Product description

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)

"Barthes's work, along with that of Wilde and Valéry, gives being an aesthete a good name... Defending the senses, he never betrayed the mind" (Susan Sontag)

Book Description

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