summary Il pendolo di Foucault

.

The best and the worst thing I can say about this novel is that it s a difficult read Sure the author is Italian but that doesn t automatically make it difficult only a novel that I ve read out of its normal language No the novel isn t even difficult in the traditional sense where the sentence structure is hard to follow and there might be four hundred commas per dozen pages The writing is ite nice No the novel is difficult because it reuires the reade This is a novel that contrasts the acceptance and delight in the world as it is with the conseuences of the desire to read in meanings to everything that we see about s In Eco s earlier bookThe Name of the Rose the detective mystery was parodied and this is taken one step further in this novel The Detective mystery assumes that there is a mystery that can be solved It invites investigation In this novel the constant working deeper into mysteries produces only obscurity the penis is just a phallic symbolview spoiler or as has been said in Britain Brexit means Brexit hide spoiler Descartes said Cogito ergo sumEco says I seek meaning therefore I am humanIt s very hard to succinctly describe exactly what this novel is From looking at the plot description you may be forgiven for assuming That It Is A it is a like Holy Blood Holy Grail by Michael Baigent #Richard Leigh And Henry #Leigh and Henry or Dan Brown s The Da Vinci Code There is an overlap in the fact that all three books deal with conspiracies that revolve around the mystical and mythical order of the Knight s Templar view spoiler who were among the most wealthy and powerful of the Western Christian military orders and were among the most prominent Actors Of Christian Finance The of Christian finance The existed for nearly two centuries during the Middle AgesOfficially endorsed by the Catholic Church around 1129 the Order became a favoured charity throughout Christendom and grew rapidly in membership and power Templar knights in their distinctive white mantles with a red cross were among the most skilled fighting nits of the Crusades Non combatant members of the Order managed a large economic infrastructure throughout Chri.
