9780099437420: A Lover's Discourse: Fragments

'A Lover's Discourse' is a detailed, painstaking anatomy of desire. Its mini-topics range throughout the entire gamut of love and beyond: jealousy, waiting, letters, being in love with love itself, the meaning of 'i love you', quarrels, the threat of suicide, love at first sight, and more. All readers will find something they recognize in Barthes' recreation of the lover's fevered consciousness: the book is an ecstatic celebration of love and language.

It is a language of solitude, of mythology, of what Barthes calls an image repertoire . This book revives - beyond the psychological or clinical enterprises which have characterised such researches in our culture - the notion of the amorous subject. It will be enjoyed and understood by two groups of readers: those who have been in love (or think they have, which is the same thing), and those who have never been in love (or think they have not, which is the same thing). This book might be considered, in its restless search for authorities and examples, which range from Nietzsche to Zen, from Ruysbroek to Debussy, an encyclopaedia of that affirmative discourse which is the lover s.
