Structuralist poetics : structuralism, linguistics, and the study of literature by Jonathan D Culler( Book )

100 editions published between 1975 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 1,905 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book introduces a new way of studying literature by attempting to create a systematic account of the structure of literary works, rather than studying the meaning of the work. It offers an overview and appraisal of contributions to literary theory of French structuralism and post- structuralism. Culler's new preface answers some of the criticisms leveled at his approach and details how it is still as relevant today as when it was first published
Roland Barthes by Jonathan D Culler( Book )

47 editions published between 1983 and 2008 in 6 languages and held by 1,561 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Roland Barthes (1915-80) was an 'incomparable enlivener of the literary mind' whose lifelong fascination was with 'the way people make their world intelligible'. He has a multifaceted claim to fame: to some he is the structuralist who outlined a 'science of literature', and the most prominent promoter of semiology; to others he stands not for science but pleasure, espousing literature which gives the reader a creative role." "He called for 'the death of the author', urging that we study not writers but texts, yet he himself published idiosyncratic books rightly celebrated as imaginative products of a personal vision." "Jonathan Culler elucidates the varied theoretical contributions of this 'public experimenter' and describes the many projects which Barthes explored."--Jacket

Organized thematically, this four-volume collection explores the key areas of structuralism - and with a new introduction by the editor to guide the reader through the work, this is an essential collection of secondary sources that provides a valuable tool for research. Taking as their methodological model the successes of the structural linguistics inaugurated by Ferdinand de Saussure, a group of thinkers in such fields as anthropology, literary and cultural studies, sociology and philosophy developed ambitious programs for the interdisciplinary study of the systems by which human beings make the world intelligible

Trois essais d'Umberto Eco forment le noyau de ce livre. Il y développe sa conception de l'intention de l'oeuvre et de la façon dont elle peut imposer des limites aux interprétations possibles. R.

Roland Barthes by Andy Stafford( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in French and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couv. indique : "Roland Barthes (1915-1980) a occupé une place éminente dans le milieu de la culture, de la sémiologie et de la critique littéraire. De Mythologies en 1954 à son dernier ouvrage sur la photographie, La chambre claire, il est devenu l'éminence grise d'une avant-garde qui, avec le structuralisme, a radicalement transformé les humanités en général et les lettres en particulier. Comment évaluer aujourd'hui la résonance du sémiologue ? Comment définir le type de penseur ou d'intellectuel qu'était Roland Barthes ? Jonathan Culler présente avec une très grande clarté les traits essentiels de l'invention théorique et du travail critique de Roland Barthes et signe une des meilleures introductions à l'œuvre foisonnante de ce théoricien de la littérature et de la culture."
Narrative discourse : an essay in method by Gérard Genette( Book )

18 editions published between 1980 and 1987 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Genette uses Proust's Remembrance of Things Past as a work to identify and name the basic constituents and techniques of narrative. Genette illustrates the examples by referring to other literary works. His systemic theory of narrative deals with the structure of fiction, including fictional devices that go unnoticed and whose implications fulfill the Western narrative tradition
Interpretation and overinterpretation by Umberto Eco( Book )

11 editions published between 1991 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Umberto Eco, international best-selling novelist and leading literary theorist, here brings together these two roles in a provocative discussion of the vexed question of literary interpretation. The limits of interpretation--what a text can actually be said to mean--are of double interest to a semiotician whose own novels' intriguing complexity has provoked his readers into intense speculation as to their meaning. Eco's illuminating and frequently hilarious discussion
