Essays on the codings that command our daily life (from hair-styles in the film of Julius Caesar through glossy photos of gourmet cooking, to the cult of foam in detergents)...Mythologies has penetrating gusto -- Christopher Ricks ― Sunday Times
Semiology is the study of the signs and signals, the symbols, gestures and messages through which western society sustains, sells, identifies and yet obscures itself by painting or powdering over its raddled, whore-like visage... Barthes' purpose is to tear away masks and demystify the signs, signals and symbols of the language of mass culture -- Dennis Potter ― The Times
All about the most ordinary things. He knew how to connect Racine and beach holidays, Freud and the anticipation of a lover's phone call. Like so many modern artists, he saw the deeper themes running through supposedly banal things. -- Alain de Botton ― Daily Express

The printing of this book is abysmal, every 5 or so pages there is a column or text that hasn’t been printed properly and assumptions have to be made in what the text says. Don’t buy from this seller with this quality control, I would have returned the book if I didn’t need it for school immediately
The body of the book is short bites of stimulating thoughts - usually around 3-4 pages - about popular culture items such as 'novels and children', 'toys', 'wine and milk', 'striptease', etc.
The volume ends on a 50-page development on the nature of myths, discussed in terms of semiology, which is most interesting.
One should keep in mind that this book is a selected translation, and not integral.
although I have been using the essays online I preferred my own version where I could write in the margins etc. I found I had a great interest in the essays and began a more in-depth study of them through this book.
Book was as described and in perfect condition
A classic that is very deserving of its status in the pantheon of giants.
