Description
Here the author of The Name of the Rose, Foucault's Pendulum, and The Prague Cemetery takes us on a fascinating, abundantly illustrated tour of the fabled places in literature and folklore that have awed, troubled, and eluded us through the ages. From the epic poets of antiquity and the authors of the Holy Scriptures to contemporary writers of fantasy and science fiction, Umberto Eco explores this human urge to create such places, the utopias and dystopias where our imagination can confront things that are too incredible or challenging for our limited real world. Homer's poems and other ancient and medieval texts appear beside Gulliver's Travels and Alice in Wonderland, Tolkien shares space with Marco Polo's Books of the Marvels of the World, all illuminated with more than 300 vivid color images—some filling two pages.
