Bakhtin, Stalin, and Modern Russian Fiction presents an advanced introduction to the work of the Russian theorist Mikhail Bakhtin, focusing on the concepts of carnival, dialogism, and historicism. The discussion of Bakhtin pays particular attention to the impact of his historical context in the Soviet Union and to the importance of his own dialogic mode of discourse. Bakhtin's ideas are then placed in dialogic relation to the works of several important writers of modern Russian fiction, including Vassily Aksyonov, Ilf and Petrov, Mikhail Zoshchenko, Yuz Aleshkovsky, Andrei Bitov, and Sasha Sokolov.

?In this important book Booker and Juraga challenge the irony of Bakhtin's critical legacy. The authors cast a new light on the fact that Bakhtin is largely misunderstood in the West: they explain that Bakhtin's ideas have evolved in the historical context of Russia. General and academic audiences, upper-division undergraduate and above.?-Choice
