Camera lucida : reflections on photography by Roland Barthes( Book )

"Examining the themes of presence and absence, the relationship between photography and theatre, history and death, these 'reflections on photography' begin as an investigation into the nature of photographs. Then, as Barthes contemplates a photograph of his mother as a child, the book becomes an exposition of his own mind."--Alibris
The pleasure of the text by Roland Barthes( Book )
161 editions published between 1973 and 2014 in 17 languages and held by 2,553 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"What is it that we do when we enjoy a text? What is the pleasure of reading? The French critic and theorist Roland Barthes's answers to these questions constitute "perhaps for the first time in the history of criticism ... not only a poetics of reading ... but a much more difficult achievement, an erotics of reading ... Like filings which gather to form a figure in a magnetic field, the parts and pieces here do come together, determined to affirm the pleasure we must take in our reading as against the indifference of (mere) knowledge."--Richard Howard
Criticism and truth by Roland Barthes( Book )
76 editions published between 1966 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 2,547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Roland Barthes (1915-1980) was a major French writer, literary theorist and critic of French culture and society. His classic works include Mythologies and Camera Lucida . Criticism and Truth is a brilliant discussion of the language of literary criticism and a key work in the Barthes canon. It is a cultural, linguistic and intellectual challenge to those who believe in the clarity, flexibility and neutrality of language, couched in Barthes' own inimitable and provocative style
S/Z by Roland Barthes( Book )
156 editions published between 1970 and 2012 in 14 languages and held by 2,299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
L'auteur analyse le court récit, Sarrasine, de Balzac. Sa méthode d'analyse découpe le texte en 'lexies', des fragments dégagés de la structure narrative, de grammaire. L'auteur constate que cette façon d'analyser un récit donne au lecteur une interprétation plurielle, sans contraintes, où les réseaux sont multiples et jouent entre eux. Le texte devient une galaxie de signifiants, non une structure de signifiés

120 editions published between 1964 and 2010 in 9 languages and held by 2,221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ces articles écrits entre 1954 et 1963, publiés en 1964, portent sur le monde-objet, la littérature objective ou littérale, littérature et méta-langage, littérature et discontinu, littérature et signification, l'imagination du signe, l'activité structuraliste, etc. Deux articles portent sur la critique; l'un s'interroge sur sa nature et l'autre "épingle" la critique universitaire. Principaux auteurs abordés: Brecht, Kafka, Queneau, Robbe-Grillet, Michelet, Racine, etc. Dans un avant-propos, rédigé en 1971, Barthes a bien précisé les trois axes de sa pensée au cours de la période 1954-1964: l'analyse littéraire, la science sémiologique, et la théorie brechtienne de l'art. Le présent recueil est donc "polysémique": il reflète ces trois orientations

Sade, Fourier, Loyola by Roland Barthes( Book )
75 editions published between 1970 and 2010 in 10 languages and held by 1,559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In Sade/Fourier/Loyola, eminent literary theorist Roland Barthes offers a treatise on the nature of philosophical creation. Barthes examines the parallel enterprises of his three subjects as logothetes, or founders of languages: Sade, the language of erotic freedom; Fourier, the language of social perfection and happiness; and Loyola, the language of divine address. Each of these is an all-enveloping system, a "secondary language" that isolates the adherent from the conventional world. His object, Barthes makes clear, is not to decipher the content of their respective works, but to consider Sade, Fourier, and Loyola as creators of text."--Jacket

Elements of semiology by Roland Barthes( Book )
50 editions published between 1964 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 1,219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Roland Barthes, the West's master critic, has given us fertile rereading of such classic French authors as Racine and Balzac, brought to attention lesser-known writers like Fourier and Loyola, studied the mythologies and sign systems of modern life and fashion, explored cinema and music, examined culture-as-system in Japan, tried to delineate the erotics of reading and writing, and touched provocatively on numerous other topics. What he shares with the best of his colleagues is the assumption that criticism is an attitude, not an act. He brings his readers questions and speculations that are always engaging and expansive. It is just this temperament that makes him the latest heir of the tradition of French moralistes--Montaigne, Diderot, Voltaire, and, in his own day, Gide and Sartre--who used their cultural conscience and experimental brilliance to synthesize intellectual, ethical, and literary concerns."--Jacob Stockinger, San Francisco Review of Books

Writing degree zero by Roland Barthes( Book )
25 editions published between 1953 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 925 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Is there any such thing as revolutionary literature? Can literature, in fact, be political at all? These are the questions Roland Barthes addresses in Writing Degree Zero, his first published book and a landmark in his oeuvre. The debate had engaged the European literary community since the 1930s; with this fierce manifesto, Barthes challenged the notion of literature's obligation to be socially committed. Yes, Barthes allows, the writer has a political and ethical responsibility. But the history of French literature shows that the writer has often failed to meet it--and from Barthes's perspective, literature is committed to little more than the myth of itself. Expert and uncompromising, Writing Degree Zero introduced the themes that would soon establish Barthes as one of the leading voices in literary criticism."--Page 4 of cover
