The essays in this volume were written during the years that its author's first four books were published in France. They chart the course of Barthe's criticism from the vocabularies of existentialism and Marxism (reflections on the social situation of literature and writer's responsibility before History) to a psychoanalysis of substances (after Bachelard) and a psychoanalytical anthropology (which evidently brought Barthes to his present terms of understanding with Levi-Strauss and Lacan).

From the Back Cover:

Most of the work in Critical Essays marks and apparently decisive conversion to structuralism understood in its strictest sense, whereby literature and social life are regarded as 'no more than' languages, to be studied not in their content but in their structure, as pure relational systems.

About the Author:

Roland Barthes (1915-80), one of the most celebrated French intellectuals to have emerged since Jean-Paul Sartre, wrote on a variety of topics including semiology, literature, fashion, and photography. His works include Writing Degree Zero, S/Z, The Pleasure of the Text, Mythologies, A Lover's Discourse, and the autobiographical Roland Barthes. Richard Howard won the 1970 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry for Untitled Subjects. A noted critic, he has also translated works by many prominent French authors, including Andre Gide, Claude Simon, Michel Leiris, and Marguerite Yourcenar.
