A very interesting lecture on Roland Barthes, semiotics and his “revolt against structuralism”. I’ve been a fan of Barthes’ literary work for a while, particularly in the field of semiotics, and this lecture distils a lot of it, albeit in a very animated way from Dr Sugrue. My favourite part is when Sugrue starts going in on Rambo and how the Vietnam War was portrayed. Man was spitting bars!
