How to Live Together

Novelistic Simulations of Some Everyday Spaces

In The Preparation of the Novel, a collection of lectures delivered at a defining moment in Roland Barthes's career (and completed just weeks before his death), the critic spoke of his struggle to discover a different way of writing and a new approach to life. The Neutral preceded this work, containing Barthes's challenge to the classic oppositions of Western thought and his effort to establish new pathways of meaning. How to Live Together predates both achievements, a series of lectures exploring solitude and the degree of contact necessary for individuals to exist and create at their own pace. A distinct project that sets the tone for his subsequent lectures, How to Live Together is a key introduction to Barthes's pedagogical methods and critical worldview. Barthes focuses on the concept of "idiorrhythmy," a productive form of living together in which one recognizes and respects the individual rhythms of the other.
He explores this phenomenon in five texts representing different living spaces and their associated ways of life: Emile Zola's Pot-Bouille, set in a Parisian apartment building; Thomas Mann's The Magic Mountain, which takes place in a sanatorium; Andre Gide's La Sequestree de Poitiers, based on the true story of a woman confined to her bedroom; Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe, about a castaway on a remote island; and Pallidius's Lausiac History, on the ascetic lives of the desert fathers. As with his previous lecture books, How to Live Together exemplifies Barthes's singular approach to teaching, in which he invites his audience to investigate with him, or for him, and wholly incorporates them into his discoveries. Rich with playful observations and suggestive, clarifying prose, How to Live Together is a foundational text orienting English-speaking readers to the full power of Barthes's intellectual adventures.

Portrait

Roland Barthes (1915--1980) was a French literary theorist, philosopher, critic, and semiotician. His books include The Preparation of the Novel: Lecture Courses and Seminars at the College de France (1978--1979 and 1979--1980); The Neutral; Mythologies; S/Z; A Lover's Discourse; and Camera Lucida. Barthes's work has been central to the delineation and development of numerous schools of theory, including structuralism, semiotics, existentialism, social theory, Marxism, anthropology, and post-structuralism. Kate Briggs is the translator of Roland Barthes's The Preparation of the Novel: Lecture Courses and Seminars at the College de France (1978--1979 and 1979--1980).
