" . . . not merely interesting and novel, but also exceedingly provocative and heuristically fertile." —The Review of Metaphysics

" . . . essential reading for anyone interesting in . . . the new reader-centered forms of criticism." —Library Journal

In this erudite and imaginative book, Umberto Eco sets forth a dialectic between 'open' and 'closed' texts.
