Dialogue is a many-sided critical concept, at once an ancient philosophical genre, a formal component of fiction and drama, a model for the relationship of writer and reader, and a theoretical key to the nature of language. In all its forms, it questions 'literature', disturbing the singleness and fixity of the written text with the fluid interactivity of conversation.In this clear and concise guide to the multiple significance of the term, Peter Womack:outlines the history of dialogue form, looking at Platonic, Renaissance, Enlightenment and Modern examples illustrates the play of dialogue in the many 'voices' of the novel, and considers how dialogue works on the stageinterprets the influential dialogic theories of Mikhail Bakhtinexamines the idea that literary study itself consists of a 'dialogue' with the pastpresents a useful glossary and further reading section.Practical and thought-provoking, this volume is the ideal starting-point for the exploration of this diverse and fascinating literary form.
