The Middle Ages of James Joyce: the Aesthetics of Chaosmos, by Umberto Eco. Pbk. 96 pp. Cover very slightly faded, but otherwise in very good condition.
In this short discussion of the Irish modernist writer, the author establishes a link between the mind of James Joyce and medieval theology. He shows how Joyce's fiction was suffused by his reading of St Thomas Aquinas, Giordano Bruno and Nicola da Cusa and the book creates a dialogue between the saint, the novelist and the critic. The author is best known to the general public as the novelist responsible for "The Name of the Rose"; but as a distinguished and influential academic he has also written "The Role of the Reader" and "The Aesthetics of Thomas Aquinas".
