Chapter 5: Literature and Linguistics

I. Structuralism and Post-structuralism, Including Deconstruction

A. Structuralism: Contexts and Definitions

  • Structuralists identify structures, systems of relationships, which endow signs (words) with meanings

B. The Linguistic Model

  • Saussurean linguistics: la langue, la parole, semiotics, syntagmatic reading; Jakobson, communicative functions
chapter 5
Chapter 5

C. Russian Formalism: Extending Saussure

  • Moscow scholars after World War I: Propp (folktales), Shklovsky (poetry as defamiliarization); narrative = story + plot

D. Structuralism, Lévi-Strauss, and Semiotics

  • Structural anthropology: all societies have complex structures; paradigmatic approach to “deep structures” of culture and myth
chapter 51
Chapter 5

E. French Structuralism: Coding and Decoding

  • French structuralists Barthes, Derrida, Foucault, Todorov all used Saussure to read complex texts (Proust, Balzac)
  • Narrative analogous to sentence—syntagmatic reading; cf Russian Formalists on story and plot (histoire and discours)
  • Text is message to be understood by a code; Barthes’s codes: actions (proairetic), puzzles (hermeneutic), cultural, connotative, symbolic

F. British and American Interpreters

  • Culler: seeks to expand the poetics of structuralism
chapter 52
Chapter 5

G. Post-Structuralism, Deconstruction

  • Influenced by Barthes’s structuralism
  • texts subversively undermine their meaning just as language is constant free play and deferred meaning, with broad referentiality
  • Derrida: difference, philosophical skepticism; meaning reveals contradictory structures within
chapter 53
Chapter 5

II. Dialogics

  • Bakhtin’s dialogics expresses the inherent addressivity of all language especially as it appears in the polyphonic novel
  • Carnivalization
  • Marxist and Christian influences
  • Role of the grotesque
  • A subject is not an object of address but a dialogic partner; heteroglossia
  • Mae Gwendolyn Henderson
