Roland Barthes

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=95514760&cjsku=95514760...
This comprehensive introductory study considers the full range of Barthes' work - from his early structuralist phase, through his post-structuralist explorations of "Text", to his late writings. In looking at the late work, often of an autobiographical or personal-lyrical nature, Rylance examines the relationship between the critical and the personal, as well as Barthes' relation to developments in feminism and postmodernism. Throughout, Barthes' writings are presented as paradigmatic of many of the major shifts in intellectual opinion in the post-war period. The book is part of a series reflecting the broad spectrum of modern European and American theory. It focuses on those cultural theorists who have had the most significant impact in the 20th century. The series aims to show how modern thinkers differ in their aproaches to interpreting culture, texts, society, language, history, gender and social life. Designed to be accessible to students, each volume in the series the thought and work of often difficult theorists in a clear and informative way, balancing exposition and critique.

Roland Barthes

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=2534886&cjsku=2534886...
In this cogent, accessible biography, Andy Stafford offers a new picture of the man and his work, one that helps us to understand him even as it acknowledges the complexity presented by his restless interests and unorthodox career.             Stafford argues that Barthes is best classified as a journalist, essayist, and critic, and he emphasizes the social preoccupations in his workhow Barthes continually worked to analyze the self and society, as well as the self in society. In doing so, Stafford paints a fascinating picture not just of Barthes, but of the entire intellectual scene of postwar France. As Barthes continues to find new readers today, this book will make the perfect introduction, even as it offers new avenues of thought for specialists.

The book covers all aspects of Barthes's writings including his work on literary theory, mass communications, the theatre and politics. Moriarty argues that Barthes's writing must not be seen as an unchanging body of thought, and that we should study his ideas in the contexts within which they were formulated, debated and developed.

Roland Hayes

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=209521739&cjsku=209521739...
A gripping, sensitive biography of the trailblazing singer who carved a path for African American artists including Marian Anderson and Paul Robeson ( The Atlanta Voice ). Performing in a country rife with racism and segregation, the tenor Roland Hayes was the first African American man to reach international fame as a concert performer. He became one of the few artists in the world who could sell out Town Hall, Carnegie Hall, Symphony Hall, and Covent Garden. Performing the African American spirituals he was raised on, his voice was marked with a unique sonority which easily navigated French, German, and Italian art songs. A multiculturalist both on and off the stage, he counted among his friends George Washington Carver, Eleanor Roosevelt, Ezra Pound, Pearl Buck, Dwight Eisenhower, and Langston Hughes. This substantial and well-documented biography spans the history of Hayes's life and career and the legacy he left behind as a musician and a champion of African American rights ( BBC Music Magazine ). It is an authentic, panoramic portrait of a man who was as complex as the music he performed. Like manygenerations of celebrated African American concert artists, I aman inheritorof the legacyleftby the great Roland Hayes. Yet, we hardly knowhis name today. With this long overduebook, the oversight is now remedied. Lawrence Brownlee, Metropolitan Opera A wonderful journey through Hayes' performances, racial plight and acceptance. Examiner.com
