O text an attention to the very ‘grain’ of signifying activity and the desire to follow – in literature image film song and theatre – whatever turns displaces shifts dispersesStephen Heath whose translation has been described as ‘skilful and readable’ TLS and ? Barthes is not as difficult as he initially seems to people including myself The guy has what every great critic has a sense of humour pristine prose and razor sharp insight And don't mistake him for a cut and dry New Critics level formalist I have nothing against them let me note; his reasoning is better and his ambitions greater The New Critics can be seen as reductive in certain respects but if Barthes commits an act of apparent reduction it is to open whole avenues of exploration there are exceptions but that is the rule The three really famous essays contained here are all worthy of their acclaim especially The Death of the Author which has to be one of the most concise and cutting and connotation packed essays in literary theory Barthes is freuently misinterpreted and the victim of prejudice especially from the Anglo American academy to which I profess allegiance btw and like many other continental thinkers is often thought of as plenty pretentious and well obnoxious than he actually is The best thing about Barthes' writing is that it is loose and non conformist to the usual 'rules' of academic writing; while this tendency can make him harder to follow than the clearer philosophers and critics in the Anglo American tradition Barthes is a cut above most of his contemporary continental thinkers and deserves the attention but scarcely the vitriolic attacks he receives
