Abstract

The article aims to show how Bakhtin's philosophy of dialogism, and particularly his idea of creative understanding, explains the role of fiction in the wide domain of discourses pertaining to aging and old age. It outlines the stages of creative understanding and then explores how this concept is manifested in Doris Lessing's novel The Diary of aGood Neighbour; how the author's creative understanding is encoded inher treatment of the topic and the relationship between the main characters, one old and one middle-aged woman. The dialogic activity of creative understanding of old people is then set in contrast to ageism, which is seen as its opposite, an expression for what Bakhtin termed amonologic, or 'single-voiced' view.
