Robin Fiddian analyses the development of a postcolonial sensibility in works such as \'Mythical Founding of Buenos Aires\', \'Tlon, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius\', \'Theme of the Traitor and the Hero\', and \'Brodie\'s Report\'. He examines Borges\'s treatment of national and regional identity, and of East-West relations, in several essays and poems, contained, for example, in Other Inquisitions and Seven Nights. The theoretical concepts of \'coloniality\' and \'Occidentalism\' shed new light on several works by Borges, who acquires a sharper political profile than previously acknowledged. Fiddian pays special attention to Oriental subjects in Borges\'s works of the 70s and 80s, where their treatment is bound up with a critique of Occidental values and assumptions. 0Classified by some commentators over the years ago as a precursor of post-colonialism, Borges in fact emerges as a prototype of the postcolonial intellectual exemplified by James Joyce, Aime Cesaire (for example), and Edward Said. From a regional perspective, his repertoire of geopolitical and historical concerns resonates with those of Leopoldo Zea, Enrique Dussel, Eduardo Galeano, and Joaquin Torres, who illustrate different strands and kinds of Latin American post-colonialism(s) of the twentieth century. At the same time, manifest differences in respect of political and artistic temperament mark Borges out as a postcolonial intellectual and creative writer who is sui generis.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/4089413813<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:genre<\/a> \"Criticism, interpretation, etc.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:name<\/a> \"Postcolonial Borges.
