Now that he’s dead, too.In the virtually unlimited world of the internet several new generation readers await Eco These are the long-term winners tribes of gamers who will not only be thrilled by Eco’s arcane mystery stories but are sure to provide him with glittering new disguises If you have played video games such as Assassin’s Creed you’ll know what I mean Consider this: Eco has joked that Dan Brown and his gripping concoctions of Knights Templars monastic sects and secrets is actually a character out of Foucault’s Pendulum “who might not even exist” except as Eco’s own creation In short Eco seems to suggest that the phenomenal popularity of books like The Da Vinci Code shouldn’t obscure the fact that it’s based on a template he first created This heady hybrid genre combining a scholarly passion for Latin Greek Christianity and the Middle Ages with an addiction to gritty American crime serials like Starsky and Hutch and Miami Vice appears wonderfully translatable into sophisticated new forms of animation As Eco put it himself writing Foucault’s Pendulum was “like a video game in which I might take up the personality of a war-rior and enter a sort of magical kingdom” So I’m betting that a decade from now there’ll be quite a few interactive game versions of Eco’s “magical” mod-medieval fantasies of detection This is just one small aspect of his manifold immortality that adaptive ability of the deep literary mind to survive post-death I remember vividly the first time I saw Eco It was the mid-1980s and one of those endless conferences characteristic of Europe’s arduous academic summers was in progress at the seaside resort of Viareggio Italy of course was Eco’s own stamping ground and the hall was packed for the master When he spoke fascinatingly as I remember about the semiotics of travel and train journeys as narratives there was a hushed silence After all the stage-setting though the irony lay in a triviality Eco had in hand that classic professorial prop — an unlit pipe Beneath him on the lower stage a huge banner warned “Do Not Smoke” From his elevated position Eco couldn’t possibly read the injunction So would he light that forbidden pipe or wouldn’t he And in the end he did — the smoke billowing in great rich white curls over his head and drifting in graceful innocence across the stage Dramatic irony The hero does the forbidden thing out of ignorance in full view of a tension-ridden audience that knows The next time I met Eco was in Beijing nearly 20 years later A small group of Indian academics had been invited to take part in a “Transcultura” seminar where we were to speak of cultural difference of “otherness” Odd facts I’d read about Eco drift through my head during our passing conversation at dinner — that he’d been part of Mussolini’s youth brigade that his grandfather was a foundling that he’d once smoked 60 cigarettes a day that he lived in a 17th century manor house near remote Urbino All this in the defamiliarising setting of China should have made him truly my “other” Curiously it did not Eco was still the big unsmiling man with his Magritte pipe I remembered from Viareggio making no concession to the fact that all that smoking would surely finish him one day It was then I realised that death has its limitations It can only defeat those who have little sense of irony or tragedy Eco had both in full measure That is what makes him a literary hero for all seasons The writer is professor Department of Humanities and Social Sciences IIT Delhi For all the latest Opinion News
