicated the novelistic discourse and how texts were read, the Bible remains the one text read and interpreted by many. The word hybrid is used repetitively in the essay to describe a crossbreeding of ideas. While both imply irony and imitation, parody is a composition of satire.

The marriage of languages to produce a comical style and influential discourse should be problematic.

Crossing languages would cause confusion and misinterpretation, but instead it enhanced the history of novelistic discourse. You are commenting using your WordPress.
