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

    Myth is neither a lie nor a confession: it is an inflexion.
    Roland Barthes (1915–1980)

    Other countries drink to get drunk, and this is accepted by everyone; in France, drunkenness is a consequence, never an intention. A drink is felt as the spinning out of a pleasure, not as the necessary cause of an effect which is sought: wine is not only a philtre, it is also the leisurely act of drinking.
    —Roland Barthes (1915–1980)

    Your hooves have stamped at the black margin of the wood,
    Even where horrible green parrots call and swing.
    My works are all stamped down into the sultry mud.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

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