9780416796308: Structuralism and Semiotics (New Accents)

Published in 1977 as the first volume in the New Accents series, Structuralism and Semiotics made crucial debates in critical theory accessible to those with no prior knowledge of the field. Since then a generation of readers has used the book as an entry not only into structuralism and semiotics, but into the wide range of cultural and critical theories underpinned by these approaches.
It remains the clearest introduction to some of the most important topics in modern critical theory. A new afterword and fresh suggestions for further reading complete this new edition.

About the Author:

Terence Hawkes is Emeritus Professor of English at Cardiff University. He is the author of a number of books, including That Shakespherian Rag and Meaning By Shakespeare, and is General Editor of the Accents on Shakespeare series.

Review:

'A compact volume that performs marvels in the difficult art of summarizing (without betrayal) the complex theories that for the past seventy-five years have been labelled "structuralist". Hawkes ranges from Vico to Barthes, writing with a lucidity and grasp of the essential points that is nothing short of astonishing.' - Choice 'Occasionally a book appears which, because of its scope and vision, serves not just as a tool for our field, but as a suggestion of a larger enterprise. Hawkes provides such a work in this exposition and synthesis of major figures and works of the intellectual movement structuralism and it derivative semiotics. His treatment is thorough and scholarly, yet accessible to readers not already versed in the methods, concepts and argot of the movement.' - Quarterly Journal of Speech
