Although his work has been restricted to the short story, the essay, and poetry, Jorge Luis Borges of Argentina is recognized all over the world as one of the most original figures in modern literature. Labyrinths is a representative selection of Borges' writing, drawn from books published over the years, with one of the most famous being the short story The Library of Babel, in which he imagines an infinite library filled with every book written, not yet written, and every combination of words and letters in between.
