Explains why Barthes' thinking in the area of semiotics made him a key figure in the structuralist movement of the 1960s. Describes how his later insistence on pleasure, the delights of sexual non-conformity, and the freedom of the reader to interpret literary texts in the light of ideologies such as existentialism, Marxism and Freudianism, as well as structuralism itself, continue to make him one of the most dynamic and challenging of modern writers.
