Theme: one of the primary goals of literary works is to ensure that the audience 's attention is captured and that it is able to derive suitable information by reading the stories.

Applying Barthes theory to his own work, one can then see how Barthes contradicts himself: He is instructing the reader to find meaning in the words of the text as an active process, but in the very act of his instruction, Barthes is admitting guilt to authorial intent. He is requesting the reader change their beliefs to benefit in the reader, and if his essay is taught in the Literature classroom, what separate’s theory from literature? Surely both subjects are inextricably tied, a story or narrative in a novel contains the same intellectual take-away as a well-written piece of theory, and if language does indeed act in a performative naure for the reader in a literary text, then it must also do so in a theoretical text.

I had expected the story of his victory on the northwest side of Torreys Peak where he was injured by a rock that slammed onto his feet, breaking three of his bones.
