Two rooms have no lettering - the easternmost room, which has an altar, and the central room on the south tower, the so-called finis Africae, which contains the most heavily guarded books, and can only be entered through a secret door. The entrance to the library is in the central room of the east tower, which is connected to the scriptorium by a staircase. Much attention has been paid to the mystery the book's title refers to.
In fact, Eco has stated that his intention was to find a "totally neutral title". They chose The Name of the Rose. The book's last line, "Stat rosa pristina nomine, nomina nuda tenemus" translates as: In this novel, the lost "rose" could be seen as Aristotle 's book on comedy now forever lost , the exquisite library now destroyed, or the beautiful peasant girl now dead.
We only know them by the description Adso provides us — we only have the name of the book on comedy, not its contents. As Adso points out at the end of the fifth day, he does not even know the name of the peasant girl to lament her. Does this mean she does not endure at all?
This text has also been translated as "Yesterday's rose stands only in name, we hold only empty names. Medieval manuscripts of this line are not in agreement but the best read "Roma" instead of "rosa". Roma here introduces a "false" quantity, with a long-o for the Classical short-o; thus, a scribe may have written the "classically impeccable" rosa, which betrays the overall context and flexible prosody of Bernard. Eco quotes one Medieval variant verbatim,  but Eco was not aware at the time of the text more commonly printed in modern editions, in which the reference is to Rome Roma , not to a rose rosa.
Nunc ubi Regulus aut ubi Romulus aut ubi Remus? This translates as "Where now is Regulus, or Romulus, or Remus? Bernard of Cluny, De contemptu mundi: Une vision du monde vers , ed. The historical novel with medieval time setting was re-discovered in Italy a short time before by Italo Alighiero Chiusano , with his L'ordalia.
The name of the central character, William of Baskerville, alludes both to the fictional detective Sherlock Holmes compare The Hound of the Baskervilles — also, Adso's description of William in the beginning of the book resembles, almost word for word, Dr.
Watson's description of Sherlock Holmes when he first makes his acquaintance in A Study in Scarlet and to William of Ockham see the next section. Adso's putative place of origin, Melk, is the site of a famous medieval library, at Melk Abbey. The blind librarian Jorge from labyrinths, mirrors, sects and obscure manuscripts and books. The ending also owes a debt to Borges' short story "Revelation of John to misdirect William, though in Eco's tale, the detective succeeds in solving the crime.
Eco seems also to have been aware of Rudyard Kipling 's short story " The Eye of Allah ," which touches on many of the same themes, like optics, manuscript illumination, music, medicine, priestly authority and the Church's attitude to scientific discovery and independent thought, and which also includes a character named John of Burgos. Throughout the book, there are Latin quotes, authentic and apocryphal.
There are also discussions of the philosophy of Aristotle and of a variety of millenarist heresies, especially those associated with the fraticelli. Numerous other philosophers are referenced throughout the book, often anachronistically, including Wittgenstein.
William of Ockham, who lived during the time at which the novel is set, first put forward the principle known as Ockham's Razor , often summarised as the dictum that one should always accept as most-likely the simplest explanation that accounts for all the facts a method used by William of Baskerville in the novel.
The book describes monastic life in the 14th century. The action takes place at a Benedictine abbey during the controversy surrounding the Apostolic poverty between branches of Franciscans and Dominicans ; see renewed controversy on the question of poverty.
The book highlights this tension that existed within Christianity during the medieval era: A number of the characters, such as the Inquisitor Bernard Gui as Bernardo Gui , Ubertino of Casale and the Minorite Michael of Cesena as Michele da Cesena , are historical figures, though the novel's characterization of them is not always historically accurate.
Dante Alighieri and his Comedy are mentioned once in passing. However, Eco notes in a companion book that he had to site the monastery in mountains so it would experience early frosts, in order for that action to take place at a time when the historical Bernard Gui could have been in the area. For the purposes of the plot, Eco needed a quantity of pig blood, but at that time pigs were not usually slaughtered until a frost had arrived.
Later in the year, Gui was known to have been away from Italy and could not have participated in the events at the monastery. A book that succeeded on many levels.
But how does one capitalize of such an unexpected success? Mark Twain followed Tom Sawver with a slew of spin-offs, some, like Huckleberry Finn, classics in their own right: others, like Tom Sawyer, Detective, obvious efforts to keep the Clemens' larder well-stocked at a minimum of effort. Mystery writers are especially prone to follow an exceptional early work with loads of lesser stories. Ellery Queen's later books, or, more recently, the sorry sequels Gregory Mcdonald wrote for Fletch, show writers struggling to regain the spark they had the first time around.
Eco, however, is not a pulp novelist but an intellectual by trade.
A semiotics expert and James Joyce scholar at the University of Bologna, his Postscript to the Name of the Rose is largely a discussion of the thought he put into the first book.
