Abstract

The concluding chapter considers how Bakhtin’s intertwined notions of dialogism, the chronotope, heteroglossia, polyglossia, the carnivalesque, and polyphony disrupt the idea of any finalized utterance. At the same time, his theories offer a way of classifying and illuminating the restless revoicings of various filmmakers who continue to retell Shakespeare in distinctly new, yet strangely familiar ways.
