5.0 out of 5 stars Friendly and insightful introduction, 21 May 2004
By A Customer
Bruce Lincoln's analysis of Allstar wrestling had me interested in Barthes - and Culler's introduction has enticed me even further into Barthes multifarious oevre. Culler divides his introduction according to the thematics of Barthes' works - as he says, Barthes is a man of parts - literary historian, mythologist, critic, polemicist, semiologist, structuralist, hedonist etc.
I am glad to have read an introduction that appreciates the many aspects of Barthes' writing. Culler has me well prepared before reading Barthes himself.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who is thinking of studying Barthes.

Found this book very helpful. I am doing an MA in Eng Lit and it has been over 13 years since my BA so this formed a great reminder for me.
