SUMMARY Il cimitero di Praga

FREE DOWNLOAD Ê Il cimitero di Praga READ ☆ LOUISVUITTON--UK.CO.UK È Umberto Eco SUMMARY Il cimitero di Praga Nineteenth century Europe from Turin to Prague to Paris abounds with the ghastly and the mysterious Conspiracies rule history Jesuits plot against Freemasons Italian republicans strangle priests with their own intestines French criminals plan bombings by day and celebrate Black Masse. In the 1980s I read The Name of the Rose and Foucault s Pendulum and came away from those books knowing that I had been exposed to a brilliant mind The complexity of the writing and the layers of plot turned many readers away but I found it so refreshing to have a writer that demanded from his readers and importantly had faith in his readership These are books that need to be read many times and each time the reader will develop a better understanding of the writer s intentions This brings me to The Prague Cemetery Typical of an Eco book it took me a little while to settle in and fine tune my thoughts to pay proper attention and to relax so that Eco could take me where he wanted me to go This book is set in 19th century Europe and explores the underlying conspiracies that surround a series of warsconflicts that instead of being the work of a group is the nefarious dealings of one man This man is Simone Simonini He is a murderer double agent triple agent but importantly he is the man that can provide the documentation that proves that one side of a conflict is justified in their uest for power In other words he is a master forger He finds his calling while apprenticed to a lawyer named Rebaudengo He learns the fine art of providing the missing paperwork for a baptismal record that would allow an inheritance to be obtained or the missing will of a family patriarch who may have perished unexpectedly Rebaudengo explained What I produce are not forgeries but new copies of genuine documents that have been lost or by simple oversight have never been produced and that could and should have been producedSimone becomes so good at the craft that he realizes that the only person between him and a very lucrative income is his mentor Rebaudengo The proper paperwork miraculously is produced that exposes a fraud perpetrated by Rebaudengo and he is swiftly convicted and sent to prison Simone is the type of gentleman that governments find uses for and he is greedy enough not to be worried about the conseuences of his actions He becomes a forger mercenary for hire He provides documents that fan the flames of racism and cultism that leads to genocide and in one case the temporary toppling of a foreign government He steals from his employers and from his agents working both sides of the euation to net as much money as possible for himself He is a man without a moral compass except in the case of Abbe Dalla Piccola Piccola became an inconvenience for Simone during one of his clandestine missions and Simone as he tended to do when cleaning up a problem killed him Simone becomes unknowingly to himself so out of sorts over the murder of Piccola that Piccola is actually resurrected in his own mind creating for a time a split personality Simone becomes aware of the Abbe as they begin sharing a diary and the missing time that Simone is experience is revealed in the dairy entries made by the Piccola personality The book is liberally sprinkled with sketches of the characters involved really evoking a Victorian Dickens feel to the novel I found this book much accessible than other Eco novels and actually laughed out loud a couple of times Back in 2000 I had planned to meet Umberto Eco He was touring for Baudolino and was planning to come to the West Coast Unfortunately due to health reasons he only finished his East Coast engagements and did not come to California I had spent my last lira appropriating a copy of The Name of the Rose for him to sign which now would be worth around 800 signed by the author Well I may not have an 800 copy but I am still

I like to try to pretend I m not a literature snob I like to try to pretend that all I care about in a book is a good story that genres are meaningless and that authors who are experimental or who go to great lengths to show off their vast intellects are generally trouble than they are worth I like peeling back the layers of hype and praise piled upon popular books and to get at the soft nougat of story at the centre and judge it based on the uality of that aloneExcept all that pretending not to be pretentious falls apart the moment I have to talk about Umberto EcoI can t uite call him my favourite author because that is an absolute I don t feel comfortable using How does one necessarily compare and rank two authors whose style and range are completely different No Eco is not my all time favourite but he is unuestionably a writer of the highest calibre a literary juggernaut with all the pretentious baggage such a label implies Whenever I read something by Umberto Eco I am always struck by how incredibly smart he is His books are practically saturated with knowledge and intellect in such a way that I am immediately confronted with how little I know and I love that feeling More importantly Eco doesn t make me feel stupid as a result of this ignorance Instead his books display an evident love for knowledge a joy for life and literature a feeling so close to what I feel when I read that it s probably not a surprise I would feel so at home with these booksFor my fourth annual Eco read I chose The Prague Cemetery purely because it was published in English this year I feel a little connected by reading a book that is so recent and it definitely affected how I interpreted the story The Prague Cemetery seems almost from the beginning like it is accessible than some of Eco s other novels It certainly isn t as lengthy or as dense as The Name of the Rose or Foucault s Pendulum Yet there is a dark and very difficult aspect to The Prague Cemetery that almost made me hesitate with itThis book is venomous It opens with a misogynistic racist anti Semitic rant by the main character Captain Simonini Simonini an expatriate Italian living in France as a forger and sometime espionage expert begins recounting his childhood in Italy in the form of a diary We learn the genesis of his hatred for Jews his first involvement in forgery and espionage and eventually how he came to end up in Paris France This autobiographical narrative is as fascinating as it is repugnant Simonini s anti Semitism latches onto everything he touches spreading into his every endeavour like a virulent and pernicious weed I found several passages difficult to read because Eco does not cut corners and does not hold back he creates a main character who is in no uncertain times unlikable and unsympathetic And I still somehow found myself hoping he wouldn t