Product description

Best known for postmodernist fiction like 'The Name of the Rose', Umberto Eco, the Sherlock Holmes of semiotics, is constantly blurring the boundaries between high and low culture. Here we see football as a metaphor, a motif and a vehicle for interpreting the human fascination with ideals.
