Abstract

Author(s): Zennube ?AH?N YILMAZ

Umberto Eco’s novel named ‘Name of Rose’, which marked the period as a postmodern work, deals with a historical period in a fictional structure. The novel, reflecting Eco's novel world, literary creation, is a versatile image with both subjects and people. This image naturally conveys property of a fairly appropriate example of postmodern period literature. In the novel that there is an uncertainty, chaotic environment is dominant in a manner appropriate to postmodern literature. This chaotic environment is also embodied by the narrator's transmission style. Because of this, the novel opens the doors of a complex fiction world, both with its narrator and the subject. Eco presents the medieval as a product of his own imagination in novel. Both people and events are enriched by that Eco takes the fiction as a basic element. The thought world/the point of view of Eco becomes concrete in this fiction world of the novel. In fact, the fictional reality brings together the reader to the position of his true reality.