get killed He is really bad at the espionage thingThen we come to chapter 5 in which the narration gets taken up by Abb Dalla Piccola And here s where it gets interesting Who is Piccola Is he an alter ego of Simonini s Or is he a person in his own right Simonini keeps waking with gaps in his memories and reading these notes from Piccola whose apartment is connected to his by a long dank corridor filled with makeup and costumes Yet as Simonini recalls his life story there are mentions of a Piccola external to him And so the identities of Simonini and Piccola and their relationship is ambiguous at least at first Ultimately Eco resolves it with uncharacteristic clarity Until then however Piccola along with the Narrator complete the novel s triumvirate of unreliable narrative voices Together these two manage to balance out the vitriolic Simonini and make the narrative interestingThe Prague Cemetery is intimately connected to European history particularly that of Italy Germany and France in the late nineteenth century Those of us whose educations are sorely lacking in this area will feel somewhat lost which is why Wikipedia is such a valuable resource Reading about the unification of Italy and France under Napoleon III gave me a glimpse into why Eco might be so fascinated by conspiracy theory Sensationalist rhetoric of authors like Dan Brown aside conspiracy underpins much of European history never far away as one reads about the intricate intrigue that brought down kings and ueens priests and pontiffs And Eco places Simonini right in the middle of it first embedding him with the Carbonari and Garibaldi s red shorts then transplanting him to France on the eve of the Franco Prussian warSimonini s experience as a forger means that his superiors expected him to produce evidence that would support the agenda of the month Communists socialists or monarchists it didn t matter you name them and Simonini would fabricate something to implicate them He goes as far as actually constructing conspiracies of his own in order to expose them to his superiors Simonini is delightfully devious much too devious in fact for his own good He invariably incurs the displeasure of his superiors which is why he found himself in France in the first placeUltimately Simonini becomes obsessed with marketing a manuscript This manuscript finally becomes The Protocols of the Elders of Zion a real fraudulent document Set in the eponymous and eerie cemetery in Prague the manuscript purports to disclose the plans of Jewish leaders for world domination This is Simonini s masterpiece a story woven from ideas culled from fiction and non fiction throughout the past century created in such a way as to appear legitimate enough for those who might have a use for anti Semitic propaganda And though he knows it is his own fabrication Simonini is utterly convinced of the document s veracity in spirit He does not doubt that a Zionist conspiracy for world domination exists and is in motion and so he feels justified in manufacturing evidence that exposes this truth Eco brilliantly takes us into the mind of a conspiracy theorist and an anti Semite exposing the psychology of such a personThe document that becomes The Protocols is but one example of the larger set of conspiracies that bloom in the shadows of European politics Through Simonini we see how various groups from intelligence offices to the Jesuits make use of conspiracy theories and propaganda to suit their own ends essentially Eco weaves conspiracies about conspiracies And the most successful participants in these political games are those who do not have or at least do not indulge their personal enmities toward different groups Simonini s passionate hatred of Jews is a liability because it warps his every action and provides a motivation that could sometimes be political inconvenient Even as his Russian contacts discuss using the Jews as scapegoats because they happen to be around Simonini s French handler initially tells him that they aren t interested in pursuing anti Semitic propaganda for now There s a cold blooded calculated ruthless side to all this hate speech that often seems to get lost at least in my opinion when viewed through the lens of the world after the Second World War For some of these people hating Jews wasn t personal it was just part of the job and only when expedientAlthough it ends about thirty years prior to the rise of the Nazis The Prague Cemetery foreshadows the rising wave of anti Semitism in Europe World War II is rather like a singularity in that sometimes it is difficult to look at the history leading up to it and not be influenced by what came after We concentrated so much on anti Semitism during and after World War II that we never really discussed how it was already a regular feature in Europe by the time Hitler came on the scene So I appreciate being reminded of this fact and seeing a depiction of anti Semitic attitudes prior to the Holocaust The Prague Cemetery offers an interesting historical perspective in addition to all its fascinating fixations with conspiracy and religionFinally we have the mystery surrounding Simonini himself Who is he and how is he related to the Abb Dalla Piccola The Prague Cemetery reminded me of The Island of the Day Before Both feature a character who might be imaginary in both the narrative is the reconstruction by an unnamed Narrator of papers written by the main character And there are echoes of Eco s other works as well his recurring themes running strongly throughout this book For all that is recognizably Eco however The Prague Cemetery remains fresh and original Eco s books are difficult There s no uestion about that I mean he s a semiotician so he is fascinated by symbols and meaning and that s obvious from the way his works experiment with the nature of storytelling and of fiction itself In his postscript to The Name of the Rose he talks about how the first hundred pages were designed to construct the reader he needed for the rest of the novel and yeah that s a little condescending So I can see why people would be unwilling to invest the mental effort needed to digest Eco s books and I don t blame them But you don t know what you might be missing until you try So at the risk of destroying my illusions that I am anything other than a literature snob I have to extol Umberto Eco as a writer Because for me the feeling I get reading an Eco book is as close to the feeling I imagine I should have reading any book I don t know if that makes any sense there s just something about the way Eco writes that makes me hyper aware of the act of reading yet does not detract from my enjoyment of the text itself Eco s books embody the pleasure that should be implicit in the act of reading and I can think of no higher praise to give a writer One Good Man lone man What if that evil
