Editorial Reviews

Review

“In Roland Barthes, the critic has at last turned toward himself as the text to be studied. The result is a highly unconventional ‘autobiography’ (splendidly translated) which is brilliant and baffling by turns.” —The Washington Post

11 of 12 people found the following review helpful By "anniemcclanahan" on March 30, 2000
Format: Paperback
For the Roland Barthes fan--or any budding postmodernist--an absolute must read. Strange, often baffling, Barthes uses the "autobiographical" form to write what is part criticism, part poetry, part myth and part "true story"--if its not too unpostmodern to even use the word true. The title suggests it all--Barthes becomes his text, and vice-versa. Not a beach read, for sure, but very interesting nonetheless.

This is an autobiography to measure others by, a wonderful book. Barthes wit and wisdom shines through. The pictures show a side of life that makes you wonder about your own past.
