Introducing Barthes (Introducing...)

Introducing Barthes (Introducing...) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Roland Barthes is best known as a semiologist, a student of the science of signs. Introducing Barthes brilliantly elucidates Barthes' application of these ideas to literature, popular culture, clothes and fashion, and explains why his thinking in this area made him a key figure in the structuralist movement of the 1960s. This is the perfect companion volume to Introducing Semiotics.

Synopsis:

Offers the reader a brilliant introduction to the basis of Barthes' thought, and will be of equal value to the general reader and the student of semiology, the science of signs.
