Umberto Eco is a novelist of ideas His The Name of the Rose even though a thrilling mystery story was actually a primer on medieval Christianity and monastery life Foucault s Pendulum which I couldn t complete is a textbook on occultism and conspiracy theories The Mysterious Flame of ueen Loana is ostensibly a novel about a man searching for his lost memory but it is actually a treatise on growing up as a bookworm in fascist ItalyThe point is attempt this book only if you are happy with long rambling passages full of information because nothing much happens here If you are the kind of person who wants to forego all the preliminaries and cut to the chase this novel is not for you But if like me you enjoy infodumps you might enjoy muddling through this tomeSignor Yambo Bodoni a seller of ancient books has had an incident what exactly happened is never stated but we may assume it was a stroke which has left him with a strange form of amnesia Usually an amnesiac retains his implicit memory which allows him to brush his teeth swallow his food and even drive a car However explicit memory which contains the record of the actual such operations he has carried out in the past is gone In the case of Yambo due to a strange uirk he has lost only part of his explicit memory that which is called episodic memory related to his actual actions The part called semantic memory which records the results of those actions is largely intact What this means is that Yambo can remember the books he has read and that he has retained the knowledge he has accumulated without actually remembering how he did it And needless to say he has no personal memories leftIn attempt to get his past back Yambo travels to his ancestral home in Solara where he spent most part of his childhood with his paternal grandfather his parents having died uite early There in his ancestral home he rummages through his childhood books magazines notebooks and music to trace a trail of paper memory in the hope of capturing his lost personality In the process he goes through a wealth of childhood memorabilia hoarded in the attic and boarded up chapel of the villa during the growth and collapse of the fascist empire of Benito MussoliniYambo has flashes of recognition when he hears a piece of music or reads a particular line in a book He calls it a flame which lights up his mental fog giving glimpses of a lost time In fact he is obsessed with metaphors about fog which keep on running through his mind As he digs through the books comics and magazines he devoured as a child and listens to the music from a vanished time he is suddenly plunged into the dark well of his buried memory and the story moves towards its climaxAs a novel I would call this a resounding failure There is no characterisation at all apart from Yambo most are pasteboard there is no plot development hell there is no plot worth the name and there is little temporal movement However if one considers this a treatise on popular culture during the days of Mussolini as I said at the outset it is uite an enjoyable read especially because Eco floods the book with colourful illustrations and garish posters We are actually part of Yambo s journey through his troubled pastThe author sees the attic as a sort of womb into which his character can enter and come out in symbolic rebirth If a cellar prefigures the underworld the attic promises a certain threadbare paradise where dead bodies appear in a pulverulent glow a vegetal elixir that in the absence of green makes you feel you are in a parched tropical forest an artificial canebreak where you are immersed in a tepid saunaI had thought cellars symbolised the welcome of the mother s womb with their amniotic dampness but this aerial womb made up for that with an almost medicinal heat And in that luminous maze where if you pushed aside a couple of roof tiles you would see the open sky a composite mustiness hung in the air the odour of silence and calm I have a feeling Eco here is trying to talk about the lost memory of a generation of Italians where fascism has been safely ensconced in its attic retreat Maybe it s time for the country to go back there and dust it out to come to terms with itAll in all rather a disappointment Attack of the Living Mask Choose Your Own Nightmare #17 retornar para o presente De Flash Gordon e Dick Tracy ao primeiro amor Umberto Eco Virtue resgata sua própria juventude misturando se página a página com seu protagonista Justificando o subtítulo Romance ilustrado Eco passou dois anos à procura de imagens e ícones ue Breaking Ground representassem a memória de Yambo e a sua própria A Misteriosa Chama da Rainha Loana IBM's Early Computers History of Computing recompõe a história da Itália dos anos 1930 e 40 Eco traz à tona histórias de Julio Verne; discos de 78 Catholic Social Teaching rotações; figurinhas de álbuns.

review La misteriosa fiamma della regina Loana Ô eBook or Kindle ePUB Imagine acordar um dia e perceber ue você perdeu a memória Não sabe onde está como se chama uem é sua mulher ou marido se é casado ou não uem são se é ue existem seus filhos É o ue acontece com Yambo o protagonista do novo romance de Umberto Eco A Misteriosa Chama da Rainha Loana Yambo lembra se de Waterloo de como se dirige um automóvel e se escova os dentes mas não lembra uem ele é Permanece a memória semântica sabe tudo ue leu sobre Napoleão ou Julio César e consegue citar trechos inteiros da Divina Comédia e automática mas perdeu se a memória afetiva o ue constitui seu ser e sua própria história Depois do coma ue causou a amnésia por recomendação médica Yambo viaja para a casa de campo ue fora de seu avô um colecionador de tralhas uinuilharias jornais e revistas antigas. I was about 150 pages into the book when I started feeling the way you feel when you re looking through stacks of photo albums with someone you don t really know who s telling you very detailed stories about people you ve never met and places you ve never been people and places to whom you have no connectionIn the end the concept of the book which is what drew me to it in the first place was what made it weak People are interesting because of their experiences their memories of them their stories Yambo a blank slate at the beginning of the book has none of these and 300 pages is a long way to go to get them By the time his character developed enough substance I was kind of too tired to care Still the book was better than just ok Though I couldn t relate it was incredibly well crafted and clever and probably not the Eco I should have started withI change my mind It really was just ok if even that

I m really lukewarm on this novel I bought it when it first came out in paperback here in the US and then put it up on the shelf next to The Brotherhood of the Rose and let it sit there like a bottle of wine until last week I admired all of the colorful illustrations in it but the synopsis of the story itself didn t really grab me Anyway long weekends of staying inside prompted me to pull it down from the shelf and uncork it Much of it is pretty good from the point of view of a middle aged guy myself The big difference being that I myself did not spend my formative years under a fascist dictatorship But I could relate to the pursuit of one s past through the books of one s childhood For most guys my age in the US that could be The Hardy Boys Doc Savage GI Joe Wacky Packages Batman boy scouts school primers and capitalist propaganda For our protagonist it wasn t much different Comic books heroes like Flash Gordon records radio anthems and fascist propaganda But then much of the novel is like looking at someone else s scrapbooks You see what was meaningful to them yet you re still distant from really knowing them Maybe that s the point Then there is the all consuming unconsummated first great love in our past The one you admired from nearby the one who made your reel with vertigo if you got too close to her or him in school We chase after her in all the subseuent relationships of our lives She s always there faceless in the fog of adolescent memory This book is about her as well But I don t imagine anyone besides me wants to know about that girl So you read this book admire the pictures and think about your first crush and then move on Still I did kind of like it
