The Granular Success Egg: To quote Somerset Maugham: Feb 12, Nikhilesh rated it really liked it. The more i understood the essay, the more i gained respect for it.

I am happily convinced that to understand life is to understand language.

This fact has probably been staring me since childhood. The essay has not only overthrown the hegemony of the institution of the author but has for me given a new susureo to the very par The more i understood the essay, the more i gained respect for it.

El Susurro del Lenguaje

The essay has not only overthrown the hegemony of the institution of ussurro author but has for me given a new birth to the very paradigm of reading and interpreting. The name of the field is language. It is in fact language which owns man.

I love this revelation. Revelation of language as a field, a space of innumerable dimensions.

Language is that neuter he says, in which meaning is systematically, relentlessly being extinguished. Once studying theory and characters heavily influenced by theory, consequently paralyzed by analysis, i thought why is it so hard for theory to be put into practice?

It evades all our attempts at structuring meaning. The author is a cultural and social construct. If he is god then the critic is the priest who claims privileged access to a secret meaning.

Our virgin impressions of language are invalid they say. Barthes says both the god and the priest ought to be overthrown. Writing is the simplest anti-theological activity. In a movie or novel or real life i love it when one is confronted with meaninglessness.


All of the onion is about the peels. Barthes says that lennguaje of the text is about penetration to reach some ultimate meaning. There is nothing to penetrate. Only various surfaces to be traversed. That moment when one is robbed of what is inside of him. My pain, my suffering, my joys and ecstasy. Confrontation of the cold indifference dsl the universe, human destiny, the absurd.

Endless network of the signifier and signified. It has been the same inside of him as it was outside. There is no claim to originality. That which the author claims to have produced is nothing but joining of dots in the field of language.

We collect impressions of the outer world. We express ourselves in language.

Somewhere we see that our sorrows and sufferings are the same as those of other people. If we are lucky we confront the absurd. If we are lucky the frozen sea inside of us is struck by an axe My favorite Kafka notion.

Perhaps we see how we share our individual identity with humanity. One comes to see after reading this essay that language pervades both spheres.

To understand life is to learn the play of language and signs. I find tremendous satisfaction in knowing that the author has been overthrown from his high ground. There is hope and joy in this meaninglessness. I remember that delightful time when films like Dev D.

The Catcher in the rye does that for me too. The reader is now the focus of flourish of new meanings. The reader is now a person without a past, psychology and bias.

In his power is to wade multiple writings, voices, worlds and identities. Even a child knows that he is free to make whatever he wants of the book he read. But this essay has to be read to understand how the child has to be saved from the author- god and the priests and education overall if i can chip in.

To understand how language furnishes the death of the author. How the author, if seen as an undeniable source of meaning is harmful to our thinking process. To learn that wading through surfaces is really more fulfilling than penetrating hard enough to read a safe and stable meaning. View all 6 comments. Oct 08, Praiz Sophyronja rated it it was amazing Shelves: I can’t remember the last time I’ve been this angry at a Literary theory before. Barthes is essentially saying that the translation of thought into language removes the specific voice of the author.

Which to me, sounds like he is completely disregarding author’s intent. He is saying that regardless of what the author meant to write, there are cultural influences and “the author”, his person, his life, his passions–” are what creates the text. To this, I agree to an Wow. To this, I agree to an extent. He then goes on to say “Utterance, in it’s entirety, is a void process” which translated into lay-people prose is saying that when we utter language written or spokenwe are stringing together words, that then assume their own meaning in the body of language And if I want to be really philosophical, I can go on to say that the text itself does too.


The text is a tissue of quotations drawn from the innumerable centres of culture Translation: The author has nothing original to say. If the whole theory is based around the idea that everything the author writes isn’t really writing and there is nothing that is original, then we, as readers should be categorized in the same field.

We should be side by side in this proverbial coffin with ‘The Author’. The Scriptor no longer bears within him passions, humours, feelings, impressions, but rather this immense dictionary from which he draws a writing that can know no halt Then, what’s the point of an author?

El Susurro del Lenguaje : Professor Roland Barthes :

Why do we create art? If not to express ourselves?! Different emotions, different situations. No single person is exactly the same for everything to be unoriginal.

Sure, there is intertextuality and interpretation, but that can only take you so far.

If this theory eo any logical leeway, why does shit like Plagiarism exist?! Oct 11, Tasniem Sami rated it it was amazing. The birth of the reader must be at the cost of the death of the Author. Oct 21, Shaimaa rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is quite provocative; I have contradictory thoughts about this essay. Let’s put lenfuaje into words!

Basically, Roland Barthes argues that the meaning of a literary work is not created by the author rather by the destination reader. For him, the author is the one lenguaej re-combines pre-existing things he was previously aware of from different cultures and did not come up with some thing new. He also argues that the author only exists at the time of writing; after that, he is dead. The author, he a This is quite provocative; I have contradictory thoughts about this essay.

The author, he asserts, has no power over the text beyond that. The reader is the one who decides what the text means.
