Eco and the forms of serial narration. Some Starting point for a discussion

  • Andrea Bernardelli
Keywords: Umberto Eco, seriality, narration

Abstract

These few pages are meant to start a discussion about Eco’s work on serial narration and its forms, which is the topic of this issue. Obviously, it is at the same time a way to remember Eco as an intellectual, a scholar and a professor, and also an attempt to avoid the banality of an obituary, stimulating new research and continuing his work – an approach he would have liked for sure.
