qBarthes's most popular and unusual performance as a writer is A Lover's Discourse, a writing out of the discourse of love. This languageaprimarily the complaints and reflections of the lover when alone, not exchanges of a lover with his or her partnerais unfashionable. Thought it is spoken by millions of people, diffused in our popular romances and television programs as well as in serious literature, there is no institution that explores, maintains, modifies, judges, repeats, and otherwise assumes responsibility for this discourse . . .
