I love Barthes writing. The preface to this book states that it will be difficult, but I was amazed enough to find it simple. I had already suffered a brief infatuation with Sollers before, but now I fear I'm in the midst of a full-blown obsession. What Barthes says he has done with language is amazing, and makes me incredibly upset that some of the core novels have yet to be translated.

Ideas, Ideas, Ideas: I love them.
