MACHADO, Irene. Refractions of Reported Speech as a Discursive Episteme in Verbal Creativity. Bakhtiniana, Rev. Estud. Discurso [online]. 2020, vol.15, n.1, pp.154-179.  Epub Nov 28, 2019. ISSN 2176-4573.

This essay reviews the critical analysis of V.N. Voloshinov with respect to the process of discursive transmission, questioning consecrated studies of stylistic and impressionistic categories. Voloshinov, on discovering ways in which reported speech creates tension in the citation, causing a quasi-direct discourse to emerge, which can be attributed to both the narrator as well as the character, understands he has found another history of discourse that is much more favorable to the manifestation of bivocality as active reaction to the discourse of the other, and as a full manifestation of the ideologeme. We infer, thus, that the problem examined by the theorist establishes a new discursive episteme in dialogic studies.

Keywords : Reported speech; Quasi-direct discourse; Active reaction; Intonation; Ideologeme.
