A collection of Eco's essays and addresses delivered over the course of his career, all rewritten for this volume. A man with dazzling knowledge writes about Dante's Paradiso and practically the only one who believes it is the finest of the three canticas, he has something to say about the Communist Manifesto, Oscar Wilde, James Joyce as A Portrait of the Artist as Bachelor, Borges and my Anxiety of Influence, and with a wider brush of Symbolism and Style and almost best, the American Myth in Three Anti-American Generations. All of these among Falsehoods and how he writes. Wonderful. Orlando, FL: Harvest Book/Harcourt, Inc. 2005 First Paperback Edition First Printing. 5.25" x 8" tall; 334pp.
