Roland Barthes; "Imperium znaków"; "Mitologie"
Miniatura i Mikrologia Literacka, T. 1 (2000), s. 30-45
This text constitutes one of the theoretical links of the “micrological project” which embraces the whole of the volume. The term "micro-reading”, created by Jean Pierre Richard in his book Microlectures from 1979, has been broadly explained here. Simultaneously, it is an attempt at exactly such a micro-reading of Roland Barthes’ Mythologies and Ike Empire of Signs. The Author concentrates on the unique, specific for Barthes, method of reading and writing based on the poetics of a fragment.
