Published in , Mythologies is a collection of individual essays linked by a common theme: the study of meaning that can be interpreted from signs. Highly influenced by the linguistic theories of Ferdinand de Saussure, Barthes’ essays seek to apply those academic models to the real world interpretation of pop : Roland Barthes.   That’s where “Mythologies” is at its strongest. Barthes was an unrelenting opponent of French imperialism, and the strongest essay in the book, “African Grammar,” exposes the colonialist.

Mythologies is written in two sections. The first consists of a series of essays on myths and the use of the mythic language associated with a diverse range of images in popular culture. In an introduction, the author writes that these essays were written, one a month, over a period of approximately two years. This book is more like an encyclopedia containing only brief information about various world mythologies. It contains abridged versions of mythological stories and its characters. In my opinion, this book cannot work as stand alone for an analytical study of world mythologies. However, it is a good reference book/5(42).
