On Meaning-Making: Essays in Semiotics
Sonoma, CA: Polebridge Press, 1994
back cover text:
‘On Meaning-Making’ addresses basic questions in semiotics, the theory of signs. What is semiotics? How is it used? How is it taught? To these questions Mieke Bal brings the perspective of a pioneer - a scholar and teacher who has grown from a formalist specializing in narrative theory into an interdisciplinary semiotician.
