Borges, Jorge Luis.
Borges: A Reader: The Selected Works of Jorge Luis Borges.
A Near Fine copy with a previous owner's name on the flyleaf in a Near Fine, un clipped dust jacket. Jorge Luis Borges’ terse, mind-expanding stories reshaped modern fiction. He was one of the first authors to mix high culture with low, merging such popular genres as science fiction and the detective story with heady philosophical discourses on authorship, reality and existence. His tone of ironic detachment influenced generations of Latin American authors. The BBC argued that Borges was the most important writer of the 20th century. The 118 pieces in this selection of Borges' writings represent the full range of this master of the fantastic and the realistic as found in his fiction, his essays and his poems. This is the essential one-volume Borges.

Borges, Jorge Luis.
In Praise of Darkness.
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.

Borges, Jorge Luis.
Labyrinths.
A Very Good plus copy in a Very Good plus unclipped dust jacket with two shallow closed edge tears and gentle rubbing to the extremities. Borges' first book published in the US simultaneously with Ficciones. Labyrinths contains thirty-eight of Borges' finest fictions, essays and parables, with many of the stories considered Kafka-esque. This groundbreaking trans-genre work of the Argentinian writer has been insinuating itself into the structure, stance, and very breath of world literature for well over half a century. Multi-layered, self-referential, elusive, and allusive writing is now frequently labeled Borgesian.

Borges, Jorge Luis.

This volume contains 20 short stories that span over forty years of writing, together with a lengthy autobiographical essay written by Borges especially for this collection.

Borges, Jprge Luis.
Collected Fictions, Selected Poems, Selected Non-Fictions. Three Volumes.
All volumes are Fine copies in Fine unclipped dust jackets. In this compilation of nonfiction prose a new, fuller Borges emerges, as the writer becomes a joker; the fabulist shows himself to be a rationalistic skeptic. From Jorge Luis Borges’s 1935 debut with The Universal History of Iniquity, through his immensely influential collections Ficciones and The Aleph, these enigmatic, elaborate, imaginative inventions display his talent for turning fiction on its head by playing with form and genre and toying with language. Together these incomparable works comprise the perfect one-volume compendium for all those who have long loved Borges, and a superb introduction to the master's work for those who have yet to discover this singular genius. Though universally acclaimed for his dazzling fictions, Jorge Luis Borges always considered himself first and foremost a poet. This new bilingual selection brings together some two hundred poems--the largest collection of Borges' poetry ever assembled in English, including scores of poems never previously translated.

Jorge Luis Borges: Sources and Illumination.
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.
