Famous quotes containing the words roland barthes, barthes, works and/or roland:

    What I claim is to live to the full the contradiction of my time, which may well make sarcasm the condition of truth.
    Roland Barthes (1915–1980)

    The New is not a fashion, it is a value.
    —Roland Barthes (1915–1980)

    We all agree now—by “we” I mean intelligent people under sixty—that a work of art is like a rose. A rose is not beautiful because it is like something else. Neither is a work of art. Roses and works of art are beautiful in themselves. Unluckily, the matter does not end there: a rose is the visible result of an infinitude of complicated goings on in the bosom of the earth and in the air above, and similarly a work of art is the product of strange activities in the human mind.
    Clive Bell (1881–1962)

    O liberty! O liberty! What crimes are committed in thy name!
    —Madame Roland [Marie-Jeanne Philipo (1754–1793)
