About the Author

Vadim Liapunov is an associate professor of Slavic languages and literatures at Indiana University.


"Bakhtin's early essays are essential for a full understanding of his philosophy and the premises of his literary criticism. We have waited a long time for this volume and it turns out to be worth the wait. The translations have been thoughtfully and carefully done and the translators are to be congratulated on providing fluent English translations of what are some of the most difficult, though also most rewarding of the Bakhtinian texts." * Slavonic And East European Review *
