Dr. Legg's book adopts a semiotic approach in order to understand culture and society as a theatrical category and the way it functions as a dialogic discourse in the film Le Bal, also known as "O'Baille", directed by Ettore Scola.

Reviews

"Throughout the book, we discuss Mikhail Bakhtin's concept of dialogism as an interrogation of sociological and cultural dissonances bordering trans-disciplinary studies of psychoanalysis, analytical philosophy, and theoretical poetics. Further, Bakhtin's understanding of 'Time and Space', 'Self and Other', multiplicity of the human 'I' (Self) on various components - both social and psychological at the same time - will be explored."
