Historia de la fealdad-Umberto Eco | Ceciilia Gabriiela –

Eco shows at length that the things a given society find hideous or disgusting often reveal much about the neurosis, fears, and prejudices of its people. This seemingly simple observation is rendered more potent when Eco examines modern perceptions of beauty and contrast them those of the past. In other words, beauty is about contemplation, is about disinterested emotion. Topics range from Milton’s Satan to Goethe’s Mephistopheles; from witchcraft and medieval torture tactics to martyrs, hermits, and penitents; from lunar births and disemboweled corpses to mythic monsters and sideshow freaks; and from Decadentism and picturesque ugliness to the tacky, kitsch, and camp, and the aesthetics of excess and vice.

Umberto Eco begins On Ugliness with the observation that there is an entire history of beauty but such a history did not happen with ugliness. Different people will enjoy or dislike this book for different reasons. Is ugliness also in the eye of the beholder?

Again, the ugly is very much part of our day to day experience and a living nightmare is forever looming.

Worse are the times when we’re pretending to sleep and I think those hands are going to embrace my belly which I umbeto feels delightfully like the butt-feel he prefers but he cautiously fraldad them up, trying to find a flab-free place between my tummy and my boobs and they just wind up hiding under the shelf of my jugs like he’s just forcing his decorated fingers to crouch there until it stops raining and he’ll use them to exactingly fold laundry, to hsitoria all the husky dry skins off a barrel-full of shallots searching for ones that meet his approval This is a coffee-table history book; I was immediately disappointed when I received the book due to the thickness, the tiny size of the font, and the large number of pictures that were included.

A great overview of the “ugly” side of art history, with Eco’s commentary deferring to quoted passages from example literature, some obscure, some well-studied.


Once I realized that they were an essential part of the experience, and not just Umberto Eco overkill, I started really enjoying it. Then I made a mess — wet stuff and ashes — on his sheets in his new apartment and felt like I was some grotesque thing from the book come to life, fucking up the prissy wizard artist order he’s trying to establish there. Utilizando el concepto de diabolus in musica, Eco concluye 3 cosas: Ugliness is compelling; as much as we claim to revile the ugly, it seems we cannot look feadad.
