Read from September 16 to 21, 2011

the next time someone implies that my discipline well, isn't a discipline, I'm going to throw this book at them. while I don't think I'll ever totally emulate Barthes (a singular soul indeed), this book is doing a lot to explain to me how the close reading I already do works, and how I might be more rigorous in my practice. and his insights are always a joy.
