    3. Umberto Eco - Baudolino / - LESELUST-Rezension
    Historischer Roman. Rezension von Daniela Ecker.
    Umberto Eco - Baudolino
    Originaltitel: Baudolino
    Roman. Hanser Literatur Verlag 2001
    598 Seiten, ISBN: 3446200487
    Im finstersten Mittelalter gelingt es einem jungen italienischen Schelm, durch seine lebhafte Phantasie und die Gabe, stets das zu formulieren, was andere gerne hören wollen, dem Leben als einfacher Bauerntöpel zu entfliehen und stattdessen an den Hof Kaiser Friedrichs zu kommen, der als Barbarossa bekannt ist.
    Baudolino lernt Friedrich im Nebel kennen und hilft dem verirrten Kaiser, wieder zu seinen Truppen zu finden. Dieser findet Gefallen an dem hellen Köpfchen und lässt ihn unterrichten. Sein erster Lehrherr, Bischof Otto, ist gerade dabei, eine Chronik zu verfassen. Und hier lernt Baudolino auch bereits ganz Wesentliches seine Zukunft: es kommt nicht immer darauf an, die Wahrheit zu erzählen. Wenn man davon überzeugt ist, dass etwas passiert sein kann, dass etwas existieren kann, dann sollte man davon berichten, als wäre es wahr. Eine Praktik, die Baudolino sich nicht erst aneignen muss.
    Als Otto stirbt und Baudolino sich Hals über Kopf in die junge Frau des Kaisers verliebt, ist er nicht unglücklich, nach Paris geschickt zu werden, um dort weiter zu studieren. Eifrig lernt er, aber er lässt auch das Studentenleben nicht zu kurz kommen; die Freunde, die er hier findet, werden ihn sein Leben lang begleiten und immer wieder treu zur Seite stehen. So groß das Angebot auch an amourösen Abenteuern in Paris auch sein mag: er ist immer noch verliebt in Beatrix. "Schreib mir" hatte sie ihm gesagt. Und er schreibt, erzählt ihr, was er gelesen, gelernt hat. Aber das genügt ihm nicht. Neben diesen Briefen verfasst er auch glühende Liebesbriefe, die er nie abschickt. Und weil auch das alleine nicht genügt, beginnt er, auch ihre Antworten an ihn zu formulieren.

    by Bamber Gascoigne
    Umberto Eco (1932-) - Pseudonym: Dedalus Italian literary critic, novelist, semiotician, who gained international fame with his intellectual detective story IL NOME DELLA ROSA (1980, The Name of the Rose), a book about books. It extended the use of semiotics to fiction, and combined various genres, literary theory, mediaeval studies, mystery, and biblical exegesis. As a semiotician Eco is known for his contribution to the theoretical study of signs encompassing all cultural phenomena. Much of his study, including A Theory of Semiotics (1976), has been on the development of a methodology of communication. "'L'Anticristo può nascere dalla stressa pietà, dall'eccessivo amor di Dio o della verità, come l'eretico nasce dal santo e l'indemoniato dal veggente. Temi, Adso, i profeti e coloro disposti a morire per la verità, ché di solito fan morire moltissimi con loro, spesso prima di loro, talvolta al posto loro.'" (from Il nome della rosa Umberto Eco was born in Alessandria – the city is known for the Borsalino company, the maker of the famous hats. After completing his

    From Internet to Gutenberg
    A lecture presented by Umberto Eco
    The Italian Academy for Advanced Studies in America
    November 12, 1996
    According to Plato (in Phaedrus) when Hermes, the alleged inventor of writing, presented his invention to the Pharaoh Thamus, he praised his new technique that was supposed to allow human beings to remember what they would otherwise forget. But the Pharaoh was not so satisfied. "My skillful Theut, he said, memory is a great gift that ought to be kept alive by training it continuously. With your invention people will not be obliged any longer to train memory. They will remember things not because of an internal effort, but by mere virtue of an external device." We can understand the preoccupation of the Pharaoh. Writing, as any other new technological device, would have made torpid the human power which it substituted and reinforced - just as cars made us less able to walk. Writing was dangerous because it decreased the powers of mind by offering human beings a petrified soul, a caricature of mind, a mineral memory.

    Italian teacher and writer, an essayist and researcher, whose 1980 novel, "Name of the Rose," was made into a 1986 film. A medieval scholar for more than 30 years, with special interest in semiotics (the study of signs), his main claim to fame had been a chatty weekly column in Italian newspapers until his phenomenal overnight success with his gripping novel. He is considered a "colossus of learning," with 13 honorary doctorates and governmental honors. Eco grew up in a lower middle class background in Alessandria, a medieval fortress city about 60 miles south of Milan. His father was an accountant, and wanted Eco to become a lawyer, but he was drawn to philosophy while studying at the University of Turin and wrote his thesis on Thomas Aquinas. He received his doctorate there in 1954. After college, he went to work at the cultural desk of RAI, Italy's state-owned TV network. When that job was completed, he began teaching at the University of Florence and later Bologna. He became associated with writers concerned with social change known as the 'Gruppo 63,' forming a literary movement that flourished in Italy during the late '50s and most of the '60s. His work, "The Open Work," published in 1962, served as a theoretical manifesto for the 'Gruppo 63.'
