Lover’s Discourse by Roland Barthes

A Lover’s Discourse by Roland Barthes. Translated by Richard Howard. 1978 Hill and Wang, first U.S. edition, 234 pages. Barthes was a French philosopher, theorist, critic, and intellectual, who died in 1980 by laundry truck. According to the Washington Post: "In "A Lover's Discourse," he wrote that his investigation of love and desire "has been restored to its fundamental person, the I, in order to stage an utterance, not an analysis."" The Lover's Discourse was also heavily featured in Jeffrey Eugenedies's The Marriage Plot as the main accessory for the David Foster Wallace character.

"Another day, in the rain, we're waiting for the boat at the lake; from happiness, this time, the same outburst of annihilation sweeps through me."
