Non ho letto le bustine durante la loro pubblicazione e leggerle adesso tutte di fila ha un sentore agrodolce. Ci sono ovviamente pezzi evergreen, ma molti appartengono a un passato prossimo che fa sorridere: penso alle riflessioni su internet e sulla tecnologia in generale, sui giovani del futuro che ora non sono più così tanto giovani, sulle ipotesi politiche e sociali di un prossimo futuro che per noi è già alle spalle. Quello che invece resta, anno dopo anno, è l'ironia e la la curatissima l ...more

Весьма, весьма мило! Я даже к Эко как-то лучше стал. Я же, если честно, НЕ СЛИШКОМ люблю его: ни имя розы, ни маятник фуко меня так особо не вставляют))) Но тут - да, действительно, размышления на простые темы ОЧЕНЬ умного человека. Отдельно хочу обозначить несколько моментов.

1. Хрестоматийное эссе "Как научиться хорошо писать" было перечитано мной с огромным удовольствием - оно действительно прекрасно! От советов

- Расставляй, запятые, где надо.
- Вульгарные слова используют одни говнюки.

Troppo ricco

Troppo ricco per riassumerlo o catalogarlo!
Questa raccolta di riflessioni di Umberto Eco contiene pensieri scritti tra la fine degli anni Ottanta e l'inizio del nuovo millennio; si spazia dalla politica alla cronaca, dalla cultura alla scienza, dalla letteratura alla filosofia, all'arte, alla televisione. Qualcuno potrebbe pensare a La bustina di Minerva come ad un testo di sociologia e storiografia testimone dei suoi tempi e ormai utile solo per lo studio del passato, ma, in realtà,

In diesem Band sind einige ausgewählte „Streichholzbriefe“ (Bustine di Minerva) aus den Jahren 1990–2000 versammelt. Diese Glossen schreibt Eco seit 1985.

Es fällt schnell auf, dass Satire nicht Ecos stärkste Seite ist. Die Form beherrscht er zwar, ist aber zu distanziert, um für seinen Humor begeistern zu können. Dafür legt er aber einen schlauen Gedanken nach dem anderen auf den Tisch, mitunter sehr verkopft, manchmal auch arg offensichtlich – aber sehr selten banal. Irgendwann findet man sich

"Каждому полезно попробовать регулярно писать, ограничиваясь форматом в 500 слов", сказал Эко в предисловии к этой книге. Она представляет из себя сборник его колонок в газете "Эспрессо", в основном написанных в течение 90-х годов. Колонки разнятся по качеству, но среди практически отсутвуют малочитаемые. Очень полезно оглянуться назад и увидеть какими глазами смотрел Умберто Эко на зарождающийся интернет, CD-диски, волны миграции, перевод судов в разновилдность шоу и другие темы.

Довольно забавно читать рассуждения начала 90х гг. о WWW, интернете и его необходимости/полезности, о том, что бумажную книгу ничего не заменит, сейчас, когда вообще непонятно, что делать на компьютере без интернета, а киндл или другая читалка есть у каждого второго (и да, эту самую книгу я читала с киндла). Но остальное, то, что не сиюминутно и не слишком касается итальянских реалий - вполне интересно, разумно и познавательно. Хотя и не так увлекательно, как "Имя розы" :)

Could not convince. I suppose the overly simplistic argumentations are due to the nature of the essays - the general audience would likely have been overwhelmed by Eco's academic style - but on the first handsful of pages I disagreed so profoundly with some of his opinions on minor aspects that I lost interest in the rest.

все круто, но для 2012 года уже немножко несвоевременно (кроме последнего рассказа про мудаков, разумеется)

Un'altra raccolta di brevi scritti di Eco; in parte non sono più attuali, ma sono sempre interessanti.

Una raccolta che va assaporata poco per volta. È incredibile come alcune delle riflessioni elaborate da Eco negli anni Novanta siano ancora attualissime.

Umberto 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 pe ...more
