Roland Barthes by Roland Barthes

£9.99

This is the autobiography of one of the greatest minds of the twentieth century. As idiosyncratic as its author, Barthes plays both commentator and subject to reveal his tastes, habits, passions and regrets. No event, relationship or thought is given priority over any other; no attempt to construct a narrative is made. And yet, via a series of vignettes, Barthes’s life and views on a multitude of subjects emerge – from money and love to language and truth.
