In Praise of Darkness.
by Borges, Jorge Luis.

Publisher Information:
Alan Lane, Penguin,, London:: 1975..

A Fine copy in a Near Fine unclipped dust jacket with just a touch of edge wear to one corner. This collection of poems and prose pieces reveal a laconic voice found in Borges' earliest works. In "In Praise of Darkness" the Argentine master of historical spoof, exotic violence, of mirrors, labyrinths and the circular ruins that lead us to the border of knowledge, has again taken us to the instant of recognition--where he stops, stationing us in mystery, in order to save us from false knowledge. As in all Borges, the events outside are a whimsical journey to the paradox of self-discovery.This English translation also features the definitive Spanish language text.
