Test: The Interview- 1 - Question 7

What satisfied Umberto's taste for narration?

Detailed Solution for Test: The Interview- 1 - Question 7 Umberto Eco was essentially an academician who pursued his scholarly pursuits through academic writings. He wrote about forty non¬fictions and as he himself says, ‘he became a novelist by accident’. That was the reason he started writing novels at the age of almost fifty. Eco considers himself ‘a university professor who writes novels (only) on Sundays’. He is not even very sure about any one single reason for the huge success of his novel ‘The Name of the Rose’. He feels perhaps the timing of the novel’s publication was the most important factor of its success. The fact that at one level it appears to be a detective yarn but also delves into metaphysics, theology and medieval history also adds to its appeal. Though the novel is quite a heavy reading experience, it attracted a mass audience and made Eco popular more as a novelist rather than an academic scholar.

Test: The Interview- 1 - Question 10

How many scholarly works are to his credit?

Detailed Solution for Test: The Interview- 1 - Question 10 Umberto Eco prefers himself to be called an academician rather than a novelist. He wrote more than 40 philosophical writings against just five novels. He started writing novels just by accident and that too at a late age of 50. Modesty and honesty are the signs of a great writer like Eco. Mukund Padmanabhan asks the reason behind the huge success of ‘The Name of the Rose’. Umberto honestly replies that the success of this novel is a mystery even to him. Perhaps, he wrote it at an appropriate time. Had it been written 10 years before or after, perhaps it wouldn’t have been such a huge success.
