Houston, we have a problem! An anthology-like essay, On Ugliness is as fascinating as its subject, by far more interesting than On beauty. For hours he remained stretched on his bed, now a prey to feverish and agitated wakefulness, now in the grip of oppressive dreams in which he tumbled down flights of stairs and felt himself sinking, powerless, into abysmal depths. Taking one approach, we can look at a quote Eco includes from a novel by J.

It’s not an art history book, it’s not literary criticism, it’s not a philosophical treatise. Nov 15, snobbess sphaeritalius marked it as to-read. Once I realized that they were an essential part of the experience, and not just Umberto Eco overkill, I started really enjoying it. Girl, Wash Your Face: It’s not an art history b This is a difficult book to explain.

Umberto Eco presents a historical compendium of ugliness and horror throughout time. I hated lugging that thing in my knapsack! Eco discusses about a certain author and the a fragment of the text or the image is presented in the next pages, this allows a more immersive reading.

A great read, if you’re so inclined. A great overview of the “ugly” side of art history, with Eco’s commentary deferring to quoted passages from example literature, some obscure, some well-studied.

Eco has used his extensive knowledge of medieval and Renascence art and literature to paint a compelling, profound, and often absurdly amusing picture of the psycho-social mechanisms that define beauty and its op This is an amazing work that exhaustively catalogues the artistic and social concept of ugliness throughout history. This book is like a bible to me. Un mundo de horrores Relectura del Apocalipsis de Juan.

Just as extreme genetic anomalies allow for the examination of the nature of “normalcy” in scientific study, so a study of ideas of ugliness would seem to allow for the scrutinization of aesthetics in general. Tanto los fragmentos antologicos como las extraordinarias ilustraciones de este libro nos llevan, pues, a recorrer un itinerario sorprendente hecho de pesadillas, terrores y amores de casi tres mil anos, donde los sentimientos de repulsa y de conmovedora compasion se dan la mano, y el rechazo de la deformidad va acompanado de extasis decadentes ante las mas seductoras violaciones de todos los canones clasicos.

Next up I’ll be reading his earlier companion treatise “History of Beauty” I figured going in this order would be a hiztoria more cheerful. En las palabras de Umberto Eco Todos los seres en el mundo tienen un significado historiz y simbolizan realidades sobrenaturales por sus actitudes. I’m just going to note my own observations about the book fealddad I honestly don’t know if I would go crazy recommending it to everyone.

Sometimes I pet it. Entre demonios, locos, enemigos terribles y presencias perturbadoras, entre abismos repulsivos y deformidades que rozan lo sublime, navegando entre freaks y fantasmas, se descubre una vena iconogrfica extraordinariamente amplia y a menudo ffaldad.

In short there is everywhere such a great and strange variety of heterogeneous forms that there is more pleasure to be had in reading the marbles than the codices and in spending the whole day admiring one by one these images rather than meditating on the law of God. Still, Eco’s well-read background brings to light some new avenues to look down, some new names to research.

See details for description of any imperfections. The book, however, was very hard to construe. From Richard III’s ‘humpback’ to The Elephant Man, we are as fascinated by the wholly unattractive as we are the attractive, and the darkness we interpret as being held within. The poor kid that leafs through it while visiting you will have nightmares for a good while. Se borra al participar las clases altas de este humor la frontera entre lo decible y lo indecible, hasta que surge Sade, que lleva todo a un escandaloso y desaforado nuevo nivel.

Despite the broad nature of the work, the amazingly erudite Eco manages to connect all of the dots and keep the major concepts and themes flowing seamlessly together as we proceed through this whirlwind tour of aesthetic ideals throughout time. After reading through the beginning, I set the book aside–it definitely doesn’t belong to the popular science genre social science sub-genre that I’d originally assigned it to after reading a synopsis.

Be aware that there is, what I feel to be, an assumed knowledge of Classics and Philosophy as well as Literary and Art History.
