Ben Jonson has often been accused of needless erudition and of a morose refusal to join in the festive spirit

Ben Jonson has often been accused of needless erudition and of a morose refusal to join in the festive spirit. Further aggravation has come from the application of Bakhtin's theory of carnival, especially in its posthumous form as a political allegory portraying the clash of high and low cultures. In an attempt to turn the tables on this tradition, Jonson Versus Bakhtin goes back to the sources, arguing that Jonson's theatre allows for an original interpretation of the grotesque as a formal culture of antithesis and opposition that includes carnival.

This volume presents a contrastive study of the overlapping careers of Shakespeare and Caravaggio through the comparison of their strikingly similar conventional belief in symbol and the centrality of the subject, only to gradually open it up in an exaltation of multiplicity and the indistinct regard (Othello).

The grotesque body is a concept, or literary trope, put forward by Russian literary critic Mikhail Bakhtin in his study of François Rabelais' work. The essential principle of grotesque realism is degradation, the lowering of all that is abstract, spiritual, noble, and ideal to the material level. Through the use of the grotesque body in his novels, Rabelais related political conflicts to human anatomy. In this way, Rabelais used the concept as "a figure of unruly biological and social exchange".

Bakhtin studied medieval carnival culture through the works of French writer François Rabelais, unveiling a world predicated on the inversion of the ‘high’ and the ‘low’, on satire, transgressing boundaries and shape-shifting

Bakhtin studied medieval carnival culture through the works of French writer François Rabelais, unveiling a world predicated on the inversion of the ‘high’ and the ‘low’, on satire, transgressing boundaries and shape-shifting. Granata’s interest, however, lies in one particular aspect of Bakhtin’s frame- work – the grotesque body. by Jana Melkumova-Reynolds.

In this article, I consider aesthetic experience based around literary texts in the light of the deployment of ideas derived from Bakhtin and Bourdieu. In so doing, Carnival will act as an ‘illuminatory’ context in which I can plant a discussion which teases out the relationship between individual aesthetic experience and the social world in which it is instantiated. 41e congrès de la SFLGC, Migrations des genres et des formes artistiques , Université Toulouse-Jean Jaurès, Toulouse, 11-13 octobre 2017). by Hélène Martinelli.

Ben Jonson has often been accused of needless erudition and of a morose refusal to join in the festive spirit. Further aggravation has come from the application of Bakhtin's theory of carnival, especially in its posthumous form as a political allegory portraying the clash of high and low cultures. In an attempt to turn the tables on this tradition, Jonson Versus Bakhtin goes back to the sources, arguing that Jonson's theatre allows for an original interpretation of the grotesque as a formal culture of antithesis and opposition that includes carnival. A robust observer of popular myths of festive liberation by way of a uniquely compendious adaptation of his sources, Jonson's grotesque uncannily delves deep into the Renaissance theory of the coincidence of opposites as a way of envisaging virtue and other concepts of the mind, rather than serving up a pompous application of moral precepts or offering a political arena for ritual transgression. While richly based on an appropriate repertory of underlying sources, Jonson Versus Bakhtin steers away from any tiresome reference hunting mania, appealing to a broader audience interested in re-appraising Ben Jonson's genius for richly contrastive imagery, as well as re-considering the relevance of Bakhtin's theory to Elizabethan and Jacobean drama and to the Renaissance culture of the grotesque.
