Borges

He was not working for posterity or even for God, whose literary tastes were unknown to him


The Borges Bookstore
Amazon.com claims to be the largest bookstore in the world; and indeed browsing their awesome inventory lends support to this claim. As an Amazon.com Associate, I have provided this page to serve as a mirror of their catalog for Borges and Borges-related titles. Clicking on a book will take you out of the Libyrinth and to Amazon.com, where you may read a brief description of that work -- there is no obligation to buy. You may either return to The Garden of Forking Paths or shop around at Amazon.com. If you purchase a book, it will be shipped to your home usually within a week, unless it's a special order -- those usually take longer. If the title you are after does not appear below, feel free to use the Search Engine at the end of the page.

Borges and His Fiction: A Guide to His Mind and Art (Texas Pan American Series)
Gene H. Bell-Villada / Hardcover / Published 2000
Our Price: $45.00
"Since its first publication in 1981, Borges and His Fiction has introduced the life and works of this Argentinian master-writer to an entire generation of students, high school and college teachers, and general readers. Responding to a steady demand for an updated edition, Gene H. Bell-Villada has significantly revised and expanded the book to incorporate new information that has become available since Borges' death in 1986. In particular, he offers a more complete look at Borges and Peronism and Borges' personal experiences of love and mysticism, as well as revised interpretations of some of Borges' stories. As before, the book is divided into three sections that examine Borges' life, his stories in Ficciones and El Aleph, and his place in world literature."
