The Tel Quel Reader
By

Rating
The work of the French literary review, intellectual grouping and publishing team, "Tel Quel", had a profound impact on literary and cultural debate in the 1960s and 1970s. From its beginning in 1960 to its closure in 1982, it published some of the key essays of major poststructuralist thinkers from Roland Barthes to Michel Foucault and Julia Kristeva. This work presents English translations of essays written by members of the "Tel Quel" group such as Michel Foucault and Julia Kristeva (a member of the editorial board) plus an interview with Roland Barthes. It aims to provide an insight into the poststructuralist movement and to present some of the pioneering essays on literature and culture, film, semiotics and psychoanalysis.
