About the Author

Slav N. Gratchev is associate professor of Spanish at Marshall University. Howard Mancing is professor of Spanish at Purdue University.


The 17 essays in this volume, which also includes an introduction by Gratchev (Marshall Univ.) and Mancing (Purdue Univ.), take as their point of departure the concept of re-accentuation, initially proposed by Mikhail Bakhtin in The Dialogic Imagination (1975; Eng. tr., 1981). The interpretive and analytical openness of key works of prose fiction allow for re-reading and re-imagination in subsequent ages and through different media and approaches. In particular cases, the possibilities seem infinite. A primary example for Bakhtin was Cervantes's Don Quixote and its eponymous protagonist. The present collection is divided into sections on imagery and ideology, literature, film, and theater and television. The great majority of the contributors are academics (in various fields), but one is a professional puppeteer and another a marketing consultant. A special pleasure of this text lies in the diversity of references and juxtapositions: Dore, Dali, Fielding, Unamuno, Borges, Thomas Mann, Waldo Salt, Kathy Acker, Jean-Pierre Jeunet, the Chinese director Ah Gan, Orhan Pamuk, multiple Russian connections, and so on. The essays are intriguing in their range and methodologies, and they become testaments to the afterlife-what Bakhtin termed the "unfinalizability"-of Don Quixote in both public and artistic spheres. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Graduate students, researchers, faculty. * CHOICE *
