In Roland Barthes essay, Death of the Author, published in, Image Music Text, (Fontana Press) he writes of a new style of writing developing from postmodernism / surrealism.  The author writes in a style that removes himself from the text by writing using the first person and present tense.  Barthes writes that to give a text an Author imposes limits on the text.
