Summary
From Homer's poems to contemporary science fiction, literature through the ages has continuously invented imaginary and legendary lands, projecting there all those dreams and nightmares that are too intrusive and challenging for daily reality. Umberto Eco leads us on an illustrated journey through these distant lands, introducing us to their inhabitants, their heroes and villains, the passions and preoccupations that shaped them, always mindful of the continued importance of myth and legend to modern life and conciousness
