The world spiritually impoverished, when such people leave. For me, Umberto Eco - especially stunning philosopher and essayist. Huge loss!

Yesterday died Harper Lee, author of the novel "To Kill a Mockingbird."

My acquaintance with Italian literature began virtually with these two products, not including Italo Calvino and his "Baron in the Trees". Very talented and deep person. It's a pity ((.

I saw the film on his novel, and now count the novel "In the Name of the Rose" and others. The dark times of the Inquisition. All the same, the church in the Middle Ages reigns under the laws, as well as today vprochem.menya in the Middle Ages would certainly burned at the stake for what that small riot.

For me, Eko was something eternal and immutable, stunning intellectual, philosopher, semiologist writer ... I've read all his novels and many of the essays. It is waiting for the release of his latest book ... I admit, I cried when I heard about his death because he was really a person, a worthy representative of Italy in the age of jumping jacks. I wanted to go to his lectures at the University of Bologna, but has not happened ... All week my A2V1 level students I spend a lesson on Umberto Eco ...
