Mourning Diary

by Roland Barthes

The French critic Roland Barthes has guru status among literary theorists. This private diary opens the door onto his strange personal world, recording, day-by-day, the impact of bereavement as he struggled to live without the most important person in his life: his mother. Introduced by Professor Michael Wood.

‘Precise and touching memories intersect with spare and at times desperate notes on time, death, and grief.’
Julian Barnes
Mourning Diary, like nearly all of Barthes’s books, is a collection of beginnings, of fugitive and conjectural observations that lap over one another and push forward like successive waves onto a beach.’
New York Times
