"In "The Rustle of Language, the typically Barthesian texture of the writing makes itself felt. That texture--delightful to many of us--is composed of the mutual jostling of many (often mutually incompatible) registers of discourse. Linguistics, literature, philosophy, . . . history, semantics, Marxism--these are only the commonest of the many categories that organize Barthes' thinking. . . . In all of these essays, the briskness and liveliness of Barthes's style makes the work interesting."--Helen Vendler, "New York Review of BooksAbout the Author:
