Summary/Abstract: The article is concerned with dialogical approaches in the works of Richard Weiner (1884–1937), which the author considers a constitutive feature of Weiner’s fiction. Similarly it considers dialogues between the implied author and the authorial narrator (whose voices, however, often overlap) on the one hand, and the reader and the characters on the other hand, and two-way dialogues between the real world and the fictional world. The author demonstrates that a characteristic feature of Weiner’s fiction, dialogicality, is not a self-serving figure of speech of Weiner’s style, but a means of enabling the reader to become actively involved in the creation of the fictional world.
