Mythologies

By (author) Roland Barthes






| book description |

As the launcher of the whole science of semiotics - the study of the meanings latent in the signs and objects we come across daily in the modern media-saturated world - this book is reprinted in this edition. The author attempts to demystify the roles and values inherent in such diverse commonplace items as wrestling, Citroen DS, steak and chips and household detergents via a series of essays.
