The Eiffel Tower and Other Mythologies is a collection of essays by the French literary theorist Roland Barthes. It is a companion volume to his earlier book, Mythologies, and follows the same format of a series of short essays which explore a range of cultural phenomena, from the Tour de France to laundry detergents.
