Ficciones by Jorge Luis Borges( Book )

489 editions published between 1946 and 2014 in 16 languages and held by 5,681 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The seventeen pieces in Ficciones demonstrate the gargantuan powers of imagination, intelligence, and style of one of the greatest writers of this or any other century. Borges sends us on a journey into a compelling, bizarre, and profoundly resonant realm; we enter the fearful sphere of Pascal's abyss, the surreal and literal labyrinth of books, and the iconography of eternal return. More playful and approachable than the fictions themselves are Borges's Prologues, brief elucidations that offer the uninitiated a passageway into the whirlwind of Borges's genius and mirror the precision and potency of his intellect and inventiveness, his piercing irony, his skepticism, and his obsession with fantasy. To enter the worlds in Ficciones is to enter the mind of Jorge Luis Borges, wherein lies Heaven, Hell, and everything in between

"A veces creo que los buenos lectores son cisnes aun mAs tenebrosos y singulares que los buenos autores". 'Jorge Luis Borges En su primer libro de ficciOn, Borges trabaja con biografias de ladrones y rufianes verdaderos; personajes traidores y a veces tambien heroicos. Aqui estAn, entre otros, Lazarus Morell, redentor de esclavos; el impostor Tom Castro, hijo perdido y encontrado; y la viuda y pirata Ching, hAbil en el saqueo de altamar. A estos le siguen "Hombre de la esquina rosada", uno de sus relatos mAs celebrados; y "Etcetera", un testimonio de sus incontables lecturas. Relatos que juegan a falsear y alterar historias ajenas, infundidos con el puro placer de contar cuentos, Historia universal de la infamia anunciO la llegada de una voz literaria totalmente original.

The book of imaginary beings by Jorge Luis Borges( Book )

43 editions published between 1967 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book of imaginary beings is Borges's whimsical compendium of more than a hundred of "the strange creatures conceived down through history by the human imagination." Imbued with Borges's characteristic wit and erudition, this unique contribution to fantasy literature ranges widely across the world's mythologies and literatures to bring together in one delightful encyclopedia the fantastical inventions drawn from the Kabbalah, Homer, Pliny, Confucius, Shakespeare, Lewis Carroll, and C.S. Lewis, among others. Here readers will find the familiar and expected Dragons and Centaurs, Unicorns and Gnomes, as well as the less familiar and altogether unexpected Animals That Live in the Mirror, The Elephant That Prefigured the Birth of Buddha, the Hairy Beast of La Ferte-Bernard, and other undeniably curious creatures. Throughout, Borges's cunning and humorous commentary is sheer delight." "For this new illustrated edition of The Book of Imaginary Beings, Viking has paired Andrew Hurley, the acclaimed translator of Borges's Collected Fictions, with award-winning illustrator Peter Sis, whose original drawings appear throughout the book. The result is a wonderful work - an Alice-Through-the-Looking-Glass menagerie, which should appeal to fantasy fans of all stripes and ages."--Jacket
Doctor Brodie's report by Jorge Luis Borges( Book )

179 editions published between 1960 and 2012 in 13 languages and held by 2,242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the age of seventy, after a gap of twenty years, Jorge Luis Borges returned to writing short stories. In "Brodie's Report," he returned also to the style of his earlier years with its brutal realism, nightmares, and bloodshed. Many of these stories, including "Unworthy" and "The Other Duel," are set in the macho Argentinean underworld, and even the rivalries between artists are suffused with suppressed violence. Throughout, opposing themes of fate and free will, loyalty and betrayal, time and memory flicker in the recesses of these compelling stories, among the best Borges ever wrote

"Though his avowed topic is poetry, Borges explores subjects ranging from prose forms (especially the novel), literary history, and translation theory to philosophical aspects of literature in particular and communication in general. Probably the best-read citizen of the globe in his day, he draws on a wealth of examples from literature in modern and medieval English, Spanish, French, Italian, German, Greek, Latin, Arabic, Hebrew, and Chinese, speaking with characteristic eloquence on Plato, the Norse Kenningar, Byron, Poe, Chesterton, Joyce, and Frost, as well as on translations of Homer, the Bible, and the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam."--Jacket
