The pleasure of the text by Roland Barthes( Book )

212 editions published between 1973 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 2,683 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
The fashion system by Roland Barthes( Book )

135 editions published between 1967 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 2,203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Counter In his consideration of the language of the fashion magazine--the structural analysis of descriptions of women's clothing by writers about fashion--Barthes gives us a brief history of semiology. At the same time, he identifies economics as the underlying reason for the luxuriant prose of the fashion magazine: "Calculating, industrial society is obliged to form consumers who don't calculate. If clothing's producers and consumers had the same consciousness, clothing would be bought (and produced) only at the very slow rate of its dilapidation." -- from publisher description

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

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

72 editions published between 1980 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,927 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 semiotic challenge by Roland Barthes( Book )

88 editions published between 1985 and 2018 in 8 languages and held by 1,669 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Roland Barthes a été aussi un chercheur au plein sens du terme, un de ceux qui, après Saussure et Greimas, ont fondé la sémiologie. Ce sont les travaux où il pose les assises de cette discipline nouvelle qui sont ici réunis, et notamment Eléments de sémiologie, L'Ancienne Rhétorique, Introduction à l'analyse structurale des récits. Autant de textes proprement fondateurs et auxquels toute recherche doit désormais s'adosser. On trouvera, à côté d'eux, une série de projets sur ce que pourrait être l'enquête sémiologique méthodique dans des domaines aussi divers que la réflexion sur l'objet, la publicité, l'ethnologie, l'urbanisme, la médecine. Enfin, la mise en oeuvre de l'analyse structurale sur deux fragments de la Bible et sur un conte de Poe. Il y eut, chez Roland Barthes, un bonheur de la science ; il y eut aussi l'anxiété de la dépasser, de ne pas laisser se refermer le sens. Et c'est ce double mouvement qu'on verra ici à l'oeuvre
Sade, Fourier, Loyola by Roland Barthes( Book )

96 editions published between 1970 and 2016 in 11 languages and held by 1,621 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

A Barthes reader by Roland Barthes( Book )

44 editions published between 1980 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 1,382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Along with only a handful of other writers, Roland Barthes has set the direction of modern cultural and literary criticism. More than two dozen of his books have appeared in English translation, and several major American writers have heralded his essays as elegant and profound. This book includes his earliest essay (on Gide), his Inaugural Lecture at the Collège de France, and "Deliberation," none of which had previously been published in English. It also offers a broad sampling from the most representative of his major works: On Racine, Writing Degree Zero, Mythologies, Critical Essays, The Pleasure of the Text, Sade/Fourier/Loyola, Roland Barthes by Roland Barthes, Image-Music-Text, A Lover's Discourse, The Eiffel Tower and Other Mythologies, and New Critical Essays. The texts are presented in their entirety, except in the case of a few of the lengthier ones, from which Sontag has chosen substantial key sections. All the selections are eloquently translated, and Sontag's introductory essay-itself an important contribution to Barthes studies-stands as a definitive evaluation and summation of the author and his work

L'obvie et l'obtus by Roland Barthes( Book )

63 editions published between 1982 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 965 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These late essays of Roland Barthes's are concerned with the visible and the audible, and here the preoccupations are particularly intense and rewarding, in part because Barthes was himself, by predilection, an artist and a musician, and in part because he was of two minds about the very possibility of attaching to art and to music a written text, a criticism

Elements of semiology by Roland Barthes( Book )

5 editions published between 1968 and 1983 in English and held by 888 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
