  • ...Bakhtin recalls the particular status of the speaker in question. She or he is referred to a s the constituative element of the enunciation, and therefore of the utterance; we also speak of the image of the author that can be deduced from the utterance and as result, we have a tendency to project onto the first. The author produces the entire utterance, and that includes, 'the image of the author'; but he he, himself is the producer and not the product, natura naturans, not natura naturata" (p. 52)
