S/Z by Roland Barthes ( Book )
119 editions published between 1970 and 2007 in 7 languages and held by 2,175 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
Camera lucida : reflections on photography by Roland Barthes ( Book )
41 editions published between 1981 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,724 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"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 )
28 editions published between 1973 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,225 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
Writing degree zero by Roland Barthes ( Book )
34 editions published between 1953 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,217 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."--P. [4] of cover
Elements of semiology by Roland Barthes ( Book )
41 editions published between 1964 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,167 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

50 editions published between 1964 and 2000 in 4 languages and held by 936 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
