Ces Essais critiques sont un pan essentiel de la réflexion de Roland Barthes sur le théâtre et la littérature. Des auteurs classiques, comme Voltaire ou Baudelaire, y rencontrent des modernes, comme Queneau ou Robbe-Grillet ; mais il ne s'agit ni d'un palmarès ni d'une galerie d'exemples : du combat brechtien à «l'activité structuraliste», en passant par la naissance du «nouveau roman», se dessine ici le tracé d'une des expériences intellectuelles exemplaires de notre époque, qui est la découverte et l'exploration - à travers les domaines privilégiés de l'écriture littéraire et du langage théâtral - de cet inépuisable empire des signes, où la pensée moderne mesure son espace et son pouvoir.

Roland Barthes (1915-1980)
Sémiologue, essayiste, il a été directeur d’études à l’École pratique des hautes études et a élaboré une pensée critique singulière, en constant dialogue avec la pluralité des discours théoriques et des mouvements intellectuels de son époque.

These Critical Essays are an essential part of Roland Barthes' reflection on theater and literature. Classical authors, such as Voltaire or Baudelaire, meet modern ones, such as Queneau or Robbe-Grillet; but it is neither a list of awards nor a gallery of examples: From the Brechtian struggle to "structuralist activity", via the birth of the "new novel", one of the exemplary intellectual experiences of our time is outlined here, which is the discovery and exploration - through the privileged fields of literary writing and theatrical language - of this inexhaustible empire of signs, where modern thought measures its space and power.

Roland Barthes (1915-1980)
Semiologist, essayist, he was director of studies at the École pratique des hautes études and developed a singular critical thinking, in constant dialogue with the plurality of theoretical discourses and intellectual movements of his time.
