Reading Eco: An Anthology

Reading Eco: An Anthology Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"[READING ECO is a timely indication] of the fruitfulness of perceiving Eco as the same in his metamorphoses. [It also testifies] to a certain price that Eco and his readers must/may pay for the enormous pleasure and intellectual stimulus of being Eco and being with Eco." --The Comparatist

Umberto Eco is, quite simply, a genius. He is a renowned medievalist, philosopher, novelist, a popular journalist, and linguist. He is as warm and witty as he is learned--and quite probably the best-known academic and novelist in the world today. The goal of this anthology is to examine his ideas of literary semiotics and interpretation as evidenced both in his scholarly work and in his fiction.

Book News Annotation:

Examines some of Eco's writings together with secondary sources in order to arrive at a more comprehensive critique of his literary theories and his notions of general semiotics as a cognitive social/cultural practice. Articles on literary semiotics, which comprise the second section, focus primarily on Eco, Peirce, Bakhtin, Greimas, Borges, and Derrida. Part three examines aspects of Eco's fiction.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [440]-472).
