This does not mean only that it has several meanings

This does not mean only that it has several meanings but that it fulfills the very plurality of meaning: and irreducible (and not just acceptable) plurality” (From Work to Text p . 59) . This means that along with there being several meanings to the text , it also cannot be broken down and simplified . The text can’t be classified because everybody experiences it in their own way . This is way that music intertwines into what Barthes is saying , because although there are many different ways you can interpret what somebody is trying to say or convey with their music , it is subjective to everyone . Burke , Fisher , and Barthes help us to better understand how a modern communication such as music can be influential in our modern society . Music being an open ended form of communication because it has so many genres , and many different ways to interpret it serves as an excellent example to how these three theorists illustrate modern communication to be left to be interpreted by the public and not the authors . Although they make very different points , their themes all intertwine because of how they say that language creates truth , and human beings make their own truth , and interpret their own truth .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
