Speech Genres and Other Late Essays presents six short works from Bakhtin's Esthetics of Creative Discourse, published in Moscow in 1979. This is the last of Bakhtin's extant manuscripts published in the Soviet Union. All but one of these essays (the one on the Bildungsroman) were written in Bakhtin's later years and thus they bear the stamp of a thinker who has accumulated a huge storehouse of factual material, to which he has devoted a lifetime of analysis, reflection, and reconsideration.
Offers a fundamental rethinking of the rhetorical tradition as dialogue.
Journal for the Evangelical Study of the Old Testament (JESOT) is a peer-reviewed journal devoted to the academic and evangelical study of the Old Testament. The journal seeks to fill a need in academia by providing a venue for high-level scholarship on the Old Testament from an evangelical standpoint. The journal is not affiliated with any particular academic institution, and with an international editorial board, open access format, and multi-language submissions, JESOT cultivates and promotes Old Testament scholarship in the evangelical global community. The journal differs from many evangelical journals in that it seeks to publish current academic research in the areas of ancient Near Eastern backgrounds, Dead Sea Scrolls, Rabbinics, Linguistics, Septuagint, Research Methodology, Literary Analysis, Exegesis, Text Criticism, and Theology as they pertain only to the Old Testament. JESOT also includes up-to-date book reviews on various academic studies of the Old Testament.
In Read Him Again and Again, Andrew Zack Lewis explores the reception history of the book of Job and the hermeneutical presuppositions of its interpreters. He pays special attention to the interpretations of Soren Kierkegaard (in his "Upbuilding Discourse" on Job 1:21 and his philosophical novella Repetition), Wilhelm Vischer (in his essay "Hiob, ein Zeuge Jesu Christi"), and Karl Barth (in Church Dogmatics IV.3.1). In looking at Job in these works Lewis examines how each of the thinkers' contexts influence their writings and their understanding of Job. Read Him Again and Again begins with a discussion on the importance of reception history in biblical studies by walking through Mikhail Bakhtin's theories on great time and the chronotope. Great texts, Bakhtin argues, continue to live and grow even after their completion and canonization, expanding in meaning as more readers participate in their interpretations. This is certainly true of the book of Job and Read Him Again and Again shows not only how Kierkegaard, Vischer, and Barth read Job, but also how they inherit the Job of their predecessors in the Christian tradition, maintaining features of earlier allegorical interpretive strategies while remaining firmly established in the critical era.
"This book studies in detail the complexities of these conflicting aspects of Petrarchism as they are boldly juxtaposed in moments of recantation, or palinode. Manipulations of recantatory gestures in the poems of Petrarch, Gaspara Stampa, Sir Philip Sidney, and Edmund Spenser are especially succinct points of focus for considerations of these authors' more general relationships to and revisions of both Petrarchism and the cultural climates in which they wrote. Because they involve questions of confessions and autobiography, ethics and aesthetics, the concerns of the palinode are aligned with those of the Petrarchan lyric, and also engage larger cultural discourses surrounding the lyric poem that would demand recantation. Given the recantation's role of mediating between the poetic work and the world beyond, critical categories such as "monologic" and "dialogic," derived from the works of M. M. Bakhtin, are suitable tools for an examination of the Petrarchan lyric and its recantation, while at the same time, the nature and value of these critical concepts are interrogated." "Because both classical and medieval recantatory traditions inform the Petrarchans' usages of the genre, special focus is placed upon the originary Greek recantation, Stesichorus of Himera's palinode to his Helen, and its recovery in the Renaissance (within the context of Plato's "youthful" poetic work, the Phaedrus). Stesichorus's palinode is particularly revealing when viewed in relation to Renaissance Petrarchism because of its association of the discursive and formal dualities inherent in the genre with its female addressee, Helen. Helen's resurrections in the Petrarchan ladies (and writers) of the later period provide rich variations on Stesichorus's ventriloquistic recantation and its treatment of gender relationships. Like the palinode itself, its emblematic figure, Helen, mediates between the poet's self-expression, the literary tradition in which he or she works, and voices of culture in the world beyond."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Taking its point of initiation from the long-standing dialogue between poetry and philosophy concerning their respective claims to contrasting orders of insight, this book tackles issues relating to the differing conditions of knowledge and insights relating to language and thought imparted by ‘modern’ poets and philosophers, from Kant and Wordsworth to Adorno and Hardy. The book draws on recent debates in literary theory and philosophy in order to outline a new ‘dialogic’ approach for conducting comparative criticism and literary history. The poets and the philosophers appear under configurations of reading that produce considerations that are unexpected, yet strangely fitting.
Linking actual instances of language use with structures of social power in francophone Belgium, Gross outlines the history and contemporary configuration of rod puppetry in Liège. The analysis of this working class performance art moves between what occurs on and off stage. As puppeteers speak in other voices, sometimes in Walloon and sometimes in French, they create a sociolinguistic model based on 19th century renditions of medieval texts, the voices of past puppeteers, and the language that surrounds them. The high level of linguistic reflexivity created by the regional language movement has led to frequent metalinguistic and metapragmatic commentaries within the puppet shows. This complex speech genre embedded in social context shows the influence of identity struggles: from local class oppositions to imperial designs abroad. Keeping a tight focus on language, Speaking in Other Voices examines the process of entextualization and recontextualization as stories of war and religion are transmitted to succeeding generations.
