Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

Jorge Luis Borges was one of those very rare creators who changed the face of an art form--in his case, the short story. His work has been paid the ultimate honor of being appropriated and imitated by innumerable writers on every continent of the world.

The seventeen brief masterpieces of FICIONES explode the boundaries of genre, offering up labyrinthine libraries, a fictional encyclopedia entry that spawns an entire world, a review of a nonexistent writer's attempt to re-create Don Quixote word for word, a man with the disabling inability to forget anything he has ever experienced, and other metaphysical puzzles. But the true measure of Borges's greatness lies in the fact that his fictions--elaborately paradoxical, postmodern, and intellectually delicious as they are--managed to return the short story to the realm of the fabulous and the uncanny from which, as parable and fairy tale, it originally came.
