Example text

6 Bakhtin and his Others author is able to create a signifying form of a person, his world and his story, by contemplating the hero and his life from an aesthetic distance. Bakhtin argues extensively why it is impossible for a character to create an encompassing form for him- or herself: he or she, being part of the world, is constantly involved in making decisions and performing actions, each of which changes what he or she actually ‘is’. Only someone contemplating his or her life from an aesthetic distance is able to bestow upon him or her a ‘finalized’ or ‘consummated’ form (Bakhtin 1990b).

Laughter expresses an anti-authoritarian attitude to life. According to Bakhtin, Rabelais articulated an aesthetic which celebrates the grotesque, body-based aspects of popular culture, and turned this against the solemnity and humourlessness of official culture (Bakhtin 1968, passim). In very general terms, it can be argued that the element of popular laughter in Rabelais’ work also represents a twofold understanding of the novel: it brings forward the popular, folkloric element in the history of the novel genre and, secondly, it conveys the idea of the possibility of action, through the medium of the novel, against the oppression emanating from official power.
