MOTTA, Leda Tenório da. Roland Barthes e seus primeiros toques de delicadeza minimalista: sobre O grau zero da escritura. Alea [online]. 2010, vol.12, n.2, pp. 233-247. ISSN 1517-106X. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1517-106X2010000200004.
The article focuses on Roland Barthes' first book Le degré zéro de l'écriture and its possible meanings half a century after the author's death. It also examines the philosophical and literary appropriations of the first Barthes and explores the hypothesis that his writings, once supposed fragmentary, appear to be coherent nowadays, thanks to the unbroken line that leads from the degree zero to the Neutral.
Keywords : Roland Barthes; writing; degree zero; neutral.
