The author of a text becomes the only transcendental signifier in a text because the author remains throughout the beginning and until the end of a text — and indeed every text. Burke To summarise, it is evident throughout that there are instances of authorial authority within a cultural text and indeed texts and performances in popular music.

Bhabha points to the unmappable spaces — the in-betweens and liminalities — that appear as archipelagoes on Introduction 15 the outer and inner margins of nations and metropoles: they are produced today primarily by global flows of migration and established diasporic cultures in which hybrid identities flourish in contemporary cosmopolitan societies.
Keywords for this topos include isolation, boundaries, independence, individuality, civilization, and migration. CIT Y. It is an amazing novel, illustrating the idiorrhythmy with a sarcasm typical of Zola, who has a sharp eye for falseness, dissimulation, and the comic in the society he depicts.
The city may be regarded as the opposite of the desert. Rather than being deserted it is characterized by references to uniform masses, at other times with variety and contingency. The topos of the city has affinities to the island as well as to home.
It invites reflections on various idiorrhythmic forms of living. In literary studies the modern city has been described as a mythological heterogeneous space for fascination and imagination e.
It has also been regarded as a place for anonymity, crossed by alienated literary heroes Dostoevsky, Hamsun, Kafka. Cities have been metaphorized as ant colonies and as jungles.

They have been recognized as sites for innovation and for speeding up technological solutions, infrastructure, and social relations Virilio. They are places for activity and exhaustion, but city planners and architects have always acknowledged the need for resting places as necessary conditions for a well-functioning city.
Cities can thus be seen as places where rhythms of activity and rest, of engagement and isolation, are central. The city has furthermore been recognized as a place for experimenting with a huge variety of ways of living together, a major theme in fiction from the 19th century on e.

Barthes claims to have chosen the texts randomly and without aiming to reach a clear conclusion. After the tuberculosis epidemic died down in the s, thanks to antibiotics, the sanatorium is a now outmoded concept as a health care institution. The life of the sanatorium and its companion institutions the mental asylum and the hospital is described in novels, short stories, and poems, especially from the 19th and 20th centuries e.
The sanatorium is also described in documents and literature concerning public health systems. The sanatorium is closed but at the same time subject to public supervision. As an institution, idea, and metaphor, the sanatorium includes an exploration of the telos and the idiorrhythmic aspect of recreational life.
The sanatorium can be taken as exemplifying various institutions in which people spend some of their lives living together, such as retirement communities, cruise ships, colleges, asylums, and prisons. Keywords here include health, death, institution analysis, illness, and identification. It is established and maintained rhythmically by various habits and routines for internal consolidation and exchanges with the surroundings. It usually signifies everyday routines and family life but is also a metaphor for a place that provides identity, health, nutrition, shelter, and security.
In this sense, the home is closely related to the topoi of the island and the sanatorium, and as a metaphor it is also opposite to the city and the desert. But what makes a territory homely in the last instance is usually Introduction 17 related to the relative stability of certain sensory qualities like color, smell, and sound as well as the existence of certain private objects.
The idea of the home has its own history, and through the ages the physical shape as well as the understanding of the home has changed from society to society and within different groups in these societies. Studies in the history of the home include artistic explorations of everyday life, as in photography and video art.
Traditionally, food is one of the products of the home and may be studied as a specific sort of idiorrhythmy, linked to the notion of taste as both a physical and cultural phenomenon.

At the center of home is the idiorrhythmy of shared life as well as the individual, single forms of living. And why these topics today?
The statistics on forms of living in modern Western metropolitan areas show that, since Barthes held his lectures, the percentage of singles has increased steadily at the expense of married and cohabiting couples.
The situation is the same throughout the Western world.

In his recent book Going Solo: The Extraordinary Rise and Surprising Appeal of Living Alone , Eric Klinenberg states that while 22 percent of the adult American population lived alone in , more than 50 percent of Americans did so in The tendency is the same in modern American and European households and is particularly strong in the big cities. The United States is a country characterized by mobility and labor migration.
The average American moves both often and far, repeatedly leaving family and networks of friends and contacts. What makes it 18 Living Together possible to associate these lifestyles is that they prioritize the individual at the expense of family. In addition, there is in both cases a fantasy about a way of life that is not static but is rather based on the balance between isolation on the one hand and attachment on the other.
The balance can be understood in different ways. Minors, H. J Music, Text and Translation. Bloomsbury Publishing Plc. Brackett, D Interpreting Popular Music. Cambridge university Press.
