Or a person who truly enjoys reading dry history textbooks, if such a person exists?

Eco is a no doubt brilliant I made it halfway eck this book before finally putting it down. It’s worth it to some, but me?

IL PENDOLO di FOUCAULT
Interspersed in the central narrative are conceptually interesting but actually excruciatingly boring journal entries written in gross purple prose by one of the characters, Belbo, and I wished with all my heart that pendoll editor out there were fouccault enough to force Eco to CUT THAT SHIT altogether. Belbo is extremely careful to penvolo try to create literaturebecause he deems himself unworthy, although it becomes somewhat obvious that writing is his passion.
It is possible though, that he had always been a “Diabolical”, and founded his publishing business to fish for information. The original Knights Templar organization is destroyed after the execution of Jacques de Molaybut the members split into independent cells located in several corners of Europe and the Middle East.
While I obviously haven’t given this one ‘glowing reviews’, my other-half wants to take a stab at reading this before I make it AVL on my shelf. These cells have been meeting at regular intervals in si places to pass on information about the Grail. The story involves three friends work at a publishing house that is used to seeing manuscripts exploring and supposedly revealing the secrets efo the Templars and other occult sects.
On the down side, it mostly relates to the Knights Templar and other fringe groups like the Cathars so I probably could’ve lived completely functionally in ignorance. At the very least, this book is an entrance into the confused mess of this intellectual tradition. Defert, “Chronologie”, in M.

And the ppendolo question of the novel: Definitely going in my unfinished pile. Ben, I’m so going to sock you one for giving this to me. So basically we get lecture after lecture from the conspiracy theorist characters who the actual writer has no respect for. Aside from its encyclopedic display of knowledge and conceptually interesting theses, Foucault’s Pendulum is overwrought, uneven, and just too long reminds me of Borge’s quip that an idea should be expressed succinctly in fiction.

Il Pendolo Di Foucault – Umberto Eco
Three vanity press employees Jacopo Belbo, Diotallevi, and Casaubon invent their own conspiracy for fun after reading too many manuscripts about occult conspiracy theories. Print hardcoverpaperback. In addition, I found this to be such a difficult read.
Want to Read saving…. I couldn’t keep it all straight. Finishing it was a huge triumph, not ffoucault I particularly enjoyed the experience, but because I was relieved of it. It does show how conspiracy theorists can make any idea self-prophecisizing sp? I would liken it to finishing a horrific marathon that almost broke me: The entire book pendloo narrated in first person by Casaubon, with brief interludes from the files on Abulafia. It just isn’t one I would describe as an enjoyable read.
Me irrita que parezca el principal objetivo de la novela por encima de la trama y de la narrativa. It’s supposed to be, I think, but the tension is lost in the morass i dialogue and background.
