Description
Information
'Jorge Luis Borges is a great writer who has composed only little essays or short narratives. Yet they suffice for us to call him great', writes Andre Maurois in his Preface to this collection of stories, essays and parables. 'He creates outside time and space, imaginary and symbolic worlds... Of the metaphysicians of Tlon he (Borges) writes: "They seek neither truth nor likelihood; they seek astonishment. They think metaphysics is a branch of the literature of fantasy." That rather well defines the greatness and the art of Borges'.
'This dazzling prose of his, so cold it burns one's lips... pulling us (Latin Americans) out of our discrete compartments and hurling us out into the world.'
Carlos Fuentes

'He is a writer I cannot stand. And yet I love the violin he makes use of for expressing himself.'
Gabriel Garcia Marquez
