Roland Barthes Reader by Roland Barthes

Book Description

'At last, with A Barthes Reader, we have a sort of Michelin guide to one of the most beguiling minds of our era. Smartly introduced by Susan Sontag, the Reader samples Barthes' achievement over three decades' - Newsweek A selection of works by the French intellectual Roland Barthes, including seminal essays, such as 'Introduction to the Structural Analysis of Narratives' as well as his more unusual works, such as 'The World of Wrestling'. 'Susan Sontag makes a convincing argument for Barthes the Great Writer...What is new about Barthes' posthumous reputation is the view of him as a writer whose books of criticism and personal musing must be admired as serious and beautiful works of the imagination' - New York Times Book Review
