Descripción

A major discovery: The lost diary of a great mind—and an intimate, deeply moving study of grief

The day after his mother's death in October 1977, the influential philosopher Roland Barthes began a diary of mourning. Taking notes on index cards as was his habit, he reflected on a new solitude, on the ebb and flow of sadness, and on modern society's dismissal of grief. These 330 cards, published here for the first time, prove a skeleton key to the themes he tackled throughout his work. Behind the unflagging mind, "the most consistently intelligent, important, and useful literary critic to have emerged anywhere" (Susan Sontag), lay a deeply sensitive man who cherished his mother with a devotion unknown even to his closest friends.

Reseñas de lectores

  • (3/5)
    I didn't connect with this emotionally, although there were some profound entries.
  • (4/5)
    As a standalone book, kind of meh. works best as a companion to other works by Barthes, I think. some lovely gems and insights, though.
  • (5/5)
    "I am either lacerated or ill at ease
    and occasionally subject to gusts of life"

    Devastating.
