La novela emblemática de Umberto Eco.Una apasionante trama y admirable reconstrucción de una época especialmente conflictiva, la del siglo XVI. Valiéndose de las características propias de la novela gótica, la crónica medieval y la novela policíaca, El nombre de la rosa narra las actividades detectivescas de Guillermo de Baskerville para esclarecer los crímenes cometidos en una abadía benedictina en el año 1327. Le ayudará en su labor el novicio Adso, un hombre joven que se enfrenta por primera vez a las realidades de la vida, más allá de las puertas del convento.En esta primera y brillante incursión en el mundo de la narrativa, que Umberto Eco llevó a cabo hace ahora treinta años, el lector disfrutará de una trama apasionante y de una admirable reconstrucción de una época especialmente conflictiva de la historia de Occidente. Reseña: «Aquí hay misterios turbadores, personajes vívidos, un retrato logrado de una época fascinante, humor sutil, sucesos inesperados y una prosa ágil que puede adaptarse a los registros de la fe, la duda, el horror, el éxtasis amoroso y la desolación.»David Lodge ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Umberto Eco’s first novel, an international sensation and winner of the Premio Strega and the Prix Médicis Étranger awards.The year is 1327. Franciscans in a wealthy Italian abbey are suspected of heresy, and Brother William of Baskerville arrives to investigate. When his delicate mission is suddenly overshadowed by seven bizarre deaths, Brother William turns detective. His tools are the logic of Aristotle, the theology of Aquinas, the empirical insights of Roger Bacon - all sharpened to a glistening edge by wry humor and a ferocious curiosity. He collects evidence, deciphers secret symbols and coded manuscripts, and digs into the eerie labyrinth of the abbey, where "the most interesting things happen at night". "A brilliantly conceived adventure into another time, an intelligent and complex novel, a lively and well-plotted mystery." --SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE "The novel explodes with pyrotechnic inventions, literally as well as figuratively . . . The narrative impulse that commands the story is irresistible . . . Mr. Eco's delight in his narrative does not fail to touch the reader." --NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW "Like the labyrinthine library at its heart, this brilliant novel has many cunning passages and secret chambers . . . Fascinating . . . Ingenious . . . Dazzling." --NEWSWEEK "Whether you're into Sherlock Holmes, Montaillou, Borges, the nouvelle critique, the Rule of St. Benedict, metaphysics, library design, or The Thing from the Crypt, you'll love it. Who can that miss out?" --SUNDAY TIMES (LONDON)
