Ficciones by Jorge Luis Borges( Book )

561 editions published between 1944 and 2019 in 12 languages and held by 5,495 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

El aleph by Jorge Luis Borges( Book )

Originalmente publicada en 1949, esta coleccion reune dieciocho relatos entre los que se encuentra algunos de los mas admirados cuentos de la literatura: "El Aleph," la clasica historia de una resplandeciente esfera en la que confluyen de un modo asombroso todos los tiempos y todos los espacios en el universo; "El Zahir," una fascinante reflexion sobre la obsesion, Borges narra la historia de un objeto que inspira la fascinacion inmediata de todos aquellos que lo ven hasta consumir su atencion y realidad completa; y "El Inmortal," un inquietante viaje a traves de la Ciudad de los Inmortales, un laberintico mundo en el que todo, incluso los edificios y las escaleras, aparece caoticamente irregular o invertido
A universal history of infamy by Jorge Luis Borges( Book )

236 editions published between 1935 and 2017 in 11 languages and held by 2,582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his writing, Borges always combined high seriousness with a wicked sense of fun. Here he reveals his delight in re-creating (or making up) colorful stories from the Orient, the Islamic world, and the Wild West, as well as his horrified fascination with knife fights, political and personal betrayal, and bloodthirsty revenge. Spark-ling with the sheer exuberant pleasure of story-telling, this collection marked the emergence of an utterly distinctive literary voice
The book of imaginary beings by Jorge Luis Borges( Book )

59 editions published between 1967 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 2,256 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

This craft of verse by Jorge Luis Borges( Book )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 1,059 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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
