Pegged on the concept of "otherness," Bakhtin's principle of
dialogue highlights the differential relation between a center and
all that is not the center. Bakhtinian thought centers on the
dialogue between the "self" and the "other." Bakhtin argues that
any notion acquires meaning only in dialogue with another notion.
However, the "self" in Bakhtin's notion is not a self-sufficient
construct by itself. The "self" gains meaning/existence only in its
relation with the "other." "Zadie Smith's The Autograph Man: A
Dialogic Perspective" attempts to probe into the novel under study
as a dialogic narrative viewing it as a dialogue between the "self"
and the "other," which constitutes the Jewish and the Goyish voices
in the novel. Besides, the novel also proves itself as a dialogue
between the Author, Hero and the Reader.
