An Analysis of Roland Barthes's The Death of the Author by Laura Seymour

Roland Barthes's 1967 essay, The Death of the Author, argues against the traditional practice of incorporating the intentions and biographical context of an author into textual interpretation because of the resultant limitations imposed on a text. Hailing the birth of the reader, Barthes posits a new abstract notion of the reader as the conceptual space containing all the text's possible meanings. The essay has become one of the most cited works in literary criticism and is a key text for any reader approaching reader response theory.
