Ci sono tante storie su cui varrebbe la pena soffermarsi: The Kabbalists believed that man is a microcosm, a symbolic mirror of the universe; as would everything, according to Tennyson. How much of history is so much smoke and mirrors?

In this last story, the author in person is the protagonist. I will come back to it after I read more and I will be wiser. Published July 27th by Penguin Classics first published September jorgf The Two Kings and the Two Labyrinths This is the short tale quoted by the vicar in the previous story: Divertente come Borges spieghi i suoi racconti come un prestigiatore sveli i propri trucchi: I left her lying stiff among the flowers perfecting her contempt for death.

After many days and having finally freed himself from his bonds, Marcus enters the City of the Immortals.

How she must burden those nurses who spoon-feed her! On his return to Argentina inBorges began publishing his poems and essays in Surrealist literary journals. Lovecroft flirted with Islam in his young adulthood and clearly is familiar with Islamic, particularly Sufi, mythology. In order to lose themselves in God, the Sufis repeat their own name or the ninety-nine names of God until the names mean nothing anymore. As I type these words, I am holding a copy of the photograph by which I mean zhir images of both sides of the photo are set out together on the one side of the sheet of paper; I know, because it was I who created this facsimile with my phone camera and some software I had downloaded onto my computer in my surgically gloved hands.


Borges is a wonderful story-teller.

At one point in the confused night of June 6, Teodolina Villar magically became what she had been twenty years before; her features recovered the authority of that arrogance money, youth, the awareness of being the borgs de la cremerestrictions, a lack of imagination, and stolidity can give. Her story is believed, and the fact of revenge absolves her guilt.

I asked the owner for an orange wl with the change I was given the Zahir; I looked at it for an instant, and then walked outside into the street, perhaps with the beginnings of a fever.

Having spent what appears an eternity underground, Marcus spots a series of metal rungs on a wall leading to a circle of sky.

Whatever is not the Zahir appears to me filtered and distant: It would have been fine had the stories been chunkier, but when I have five or more consecutive lines of undiluted information being dunked into me, I’m more than likely going to have to return to the beginning of the sentence to remind myself what it was originally about. I link that pronouncement to this fact: Her life was exemplary, and yet an inner desperation constantly gnawed at her.

And besides – it pained her to compete with mere insubstantial girls. The sinister dl on Araoz, however, was too much to bear; on June 6, Teodolina Villar qleph the solecism of dying in the middle of Barrio Sur.

This volume also contains the hauntingly brief horges about literary imagination and personal identity collected in The Makerwhich Borges wrote as failing eyesight and public fame began to undermine his sense of self.

From on, she was studiously slim.


The Aleph and Other Stories

Not to say anything important but merely to understand how they depend on one another. Is the erasure of our memory the first step in achieving immortality? After the death of his beloved friend Beatriz Viterbo, Borges does not miss the appointm This book of short tales by Jorge Luis Borges is perhaps the most brilliant compendium of fantastic stories that the author has written. My problem is that, when the mysterious Borges effect fails to manifest, I am left with dense and at times dry prose no doubt intentionally sowhich I have trouble enjoying.

Oh no, there’s been an error

In fact, it was our son who first drew this photograph to my attention. As to failure or fame, they are quite irrelevant and I never bother about them. Weariness halted me at a corner. It is always refreshing and comforting to read the thoughts of a man who has borgges much about life and is willing to share that knowledge.

I am still, albeit only partially, Borges. Finally, Borges shows Daneri indifference and refuses to discuss the observed, simply leaving. Now I know that it may occur at any moment but that it should never be sought after. I must mention the exception: It all starts with the death of actress Teodelina Villar. In sleph, it contained almost everything like an Aleph — the final story in this collection.
