Images of the Other in Literary Communication

  • This volume should be taken as a snapshot: it reflects a definite state of literary theoretical or historical thinking, a specific range of literary scholars, and particular visions of the concept of "the Other". Also, it dives some information of how a Hungarian scholar feels to call his or her Bulgarian colleague into discussion, and vica versa; that is, what the intercultural dimensions of the discourse on literary theoretical issues are. (To address "the Other"...)

    What images of Hungarian and Bulgarian literary theory do the articles in this book contain? I think that these are images of characters in the "story" of literary theory, and not voices from the outside (from the "other side"), with the self-confidence to search for original solutions, to propose constructions, build up over the national background of literary theory, which is also a strategy of the articles in this volume - namely, collision of languages, experiments with the models of our experience, creation of new connection between theoretical views and so on.
