Subject:        Shakespeare/Bakhtin : Bakhtin/Shakespeare

Dear All

I am wondering whether anyone on the list can direct me to writing about
Shakespeare that might be considered 'carnivalised' (in a Bakhtinian
sort of a way)?

Simon Dentith (citing Terry Eagleton) in _Bakhtinian Thought_ seems to
offer the opinion that, whilst academics might embrace Bakhtin in a
theoretical way, they may not welcome the *practice* of 'carnivalised'
writing because of the loss of authority it might entail.  Is there any
evidence that this notion can be refuted -- and that the
interpenetration of form and content are being explored by way of
carnivalised writing about Shakespeare?
