The pleasure of the text by Roland Barthes( Book )

165 editions published between 1973 and 2014 in 9 languages and held by 2,489 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
S/Z by Roland Barthes( Book )

181 editions published between 1970 and 2012 in 14 languages and held by 2,392 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

"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

Empire of signs by Roland Barthes( Book )

115 editions published between 1970 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 1,772 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"El Japón es el país de la escritura. En 1970, Roland Barthes dedica una obra al sistema simbólico japonés, en un viaje no por el Japón rela, sino por el de sus signos. Barthes no es el turista que pasea por las calles, degusta la gatronomía o asiste a representaciones teatrales, sino el semiólogo que se afana por interpretar el significado y el significante. El resultado es un tratado sobre el signo, sus reglas y su belleza. Con El Imperio de los signos, Roland Barthes, uno de los máximos representantes del postestructuralismo francés y uno de los padres de la semiótica moderna, inicia una fase en la que comienza a sentirse escritor, a construir un estilo propio; en palabras del autor: "Este libro es una especie de entrada, no tanto en la novela cuanto en lo novelesco". Ésta es una obra de culto para todos aquellos que aceptan el extrañamiento que supone la confrotación con la civilización japonesa. Su lectura nos obliga a desprendernos de nuestras referencias y códigos culturales para entrar en un mundo dedicado enteramente al signo. Años después de su redacción, y pese a la evolución sufrida por algunos aspectos de la sociedad japonesa, los análisis de Roland Barthes permanecen inalterables."--Contratapa

Sade, Fourier, Loyola by Roland Barthes( Book )

88 editions published between 1970 and 2015 in 12 languages and held by 1,656 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 )

55 editions published between 1964 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,199 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

Incidents by Roland Barthes( Book )

21 editions published between 1987 and 2010 in 6 languages and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1979, just after having written skeptically on the question of whether a journal was worth keeping "with a view to publication," Roland Barthes began to keep--apparently with a view to publication--an intimate journal called "Soirées de Paris." The doubts he had entertained about the authenticity of the journal form now gave way to the necessity of, finally, giving direct notation to his gay desire in its various states of excitation, panic, and despair. Together with three other uncollected texts by Barthes, including an earlier journal he kept in Morocco, this remarkable document was published in France after its author's death under the title Incidents. Richard Howard's translation now makes the volume available to readers of English."--Jacket
Roland Barthes, structuralism and after by Annette Lavers( Book )

9 editions published between 1982 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aux yeux de Barthes, Sollers incarnait la figure de l'écrivain contemporain, en quête du nouveau. Trente-six ans après le Sollers écrivain, Philippe Sollers consacre un livre à celui qui fut son ami, dans le partage d'une foi entière en la littérature comme force d'invention, de découverte, de ressource, d'encyclopédie. Ils se voyaient régulièrement, échangeaient beaucoup, et ont partagé des combats importants, contre les académismes, contre les régressions politiques ou idéologiques. Barthes a éclairé le travail de Sollers par des articles qui demeurent d'une parfaite actualité. Sollers a été, dès les Essais critiques en 1964, l'éditeur de Barthes au Seuil, dans sa collection Tel Quel, et a été bouleversé par sa mort accidentelle en 1980. Bref, ils étaient très proches, dans leurs différences, et Sollers dit ici ce que cela représentait, à l'époque, et ce que cela continue de représenter, et d'engager comme enjeux. Le livre est complété par une trentaine de lettres amicales et émouvantes adressées par Barthes à Sollers."--Page 4 of cover
