Jorge Luis Borges – Collected Fictions

Jorge Luis Borges – Collected Fictions

Beautiful. The Argentine writer’s short stories collected in one volume. The imagery redounds with old architecture, labyrinths, dusty old books and libraries, warm, muggy nights with open windows and overgrown plants, lucid dreams, philosophical conceits, and the people, real and imagined, who personify them. Highlights include the Library of Babel, a method-style rewriting of Don Quixote, and the Aleph, plus a few gaucho Westerns for good measure.
