Editorial Reviews

Review

(I)ntriguingly eclectic. It is fascinating to see this formidable, malleable intellect applied to such a wide range of topics, and with more spontaneity than is evident in most of Barthes' publications. The Prague Post

(The Prague Post 1900-01-00)

The Preparation of the Novel will generate some jouissance indeed.

(Spencer Dew Rain Taxi 1900-01-00)

The reader is afforded a genuine look behind the enigmatic curtain of Barthes' writings; here the physical, spacial, vocal Roland Barthes is arrested - captured - for all to experience.

(Nicholas P. Greco, Providence University College, Otterburne Philosophy In Review 1900-01-00)

Review

Praise for Roland Barthes: "Roland Barthes repeatedly compared teaching to play, reading to eros, writing to seduction. His voice became more and more personal, more full of grain, as he called it; his intellectual art more openly a performance, like that of the other great anti-systematizers.... All of Barthes's work is an exploration of the histrionic or lucidic; in many ingenious modes, a plea for savor, for a festive (rather than dogmatic or credulous) relation to ideas. For Barthes, the point is to make us bold, agile, subtle, intelligent, detached. And to give pleasure."—Susan Sontag
