2015 Issue: Mythologies


“[I]n the account given of our contemporary circumstances, I resented seeing Nature and History confused at every turn, and I wanted to track down … the ideological abuse which, in my view, is hidden there …. But I was already certain of a fact from which I later tried to draw all the consequences: myth is a language.

– Roland Barthes, Mythologies, 1957
