About this item

Una colección de ensayos brillantes que abordan temas clásicos sobre la literatura. Sobre literature es una recopilación de ensayos breves dirigidos a un público muy amplio y cuyo sujeto de estudio es siempre la literatura. Así, Eco desgrana los enigmas ocultos tras las palabras más bellas. Desde reflexiones sobre los grandes autores de la historia hasta los problemas habituales enla creación literaria, Se trata, en cualquier caso, de escritos ocasionales que revelan una continuidad de los intereses del autor, una visita ignorar estas fuentes de inspiración, que arrojan una nueva luz sobre el quehacer literario del gran semiólogo italiano.ENGLISH DESCRIPTIONIn this collection of essays and addresses delivered over the course of his illustrious career, Umberto Eco seeks "to understand the chemistry of [his] passion" for the word. From musings on Ptolemy and "the force of the false" to reflections on the experimental writing of Borges and Joyce, Eco's luminous intelligence and encyclopedic knowledge are on dazzling display throughout. And when he reveals his own ambitions and superstitions, his authorial anxieties and fears, one feels like a secret sharer in the garden of literature to which he so often alludes.Remarkably accessible and unfailingly stimulating, this collection exhibits the diversity of interests and the depth of knowledge that have made Eco one of the world's leading writers.
