Abstract

The most misunderstood essay in literary theory must be Roland Barthes's 'The Death of the Author' (originally 'La mort de l'auteur', 1968). Repeatedly critics and commentators have taken this satiric jeu d'esprit literally, and have credulously assumed that it is advocating the very position that it is condemning.
