Jorge Luis Borges: Sources and Illumination.
by [Borges, Jorge Luis] Giovanna de Garayalde.

Publisher Information:
Octagon Press, London: 1978.

A Fine copy in a Fine unclipped dust jacket with sunning to jacket spine. This is an important book for anyone interested in the work of the great Argentinian writer, Jorge Luis Borges. Prof. Garayalde settles many of the puzzles and misinterpretations of his works in a very concise and convincing account both of the Sufis and their work--with which she became familiar long before she approached Borges' own--and of the many parallels in ideas and in actual tales that are included in his work. This is an ideal introduction to Sufi thought for anyone who is searching for a greater understanding of life and literature.
