Read full description of the books:
Culled from Eco's work for a literary magazine in the late 50s and early 60s, Misreadings is largely a series of lampoons and satire, exploiting the trends of the time. Much appears dated. The mass man of the Mad Men is approached by structuralist means. Kinsey meets Ho Chi Minh.
That said, there a few jewels, notably Letter to My Son penned in 1964 for his infant son Stefano, such is a meditation on military toys and a need for nurturing a sense of history. Make Your Own Movie is a digression on semiotics and cinema, one so rich as to give notice to those trawlers of Derrida and DFW.

Read information about the authorUmberto Eco was an Italian writer of fiction, essays, academic texts, and children's books, and certainly one of the finest authors of the twentieth century. A professor of semiotics at the University of Bologna, Eco’s brilliant fiction is known for its playful use of language and symbols, its astonishing array of allusions and references, and clever use of puzzles and narrative inventions. His perceptive essays on modern culture are filled with a delightful sense of humor and irony, and his ideas on semiotics, interpretation, and aesthetics have established his reputation as one of academia’s foremost thinkers.
