The Society for the Appreciation of the Post-Dialogic Novel


Dedicated to Furthering the cause of those examples in the Path of Pynchon's Gravity's Rainbow, Gaddis's JR, McCarthy's Blood Meridian, DeLillo's Libra, and Wallace's Infinite Jest. Look here for Links and News of the latest emanations.

Announcement:  The Society has unanimously voted to become happily subsumed under a newly developed think tank We are herefore to be found at this link:

Post-Dialogic in the sense that a category of gnosis has been formed not by evolution from the dialogic as described by Bakhtin ("constructed not as the whole of a single consciousness, absorbing other consciousnesses as objects into itself, but as a whole formed by the interaction of several consciousnesses, none of which entirely becomes an object for the other") but by the present era of novel studies being simply post- that critical distinction, and hence in perpetual debt to Bakhtin; and for further elucidation, please read:
