QuestionsThe Bakhtinian Chronotope (Time/Space Relativity) & Bakhtin and the Dialogic Imagination

5 reasons to see chronotope comparisons
1. time and space are intrinsically interconnected
2. a variety of senses of time and space
3. different aspects or orders of the universe cannot be supposed to operate with the same chronotope
4. chronotopes change over time in response to current needs; they are historical and they compete with each other; they may be dialogic
5. chronotpes are not so much visibly present in activity as they are the ground for activity The Chronotope
TIME in Film
In Dramlit we talk about historical time, but theatre works with the subjective (dramatic time), when we fully identified ourselves with the heroes on stage. This is special transition from objective time (chronological) to unique (for each performance) "emotional" time and space. Great playwrights organized their script, according to their sensitivity and always present very definite construction of the dramatic time dimession (see in main directory Chekhov pages, for example).
Not only the chronotope by Chekhov is different from the one in Williams; The Cherry Orchard time-space organization is different from The Three Sisters. More, Masha's time is different from Olga's and so on. -- this is how we realise the differences (expressed in language, rhythm, pauses and etc.)...
