This is a book which stems from the author's account of the genesis of his celebrated novel, The Name of the Rose, but which, like the novel itself, goes far beyond the particular. Eco's investigation of the mechanics of fiction expands into a debate that encompasses, in a small space, the workings of the imagination, the responsibilities of the novelist, and the blend of invention, research, and distilled commonsense that goes to make up the modern novel. Along the way, he touches on bad books, ideal readers, historical form, and the metaphysics of the detective story.… (mere)

I cheated and broke from my winter reading list because I wanted to read this with The Name of the Rose still fresh in my mind. So sue me.

While the name might make you think this is a continuation of The Name of the Rose, it's actually a short essay by Eco about the creation of the book/the Middle Ages/detective novels. (Apparently it's included with some editions -- my paperback copy certainly didn't have it.)

Like The Name of the Rose, I'm not sure I got everything in here (I'll probably regret this, but I think there are some parts no one other than scholars of Italian literature is going to get), but it's a fascinating, quick look into a great book. ( )

Un excelente panorama sobre El nombre de la rosa y el proceso creador de Eco. La visión familiar de un joven novelista conjugada con la mirada experta del teórico literario. ( )

This book is an interesting peek into Umberto Eco's thoughts about his novel The Name of the Rose. If you've read the novel, if you are a fiction writer, or if you're into literary theory, you should probably pick up this book.

The book answers my question about why in the name of sanity Eco stops the action repeatedly to insert things like a long description of a tympanum (it's something a medieval writer would have done). He also explains why the book has such a slow, difficult beginning (he intentionally ignored the advice of friends and his editor to test your patience before letting you into the story).

If you write genre fiction and understand that he believes it is inferior to literary fiction, you will be amused to see that his writing process sounds exactly like what you do to write your stories. My favorite example is that he did a year of world-building and invented characters he doesn't put into the novel, but he needed to know who they were in order to proceed. Sound familiar? Oh, and it finishes up with an unintentional writing prompt: the only mystery plot that remains unwritten is the book where the reader is the murderer. Something about the idea just makes you want to try it. :-)

If you're into literary theory, you get a bit of that too as he talks about his literary theories, reassesses some of his opinions from the early 1960s and discusses what constitutes postmodernism.

It's a very quick read with a ton of thought provoking ideas packed between its covers. Definitely worth a try! ( )

Escribí una novela porque tuve ganas. Creo que es una razón suficiente... Empecé a escribir en marzo de 1978, impulsado por una idea seminal: tenía ganas de envenenar a un monje.” Umberto Eco nos habla de cómo ideó y escribió El nombre de la rosa, de malas novelas de intriga, de lectores ideales, de los diálogos medievales y la metafísica de la novela policíaca. Sin duda, tras la lectura de estas Apostillas, el lector retomará El nombre de la rosa y, con renovada perspicacia y más sensible olfato, se encaminará de nuevo hacía el laberinto.
