Eco U. On the Shoulders of Giants

Умберто Эко On the Shoulders of Giants (Unabridged)


In Umberto Eco's first novel, The Name of the Rose, Nicholas of Morimondo laments, «We no longer have the learning of the ancients, the age of giants is past!» To which the protagonist, William of Baskerville, replies: «We are dwarfs, but dwarfs who stand on the shoulders of those giants, and small though we are, we sometimes manage to see farther on the horizon than they.» On the Shoulders of Giants is a collection of essays based on lectures Eco famously delivered at the Milanesiana Festival in Milan over the last fifteen years of his life. Previously unpublished, the essays explore themes he returned to again and again in his writing: the roots of Western culture and the origin of language, the nature of beauty and ugliness, the potency of conspiracies, the lure of mysteries, and the imperfections of art. Eco examines the dynamics of creativity and considers how every act of innovation occurs in conversation with a superior ancestor. In these playful, witty, and breathtakingly erudite essays, we encounter an intellectual who reads comic strips, reflects on Heraclitus, Dante, and Rimbaud, listens to Carla Bruni, and watches Casablanca while thinking about Proust. On the Shoulders of Giants reveals both the humor and the colossal knowledge of a contemporary giant.

This magnificent new historical epic, and the first novel in The Century Trilogy, traces the fortunes of five interrelated families-one American, one English, one Welsh, one Russian, and one German-as they are buffeted by the extraordinary events of World War I, the Russian Revolution, and the women's suffrage movement.

Swift Jonathan Gulliver's Travels


Shipwrecked on the high seas, Lemuel Gulliver finds himself washed up on the strange island of Lilliput, a land inhabited by quarrelsome miniature people. On his travels he continues to meet others who force him to reflect on human behaviour - the giants of Brobdingnag, the Houyhnhnms and the Yahoos. In this scathing satire on the politics and morals of the 18th Century, Swift's condemnation of society and its institutions still resonates today.

Alastair Humphreys My Midsummer Morning


Seasoned adventurer Alastair Humphreys pushes himself to his very limits – busking his way across Spain with a violin he can barely play.In 1935 a young Englishman named Laurie Lee arrived in Spain. He had never been overseas; had hardly even left the quiet village he grew up in. His idea was to walk through the country, earning money for food by playing his violin in bars and plazas.The book Laurie Lee wrote – As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning – inspired Alastair Humphreys. It made him fall in love with Spain – the landscapes and the spirit – and with Laurie's style of travel. He travelled slow, lived simply, slept on hilltops, relished spontaneity, and loved conversations with the different people he met along the hot and dusty road.For 15 years, Alastair dreamed of retracing Laurie Lee’s footsteps, but could never get past the hurdle of being distinctly unmusical. This year, he decided to go anyway. The journey was his most terrifying yet, risking failure and humiliation every day, and finding himself truly vulnerable to the rhythms of the road and of his own life. But along the way, he found humility, redemption and triumph. It was a very good adventure.

Alastair Minnis Medieval Theory of Authorship


It has often been held that scholasticism destroyed the literary theory that was emerging during the twelfth-century Renaissance, and hence discussion of late medieval literary works has tended to derive its critical vocabulary from modern, not medieval, theory. In Medieval Theory of Authorship , now reissued with a new preface by the author, Alastair Minnis asks, «Is it not better to search again for a conceptual equipment which is at once historically valid and theoretically illuminating?» Minnis has found such writings in the glosses and commentaries on the authoritative Latin writers studied in schools and universities between 1100 and 1400. The prologues to these commentaries provide valuable insight into the medieval theory of authorship. Of special significance is scriptural exegesis, for medieval scholars found the Bible the most difficult text to describe appropriately and accurately.

Lester Del Rey Day of the Giants


Leif Svensen's neighbor, come to warn him that the farmers were going to take violent action against his dog for killing their livestock, mentioned that he'd seen an angel the night before. «Big blonde woman on a white horse, singing loud enough to raise the dead, about a hundred feet up in the air.» <P> Then, on his way to find his madcap twin, Leif met a stranger who knew his name and who spoke of «the Fimbulwinter already upon us.» Fimbulwinter! The dreadful winter that in Norse mythology preceded Ragnarok – the final war between the gods and the giants! Fimbulwinter – which presaged the Day of the Giants! <P> Leif Svensen and his brother were caught up in the destinies of a real but alien world. For if the giants triumphed, they would overrun Earth; and if the Aesir – the gods – won, Earth would be their footstool!
