Fictions

The seventeen pieces in Ficciones demonstrate the gargantuan powers of imagination, intelligence, and style of one of the greatest writers of this or any other century. 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. More playful and approachable than the fictions themselves are Borges's Prologues, brief elucidations that offer the uninitiated a passageway into 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. To enter the worlds in Ficciones is to enter the mind of Jorge Luis Borges, wherein lies Heaven, Hell, and everything in between.

  • "Reprise de deux recueils publiés en 1941 et 1944, contenant 17 nouvelles ou contes brefs relevant du fantastique moderne dont l'écrivain argentin est l'un des meilleurs représentants. Maître de l'insolite, à l'érudition vertigineuse, Borges possède à merveille cet art subtil et allusif qui plonge le lecteur dans un état second où la réalité prend un relief étrange et dépaysant. Ouvrage important pour le genre. Préface, p. 7-15."
  • ""Jorge Luis Borge's Fictions introduced an entirely new voice into world literature. It is here we find the astonishing accounts of Funes, the man who can forget nothing; the French poet who recreated Don Quixote word for word; the fatal lottery in Babylon; the mysterious planet of Tlon; and the library containing every possible book in the whole universe. Here too are the philosophical detective stories and the haunting tales of Irish revolutionaries, gaucho knife fights and dreams within dreams which proved so influential (and yet impossible to imitate). This collection was eventually to bring Borges international fame; over fifty years later, it remains endlessly intriguing." -- Book cover."
  • ""Pense en un laberinto de laberintos, en un sinuoso laberinto creciente que abarcara el pasado y el porvenir y que implicara de algUn modo los astros". 'Jorge Luis Borges Ficciones es quizA el libro mAs reconocido de Jorge Luis Borges, compuesto por los libros El jardin de senderos que se bifurcan y Artificios, ambos considerados piezas fundamentales del universo borgiano. Entre los cuentos que aqui se reUnen hay algunos de corte policial como "La muerte y la brUjula", la historia de un detective que investiga el asesinato de un rabino; otros sobre libros imaginarios como "TlOn, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius", una extraordinaria reflexiOn sobre la literatura y su influencia en el mundo fisico; y muchos pertenecientes al genero fantAstico como "El Sur", acaso su mejor relato, en palabras del mismo autor. Fascinante y sorprendente, Ficciones le brinda al lector un mundo de reflexiones sobre las convenciones de lectura y el modo de entender la realidad."
  • "Soubor povídek největšího žijícího spisovatele Latinské Ameriky, rozdělený do oddílů Zahrada, v které se cestičky rozvětvují, Artefakty, Alef a zahrnující povídky fantastické, detektivní či přesněji kriminalisticko-fantastickéa povídky zasazené do argentinského prostředí městského i venkovského. Příběhy, v nichž autor suverénně rozehrává složitá témata tajnosti, hrůzy a chaosu, infikující duševní život dnešního člověka."
