The Name of the Rose PDF Free Download
If The Name of the Rose seems an odd choice for such critical and popular acclaim, Ecos elevation into literary superstardom seems just as surprising. A scholarly university professor, Ecos main fields of interest include semiotics, aesthetics, and medieval philosophy. Before The Name of the Rose, Eco was well-known among academicians as the writer of many scholarly books, particularly in the field of semiotics. No one could have predicted the furor caused by his debut novel; yet the well-drawn characters, the mysterious setting, and the detective-fiction plot continue to attract a diverse audience for the book. In addition, new critical studies of The Name of the Rose appear frequently, and there seems to be no slowing of critical interest. Rich, complicated, and multi-layered, The Name of the Rose promises to be an important novel for study for years to come.
