the writer and the text


My name is Kasia. I'm working on my M.A. paper in translation at the moment. I'm new to this community, but I already have a question.

I remember reading a text some time ago. It was about the writer and his/her work. The author of the essay claimed that every writer leaves a part of his self in the text, whether consciously or not. I think that the author might have referred to "The death of the author" in some way, arguing with Barthes' theory, but I'm not sure of that right now. The point of the essay (or the part of it) was that the writer is present in any text he creates.

I tried to google for the essay but with no satisfying results.

If any of you knows the title of the essay of the name of its author at least, please, let me know.

Thanks in advance
