Beschreibung

The seventeen pieces in "Ficciones" demonstrate the whirlwind of Borges's genius and mirror the precision and potency of his intellect and inventiveness, his piercing irony, his skepticism, and his obsession with fantasy. Borges sends us on a journey into a compelling, bizarre, and profoundly resonant realm; we enter the fearful sphere of Pascal's abyss, the surreal and literal labyrinth of books, and the iconography of eternal return. To enter the worlds in "Ficciones" is to enter the mind of Jorge Luis Borges, wherein lies Heaven, Hell, and everything in between.

Pressestimmen

"Without Borges the modern Latin American novel simply would not exist." -Carlos Fuentes
"In resounding the note of the marvelous last struck in English by Wells and Chesterson, in permitting infinity to enter and distort his imagination, [Borges] has lifted fiction away from the flat earth where most of our novels and short stories still take place." -John Updike
"These brief "Ficciones" have to be read one at a time, and slowly; then they throb with uncanny and haunting power" -"The Atlantic Monthly"
"Borges is the most important Spanish-language writer since Cervantes." -Mario Vargas Llosa
"[Borges] engages the heart as well as the intelligence; his genius strikes, undismayed as Theseus, through the labyrinths of our life and time to the accomplishment of new, inspiring and stunningly beautiful work." -John Barth
"One of the finest, subtlest, and least appreciated of comedians...[Borges is] a central fact of Western culture." -"The Washington Post Book World"
"Borges's composed, carefully wrought, gnarled style is at once the means of his art and its object--his way of ordering and giving meaning to the bizarre and terrifying world he creates: it is a brilliant, burnished instrument, and it is quite adequate to the extreme demands his baroque imagination makes of it . . . . Absolutely and most vividly original."
--"Saturday Review"
