Product Overview

In 1977, Roland Barthes became professor of literary semiology at the Coll?ge de France, where he taught for three years until his death in March 1980. His lectures, published more than two decades after his death, represent the final journey of one of the most influential thinkers of the twentieth century. In his later work, Barthes continuously challenged his previous ideas, seeking new ways of reading and living. He sketched the outlines of a critical and ethical project that is still thought-provoking and relevant today. Taking the Coll?ge de France lectures as a starting point, leading specialists assess Barthes''s legacy and the constituent fantasies that haunted his entire oeuvre. This volume reveals the untimely force of Barthes''s thinking, whereby looking back often means discovering unexpected possibilities for contemporary literary and cultural studies.
