Review

'This is the most up-to-date study thus far of Borges's place in contemporary culture. The influence exerted by the Argentine master on literature and criticism stretches far and wide over three continents, and Rex Butler does a fine job of tracing in detail a rich and ongoing legacy.'
- Gene H. Bell-Villada, Williams College, USA, author of Borges and His Fiction: A Guide to His Mind and Art

A drifting pile of thoughts about Borges. Nothing directly from Borges. The book was repetitive and irritating with its lack of focus and complete absence of any intellectual depth.

Format: Paperback
The signature story 'Borges and I' is one I have read many times and love very much. Yet only through reading the commentary of this work did I understand the real nature of the game being played by the writer Borges with the person Borges. So too in reading of Borges early years I got a more complete understanding of the various aspects of his background influenced by his nationalist Spanish loving mother and his father who had the English library that would be the great source of revelation and pleasure to Borges throughout his life. In short reading this commentary gives wonderful insight into one of the most original writers the world has known. Borges' various fictional worlds are clearly and imaginatively explored in this outstanding commentary.
