R. Bracht Branham

  • Analyses the work of Russian philosopher Mikhail Bakhtin (1895-1975) on the history of the novel alongside one of the most elusive works of classical antiquity: Petronius' Satyrica
  • Advances a cohesive argument in four stages supporting Bakhtin's assertion of the Satyrica's importance in the history of the novel, with each chapter premised on those that precede it
  • Reflects a decades-long engagement with Bakhtin and Petronius by a leading scholar in the field
