This tradition may have been technically mediocre, and it was certainly distorted by Stalinism, but it existed and it has lessons for us. Dialogism refers to a theory, initiated by Mikhail Bakhtin (bahk-TEEN), arguing that in a dialogic work of literature--such as in the writings of Dostoevsky--there is a "polyphonic interplay of various characters' voices ... where no worldview is given superiority over others; neither is that voice which may be identified with the author's necessarily the most engaging or persuasive of all those in the text" (Childers & Hentzi, p. 81).

A sign is a basic unit of meaning—a word, picture, or hand gesture, for instance, that conveys some meaning. Plot: Plots are a series of scenes, typically moving from a conflict situation to a resolution. These two dudes William Wimsatt and Monroe Beardsley are important guys for that. This is why any literary school which opposes an older aesthetic always produces manifestoes in one form or another about 'faithfulness to life'", Boris Tomashevsky, "Thematics" "So, while poetry attempts to convey something beyond what is conveyed in prose rhythms, it remains, all the same, one person talking to another ...

There are those film-makers who prepare their comparatively few moves very slowly and gradually (Ozu, Erice, Dreyer), and there are those who merrily multiply the surprising, table-turning strategies (Lubitsch, Godard, Boris Barnet). Radical feminists feel that there is a male-based authority and power structure and that it is responsible for oppression and inequality, and that as long as the system and its values are in place, society will not be able to be reformed in any significant way.
