Personalism as Poetics: the World of Fiction through Its Inhabitants' Eyes / Personalizm kak poetika. Literaturnyj mir glazami ego obitatelej

Olga Meerson. Personalism as Poetics: the World of Fiction through Its Inhabitants’ Eyes / Personalizm kak poetika. Literaturnyj mir glazami ego obitatelej. St. Petersburg, Russia: Pushkinskij dom, 2009.

The book contains various chapters exploring fictional characters and narrators not as objects of authorial description but rather as subjects with their own vision of the described events or other characters. The book carries the ideas of Mikhail Bakhtin to new levels, seeing a structural pattern in letting the characters in fiction "run the show". It is constructing their vision, not themselves as objects of the author's description, that allows the examined authors to create their poetic worlds, with inherent values or even whole worldviews.
