This paper quotes two of Umberto Ecos' non-fiction works on semiotics and his well-known fiction work, "In the Name of the Rose," as a reference to his use of semiotics as metaphorical and pluralistic tools. The paper includes quotes from both the fiction and non-fiction works. The paper uses one book by Christina La Rocca as an extra historic reference with regards to monastic life and miscellaneous facts about medieval Italy.
From the Paper:"A common theme in literature and a universal, human obsession is the thin line that exists between honesty and deception, illusion and truth. There is a certain author who is noted for his fiction and non-fiction work on the subject, Umberto Eco. He often uses artistic examples, such as art and literature, to explain and discuss how we use words, mannerisms and other signals as a culture to communicate. According to Eco, the concepts of honesty and fallacy are much more multifaceted then simply being truthful or telling a lie. They are also social constructs that influence our language, behavior and other means of communication."
