A LoverÆs Discourse, at its 1978 publication, was revolutionary: Roland Barthes made unprecedented use of the tools of structuralism to explore the whimsical phenomenon of love. Rich with references ranging from GoetheÆs Werther to Winnicott, from Plato to Proust, from Baudelaire to Schubert, A LoverÆs Discourse artfully draws a portrait in which every reader will find echoes of themselves.
