Краткое описание

The Infinity of Lists.

Since his first novel The Name of the Rose more than 30 years ago, Italian scholar Umberto Eco has become recognized as one of the world's most erudite and insightful polymaths; here his ever-curious mind explores one of humankind's most persistent intellectual activities. Mining Western culture he finds a plethora of lists—saints, rosters of soldiers, catalogs of mythical creatures and medicinal plants, cabinets of curiosities, and hordes of treasure. Produced in association with the Louvre, Eco's gorgeously illustrated book explores lists found in writings from Homer to Joyce, grotesques in Gothic cathedrals and the nightmare landscapes of Bosch, and the common objects in the art of Andy Warhol and Damien Hirst."The Thinking Person's literary equivalent to the Christmas pud: chockfull of goodies ... studded with obscure, spicy ingredients.... [The book is] profuse, plethoric, prolix, plentiful, playful, populous, picaresque, picturesque; copious, cornucopian, congested, clotted; incontinent, infested, infectious; omnivorous, orgiastic, odd; abundant, redundant; multifarious, multitudinous; glutted, gargantuan, inclusive, elusive, and ... exhaustive.... Why not just lie back and wallow in Eco's bath of superabundance."—Financial Times (London)
