As I’m such a fan of Borges, I thought I’d post a little blog on a great website that has a lot of information about him and his works. Besides the great Borges there are other authors that fall into the same style of writing that might be of interest. Just to note, that one of the great themes that ran throughout almost all of Borges’ works was that of the ‘labyrinth’. This was his grand metaphor, and one he would obsess about all his life. He was hailed as one of the greatest writers NEVER to have won the Nobel prize, and he was also famous for never having written a full novel. All his works are in the form of short stories… but his language is so concentrated and precise… well, it’s a bit like Ribena. Dilute before you taste! A little goes a long way.
