Even when Eco states quite explicitly that some of it is so? Larry Send a noteboard - 23/07/2010 10:20:34 PM
Of course the labyrinth is such an old trope that it seems more accurate to say that Eco is participating in a literary tradition that Borges was a part of; to say it's simply an homage seems a little limiting to me.


Found this interesting article on the Borgesian elements referenced in Eco's book. Some of the evidence apparently is based on Eco's comments.

Hm. Just read Foucault's Pendulum a while back. I intend to get on to this eventually. - 23/07/2010 07:24:39 AM 1282 Views
I started Foucault's Pendulum just last night. I know Tom loved it; what do you think? - 23/07/2010 07:34:28 AM 1207 Views

It even made me respect postmodernism! Well, a little. Eco's variant. - 23/07/2010 11:22:02 AM 1183 Views
