“Teacher, man of letters, moralist, philospher of culture, connoisseur of strong ideas, protean autobiographer . . . of all the intellectual notables who have emerged since World War II in France, Roland Barthes is the one whose work I am most certain will endure” ―Susan Sontag
“One of the great public teachers of our time, someone who thought out, argued for, and made available serveral steps in a penetrating reflection on language sign systems, texts --and what they have to tell us about the concept of being human” ―Peter Brooks
“With so much new material now included, this volume is not an unabridged reissue so much as a celebration anew.” ―Publishers Weekly
“Barthes was one of the major French critics of the 20th century, and this fuller translation will be of interest to English-speaking students of French and comparative literature as well as to cultural anthropologists.” ―Library Journal
“As this new translation and expansion of a seminal work by the French semiotician and philosopher demonstrates, Barthes remains ahead of his time, and our time, more than 30 years after his death.... It's remarkable that essays written more than a half-century ago, on another continent, should seem not merely pertinent but prescient in regard to the course of contemporary American culture.” ―Kirkus Reviews
Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Roland Barthes was born in 1915. A French literary theorist, philosopher, and critic, he influenced the development of various schools of theory, including structuralism, semiotics, existentialism, social theory, Marxism, and post-structuralism. He died in 1980.
I found the essay and Wine and Milk quite engrossing. Equally intriguing were the ones on The Face of Garbo, Novels and Children, The Writer on Holiday, and Romans in Films. My favorite essay, however, was the one on Wrestling. I am not, nor have I ever been a wrestling fan. Perhaps I felt enlightened when I read the essay, especially when I compared it to wrestling today. Even though Roland Barthes brings up the fact, and acknowledges that French wrestling is different from American wrestling (remember, he's talking about the 50's and 60's), The differences have in my estimation only grown more noticeable. And yet the one thing that remains the same is that WRESTLING IS NOT A SPORT...it is a SPECTACLE. Through this essay I was able to add a new word to my French vocabulary... La Barbaque... meaning stinking meat. A term I wouldn't have associated, before reading Barthes, with wrestling.
