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. The book is a collection of essays written by Umberto Eco for various conferences On Some Functions of Literature 2000 Literature keeps language alive It creates a shared body of stories and characters Different authors each given them their own spin but their core is part of the collective consciousness A Reading of the Paradiso 2000 Paradiso is about light which was an important concept to medieval readers and thinkers Cathedrals are all about different kinds of light We don t pay as much attention to the uality light any and it lessens our ability to truly appreciate the text as much as it was when it was written On the Style of The Communist Manifesto 1998 The format and structure of the Manifesto is a great sample of packing a lot of power in a concise space It has all the drama and plot twists of the best narratives The Mists of the Valois 1999 How the imperfect tense can lead to enough fuzziness about the action to leave the reader in perpetual mists and create an atmosphere felt than any feelings explicitly expressed in words This effect can then be reinforced and amplified by various narrative techniues Wilde Paradox and Aphorism 2000 An aphorism is a maxim that is witty and which appears to be true It expresses something commonplace A paradox is a maxim that is witty and appears false at first glance but reveals a deeper truth upon further examination To tell them apart reversing an aphorism produces something that still makes sense whereas reversing a paradox yields nonsense A Portrait of the Artist as Bachelor 1991 How James Joyce s style and literary pursuits were already well established by the time he graduated from college Between La Mancha and Babel 1997 How Joyce and Borges try to re invent language each in their own way Joyce by looking at all permutations of symbols Borges by looking at all permutations of ideasAnother interesting piece is how in Don uixote the story starts when the main character leaves a library to discover the world outside In one of Borges novels the main character enters a Library of Babel to escape from the world outside and experience reality through books Borges and My Anxiety of Influence Sometimes an author borrows an idea from another author Sometimes an author develops an idea from the general context not knowing that another author has also expressed the same idea too Some times an author develops an idea from the general context not knowing that another author was directly responsible for putting it there On Camporesi Blood Body Life 1995 Camporesi was a cultural anthropologist who studied texts for cultural artifacts studying the underbelly of civilization On Symbolism 1994 Symbolism as understood by the scholastic philosophers There is the perceived world of phenomena and the world of ideals hiding behind it In this way everything is a symbol that stands for an ideal which we cannot perceive directly On Style 1995 Style is how a work of art is put together Eco identifies three ways of studying style In a review the writer tells the reader about a book the reader has not yet read and impose the writer s judgment A history of literature discusses works that the reader already knows In both cases the writer can do artifex additus artifici an artist writing about an artist where he explains how he felt as he produced the work of art Or he can do philosophus additus artifici a philosopher writing about an artist where he explains why a given work of art is beautiful The third way of studying style is the semiotic reading in which the writer shows how the work of art produces pleasure rather then prescribing what gives pleasure Les S maphores sous la Pluie 1996 How a writer relies on some common images or experiences shared with the reader If the reader does not share a given image or experience part of what the writer was trying to communicate will get deformed or lost The Flaws in the Form Elements in the structure of a text If the work of art arises from the whole of the composition and how the parts all fit together then which parts essential Does it mean that everything else just fodder Will the art still arise if we remove those non essential parts And what about stopgaps small particles that enhance the flow of the work and assure its stability Intertextual Irony and Levels of Reading 1999 Draws heavily on Eco s Reflections on The Name of the Rose Eco is a big fan of layering multiple levels of meaning in his prose The reader can choose which level they latch on when interpreting a text Not all readers can access all levels of a text Some of them reuire specific knowledge to fully grasp them But missing out on one level should not keep the reader from appreciating others The Poetics and Us 1990 The influence of Aristotle s Poetics Notions of pragma action and mythos plot and how they apply to the many forms of story telling The American Myth in Three Anti American Generations 1980 Disregarding American politics American literature of the late 19th and early 20th Century appealed to European intellectuals The American it portrayed was open and free and devoid of all the barriers and structures that were so limiting on the Old World The Power of Falsehood 1994 How lies and fakes have played pivotal roles in the history of the Western World The Donation of Constantin solidified the power of the Catholic Church in Rome and was the basis of the power of the Papacy from the fall of Rome to modern times The letter of Prester John motivated the West s exploration and expansion into the East How I Write 1996 Eco s own uirky approach to writing his novels It focuses on The Name of the Rose Foucault s Pendulum and The Island of the Day Before with some bits about Baudolino He describes parts that were essential to him which I do not remember at all Makes me want to re read all his novels Right now

    The book is a collection of rewritten essays on literature from the past 20 to 30 years The range of topics in the book is vast and for someone who me is neither an expert nor a student of the field some of them are beyond difficult to follow However the essays that deal with Eco's own novels and other familiar books are very enjoyable What I appreciate the most is the chance to learn how someone with actual knowledge of the history and l
