A: Mikhail Bakhtin. We define dialogic in opposition to monologic.
Q: You talk in riddles.
A: Not at all. I’m drawing on literary theory to explain media theory. A monologue is a soliloquy. There is only one direction. A monologist monopolizes. Bakhtin identified dialogic literature as being that which is in communication with other works. It goes in two directions; past literatures are altered by present ones.
