Publisher's Synopsis

This collection gathers Eco's main writings on mass culture published in a wide variety of journals and newspapers from the mid-50s to the late 1980s. Opening with an anti-Adornian survey of theories of mass culture, Eco goes on to explore such exotica as La Cicciolina, Charlie Brown, Orwell, Fellini, Italian independent radio and the 'genius industry'. Umberto Eco is a semiologist and medievalist, and is the author of 'The Name of the Rose' and 'Faith in Fakes'.
