ARRO, Evelin. A Controversy About the Language of Literary Criticism: (On Roland Barthes's Crítica y Verdad). Anclajes [online]. 2008, vol.11, pp. 9-20. ISSN 1851-4669.

The article investigates the controversy about the language of literary criticism originated in France in the sixties by the publication of the book Sur Racine by Roland Barthes. We specify the ways through which the author enters the polemic when writing Crítica y verdad, taking the dispute beyond a mere exchange of opinions. This work emphasizes both, the distinction carried out by the critic between the significant word and the symbolic word in order to establish the specificity of literary language, and Barthes's proposal of an uncertain literary science whose main purpose is the creation of an adequate language to speak about literature.

Palabras clave : Language; Symbolic word; Significant word; Literary science; Literary criticism.
