From the Publisher

"Eco''s essays read like letters from a friend, trying to share something he loves with someone he likes.... Read this brilliant, enjoyable, and possibly revolutionary book." -George J. Leonard, San Francisco Review of Books

"... a wealth of insight and instruction." -J. O. Tate, National Review

"If anyone can make [semiotics] clear, it''s Professor Eco.... Professor Eco''s theme deserves respect; language should be used to communicate more easily without literary border guards." -The New York Times

"The limits of interpretation mark the limits of our world. Umberto Eco''s new collection of essays touches deftly on such matters." -Times Literary Supplement

"It is a careful and challenging collection of essays that broach topics rarely considered with any seriousness by literary theorists." -Diacritics

Umberto Eco focuses here on what he once called "the cancer of uncontrolled interpretation"-that is, the belief that many interpreters have gone too far in their domination of texts, thereby destroying meaning and the basis for communication.
