Illuminating Eco covers the range of British scholarship on the prolific literary and theoretical work of Umberto Eco.
With essays by scholars such as Michael Caesar and David Robey, the volume provides an overview of current research being carried out by a new generation of academics. In addition it provides an opportunity to view the interaction between Eco's fiction and his theoretical texts and suggests future avenues of research. the interdisciplinary nature of the contributions makes this collection accessible to Italianists and non-Italian speakers alike in order to situate Eco's work in the wider literary and critical sphere.
