La 15 ani “poetry is like masturbation”

Wonderfully broad interview with the most interesting theorist and practioner of semiotics in the latter half or the 20th century (and still going!), with significant details. Also including insights into his writings as a novelist, biographical details, etc. Very informative especially for those unfamiliar with his work, or those who have some familiarity and are wondering whether to further pue that interest.

Take-away quote:
“INTERVIEWER
Do you believe in God?
ECO
Why does one love a certain person one day and discover the next day that the love is gone? Feelings, alas, disappear without justification, and often without a trace.”
