Abstract:

"Fifty years after the publication of Roland Barthes's Mythologies, this volume of Yale French Studies brings together a number of new approaches to the study of myth as a defining element of modern and postmodern culture in Prance. Defining myth not as a rigid structure, but rather as a privileged site of production for definitions of national, imperial, social, or political identity, this volume reconstructs the mythologies and mythographies that still shape France today."--Jacket.
