Jorge Luis Borges: A Writer on the Edge

Jorge Luis Borges: A Writer on the Edge (Paperback)

£12.99
Usually despatched in 7-10 days.

Synopsis

Jorge Luis Borges is generally acknowledged to be one of the 20th century's most significant writers. Yet in all the critical debates on his work, the fact that he is an Argentine writer is rarely discussed, as if his world reputation had somehow cleansed him of nationality. In "Jorge Luis Borges", Sarlo challenges these "universalist" readings, arguing that they leave aside vital aspects of Borges' writing, including his most powerful vision of Argentina's past and its traditions, which placed both the writer and his country at the strange intersection of European and Latin American culture.
