green titles spine; "this book discusses the nature and development of structuralism and semiotics, and the principles and issues at stake. It is intended for those with no prior knowledge of the field. It begins with a historically-based description of the growth of structuralist thinking out of the related disciplines of linguistics and anthropology, making special reference to the work of Saussure, l.evi-Strauss, and the American structural linguists. It moves on, through a discussion of Russian Formalism, to an exposition of the chief 'structuralist' ideas current in the study of literature. The work of Roman Jakobson, Roland Barthes and others is closely looked at. It then takes up the questions raised by the whole 'science of signs', considering such matters as the nature and status of 'literariness', what 'reading' really involves, and the ultimate function of 'writing' in its various modes."; previous owner's name on pre-title page; including index - 192 pages.
