Synopsis

In these interviews, given between 1962 and 1980, Barthes speaks about the development of his thought, explaining why and how he wrote his many books, paying tributes to philosophers, linguists, novelists, poets, painters and film-makers who have inspired him, as well as discussing how his life became dedicated to an exploration of semiotics. What comes across is the sheer gusto of a man who never stopped developing and changing, and the warm personal side of his rich and probing intelligence.
