More About the Author

Roland Barthes was born in 1915 and studied French literature and classics at the University of Paris. After teaching French at universities in Rumania and Egypt, he joined the Centre National de Recherche Scientifique, where he devoted himself to research in sociology and lexicology. He was a professor at the College de France until his death in 1980.

Product Description

From the Back Cover

ESSAYS SELECTED AND TRANSLATED BY STEPHEN HEATH

'Image-Music-Text' brings together major essays by Roland Barthes on the structural analysis of narrative and on issues in literary theory, on the semiotics of photograph and film, on the practice of music and voice.

Throughout the volume runs a constant movement 'from work to text': an attention to the very ‘grain’ of signifying activity and the desire to follow – in literature, image, film, song and theatre – whatever turns, displaces, shifts, disperses.

Stephen Heath, whose translation has been described as “skilful and readable” (TLS) and “quite brilliant” (TES), is the author of 'Vertige du déplacement', a study of Barthes. His selection of essays, each important in its own right, also serves as “the best…introduction so far to Barthes’ career as the slayer of contemporary myths” (JOHN STURROCK, 'New Statesman).'

5.0 out of 5 stars Theory heaven 7 Aug 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you're looking for solid theory on advertising, the media, photography, and literature then you've come to the right theorist. Roland Barthes work is approachable in a way that Derrida and Foucault just isn't - or maybe that's just me.
'Image, Music, Text' is a collection of Barthes essays covering everything from the photographic message, to the rhetoric of the image, and his famous essay the Death of the Author. If you need to write an academic essay or paper on pretty much any area of contemporary culture then this book is invaluable.
Now I'd better get back to writing my theoretic framework for my PhD....

4.0 out of 5 stars text analysis 28 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
good essays, authoritative, quite technical and deals with linguistics comprehensively. Connecting image, music and text academically is what to expect here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 22 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for academic purposes and now will use it as a reference tool often for research.

Would recommend this to anyone working in qualitative research, especially narrative, photo-elicitation, film and images. a brilliant selection of essays, wouldn't expect anything less from Barthes.
