    "Figures among the very greatest works of criticism ever devoted to Racine. Its artful combination of structural and psychoanalytic perspectives makes the text of Racinian drama current for students and scholars generally in a way few academic studies can."--Christopher Braider, Harvard University"An immensely stimulating and thoughtful book. The structuralist framework allows Barthes to achieve a fruitful and stimulating convergence of pioneering Freudian (Mauron) and Marxist (Goldman) studies of Racine, with a Brechtian twist of his own."--Lionel Gossman, Princeton University

    In his consideration of the language of the fashion magazine--the structural analysis of descriptions of women's clothing by writers about fashion--Barthes gives us a brief history of semiology. At the same time, he identifies economics as the underlying reason for the luxuriant prose of the fashion magazine: "Calculating, industrial society is obliged to form consumers who don't calculate; if clothing's producers and consumers had the same consciousness, clothing would be bought (and produced) only at the very slow rate of its dilapidation."

    Originally commissioned by the Canadian Broadcasting Company as the text for a documentary film directed by Hubert Aquin, Barthes's almost unknown text is an investigation of the phenomenonof sport - sport as spectacle. He considers five national sports: bullfighting (Spain); car racing (America); cycling (France); hockey (Canada); soccer (England). For Barthes, sport serves the primary social function that theatre oncedid in antiquity, collecting a city or nation within a shared experience. The real pleasure here, however, lies less in the text's generalities, than in its fleeting, strangely haunting moments of insights. Illus., b&w photos. 84p.
