  • review: An in-depth visitation on a variety of topics all related to 'semiotics', Eco takes a dense deep dive into what is the meaning of things that we see and experience in culture. Focused in most cases on the American imperialist impact (consequence of globalisation - everything veers towards Americanism), the essays unpack a dense narrative that risks the key points been lost amidst sentences. Good read, but lots to unpack.,
