The Prague Cemetery by Umberto Eco
Part of this is likely due to the fact that Eco took as one of his models the feuilletons of writers such as Hugo, Eugene Sue, and Alexandre Dumas, a genre which I particularly enjoy.
I feel a little more connected by reading a book that is so recent, and it definitely affected how I interpreted the story. It is a manual in how to manipulate, cheat, lie, use others, create a complott or manufacture evidence. A Simonini that in the previous chapter was so critical about Masonnery aims: He was born in Turin in Simonini is a forgerer of documents and an antiques dealer.
Don’t sell someone something they don’t know, sell them what they already believe The scene in the cemetery could only be taken seriously by demented minds as, efo, it was. Set in the eponymous and eerie cemetery in Prague, the manuscript purports to disclose the plans of Jewish leaders for world domination.
Umberto should have been introduced to phrasing- not the Archer kind. OK, so that explains my missing star relegated to the sewer. He finds his calling while apprenticed to a lawyer named Rebaudengo. Just be prepared for a large dose of hate and venom. Dec 21st For fans of Eco: That might be the problem. At least in this web of loosely woven plots, conspiracy is not pragz masterfully directed and highly coordinated effort. Simone Simonini is called upon to help create a political conspiracy by forging a document known as The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.
Simone is now in Sicily. The book has of course some interesting passages it’s Eco after allbut at the end one feels that the story is just a lame pastiche of historical events. Don’t consider it a spoiler that in the afterword, Eco claims that most of this book is true, or as true as can be surmised from a patchwork of historical and circumstantial evidence, and oral history.
But it is in manipulating the text into a multi-level narrative that Eco shows his genius. It opens with a misogynistic, racist, anti-Semitic rant by the main character, Captain Simonini. Finally, we have the mystery surrounding Simonini himself. PS Fl Simone’s name.

Precisely, the book is a documentary from the very beginning to the end relying on the last periods of 19th century Europe where the conspiracies of sects, political groups and states one for another, freemasonry, Jesuits, antisemitism play a central role for the ongoing and further social and political clashes that time, results of which would led to cemejterio world wars and genocide in the entire continent.
The document that becomes The Protocols is but one example of the larger set of conspiracies that bloom in the shadows of European politics.
It has no head and no permanently governing body. This manuscript finally becomes The Protocols of the Elders of Ziona real fraudulent document.

Nov cmenterio, Owlseyes rated it really liked it Shelves: Well, in order to tie all of this together, the story is told by an unidentified narrator who comments wryly on Simonini’s diary which in turn includes disconcerting entries by a third character, the Abbe Dalla Piccola, who may or may not be Simonini’s split personality.
Typical of an Eco book it took me a little while to settle in and fine tune my thoughts to pay proper attention and to relax so that Eco could take me where he wanted me to go. Who things the same I wonder??
