Email Address: Article Id: The Name of the Rose Italian: Il nome della rosa is the debut novel by Italian author Umberto Eco. It is a historical murder mystery set in an Italian monastery , in the year , an intellectual mystery combining semiotics in fiction, biblical analysis, medieval studies, and literary theory. It was translated into English by William Weaver in Franciscan friar William of Baskerville and his novice Adso of Melk travel to a Benedictine monastery in Northern Italy to attend a theological disputation. As they arrive, the monastery is disturbed by a suicide.

A number of the characters, such as the Inquisitor Bernard Gui as Bernardo Gui , Ubertino of Casale and the Minorite Michael of Cesena as Michele da Cesena , are historical figures, though the novel's characterization of them is not always historically accurate.

Dante Alighieri and his Comedy are mentioned once in passing. However, Eco notes in a companion book that he had to site the monastery in mountains so it would experience early frosts, in order for that action to take place at a time when the historical Bernard Gui could have been in the area. For the purposes of the plot, Eco needed a quantity of pig blood, but at that time pigs were not usually slaughtered until a frost had arrived.

Later in the year, Gui was known to have been away from Italy and could not have participated in the events at the monastery.

Umberto Eco - Monoskop

Part of the dialogue in the inquisition scene of the novel is lifted bodily from the historical Gui's own Manual for Inquisitors, the Practica Inquisitionis Heretice Pravitatis, for example the dialogue: "What do you believe?

This is an example given by the historical Gui in his book to warn inquisitors against the slipperiness and manipulation of words by heretics. This use of Gui's own book by Eco is self-consciously of a piece with his perspective that "books always speak of other books.

Adso's description of the portal of the monastery is recognizably that of the portal of the church at Moissac, France. There is also a quick reference to a famous "Umberto of Bologna" — Umberto Eco himself. Ravensburger published an eponymous boardgame in , written by Stephan Feld and is based on the events of the book.

An adventure video game adaptation titled, Murder in the Abbey , was developed by Alcachofa Soft and published by DreamCatcher Interactive. Music The British rock band Ten released the album The Name of the Rose , whose eponymous track is loosely based around some of the philosophical concepts of the novel. Mystery writers are especially prone to follow an exceptional early work with loads of lesser stories. Ellery Queen's later books, or, more recently, the sorry sequels Gregory Mcdonald wrote for Fletch, show writers struggling to regain the spark they had the first time around.

Eco, however, is not a pulp novelist but an intellectual by trade.

A semiotics expert and James Joyce scholar at the University of Bologna, his Postscript to the Name of the Rose is largely a discussion of the thought he put into the first book. Rather than offer us further adventures of his protagonists. In a volume shorter than even its paltry 84 pages would suggest, Eco chats with us over the meaning of the book's title and more The book's theme raises enough coffee-table questions to run up a sizable bill at the Pamplona: "How much should an author identify with his characters?
