Umberto Eco has been an author whose works I have been trying to finish albeit unsuccessfully for uite some time now I have tried twice to finish Name of the rose but gave up half way in the process for want of a better reason Foucault s Pendulum was no better either The books seemed to mock me you need to read much better than this to get to us boyo was what they seemed to tell me Every time at the library I pause at the rack on Eco s books and think Should I or Should I not but this time I picked up this set of essays and it paid off in a way of its ownReading this book was like getting to a Labyrinthine library of some volumes which I had not even heard of before Once in the library Eco sets a brisk pace and walking along you see spines of books that bring vague but interesting recollections to the mind Eco talks at length of James Joyce the aphorisms of Oscar Wilde the influence of Borges in his works and so forth Language and literature becomes a test sample to him which he slices and dices with relish The parts on symbolism i skipped for i was never much a taker for it But the most interesting part to me was the final essay on Eco himself and his writing style as a whole pretty interesting considering the otherwise serious topics he chooses for the rest of the bookRecommending the book would be a dicey affairif you are not in the right mood for some really in depth critical reading on literature this would bore you out of your skullas it did to me on some days

Sulla letteratura

Sobre a Literatura e uase a mesma coisa “Sobre A Literatura” reúne 18 ensaios de Umberto Eco centrados na uestão da literatura Os textos são fruto da participação do autor em encontros simpósios e congressos literários De Aristóteles a Borges passando pela fina ironia de Oscar Wild. There s an essay in this collection titled On Camporesi Blood Body Life In it Eco writes about Piero Camporesi who in his writing apparently invites us to look inside ourselves not just emotionally but viscerally in terms of blood and body Eco finds this very strange uniue and suggests perhaps sarcastically but I doubt it that you read it in small doses It s too real this guy s writing you see you probably can t handle it all at onceAnd that in a nutshell is why reading Eco is such a frickin bore this guy is all brain no bloodI ve read pretentious self absorbed literary essayists before Eco takes the cake Even Harold Bloom has joy and openness in his writing Eco when he s not writing extensively about his own fiction as if it tops all else seriously is semiotics professor than reader Fine but you can t take the blood out of literature and expect readers to connect with you I can picture having to read essays from On Literature in a university class but I wouldn t take any seriously they re too self indulgent too ivory towery to be useful in today s literary climate Things have changed the old canon obsessed white guys don t hack it anyThe writing itself is repetitive verbose and excessive too many examples listed not enough meat to any argument Most of the essays could have been chopped by half others didn t need to be written at all the one about falsehood in texts and how it s not bad everyone already knew that I guess I liked On Style best but there were exactly two things that interested me beyond that The first was the discussion on formal stopgaps in The Flaws in the Form which was a cool perspective on how our brains automatically flip past phrases like he said when reading and how the writer can use this to their advantage or at least accept it as inevitable not every sentence can or should be beautiful The second was the process of creating novels through seminal ideas in How I Write but I got out of Steve Erickson talking about that concept for 3 seconds in a YouTube interview soAnyway if you read for blood I d say avoid Get an Alberto Manguel collection instead I have two Eco novels somewhere on my shelves and I m debating chucking em he and I are just not in the literary world for the same reasons

E o processo de tradução Com seu estilo envolvente Eco aborda diferentes pontos de vista e utiliza exemplos concretos para discutir os problemas de se traduzir Inspirado por conferências na Toronto University e em Oxford este livro é uma empolgante viagem pelos grandes desafios da linguage. As always Eco is brilliant clear and factual on all things he has to say Some of the articles reuires understanding of Italian literature or classical literature which I skipped because my lack of knowledge But those on symbolism perception of American culture in Italy and particularly How I write and the The power of falsehood were superb The last two are actually pretty necessary to understand Eco s novels and the ideas from which they germinated
