Abstract:

This book offers a representative selection of the best criticism so far devoted to the writings of the Argentine master, Jorge Luis Borges. It begins with the editor's introduction, originally published in 1969, but presenting a view of both the strength and limitations of Borges' achievement that still seems valid today. The volume then reprints, in chronological order of publication, a major sequence of what can be called Borgesian receptions. - Editor's note.

Borges is a great theorist of poetic influence; he has taught us to read Browning as a precursor of Kafka, and in the spirit of this teaching we may see Borges himself as another Childe Roland coming to the Dark Tower, while consciously not desiring to accomplish the Quest. - Harold Bloom, on back cover.

A collection of critical essays on Jorge Luis Borges and his work arranged in chronological order of publication.
