9780099224914: A Roland Barthes Reader

'At last, with A Barthes Reader, we have a sort of Michelin guide to one of the most beguiling minds of our era. Smartly introduced by Susan Sontag, the Reader samples Barthes' achievement over three decades' - Newsweek

A selection of works by the French intellectual Roland Barthes, including seminal essays, such as 'Introduction to the Structural Analysis of Narratives' as well as his more unusual works, such as 'The World of Wrestling'.

'Susan Sontag makes a convincing argument for Barthes the Great Writer... What is new about Barthes' posthumous reputation is the view of him as a writer whose books of criticism and personal musing must be admired as serious and beautiful works of the imagination' - New York Times Book Review

Review:

"To read through A Barthes Reader is finally to be left with the image of Barthes as one of the great public teachers of our time, someone who thought out, argued for, and made available several steps in a penetrating reflection on language, sign systems, texts - and what they have to tell us about the concept of the human" ( New Republic)

"Susan Sontag contributes an informative introduction to this collection and arranges his greatest hits chronologically... This is an excellent entree to a thinker whose precepts have often filtered down into mass culture" ( Glasgow Herald)

Book Description:

An excellent introduction to the intellectual Roland Barthes, whose distinctive philosophy incorporates art, literature and diverse aspects of mainstream culture.
