Abstract or Introduction

The problem of authorship was one that caused many debates in the literary, intellectual cycles. The concept of author as well as the author’s contribution and effect in a work has been one that changed through time.Roland Barthes and Michel Foucault were both acclaimed thinkers that dealt with the matter of the author, searching in a rather philosophical way the role of the author in the creation, perception and meaning generation of a text. They both gave strong views on the subject of the author in terms of who the author is, what role the author has in the creation of a work and how much of the author’s self is in the work itself.
