About the Author

Jorge Luis Borges nació en 1899 en Buenos Aires. En 1914 se mudó con su familia a Suiza y vivió también en España, donde comenzó a publicar en distintas revistas literarias. En 1921, de regreso en Buenos Aires, participó activamente de la vida cultural del momento; fundó las revistas Prisma y Proa, y firmó el primer manifiesto ultraísta. En 1923 publicó su libro de poesía Fervor de Buenos Aires y en 1935, Historia universal de la infamia. En las décadas siguientes, su obra crece: publica diversos libros de poesía, cuento y ensayo, así como numerosos trabajos en colaboración. Fue presidente de la Sociedad Argentina de Escritores, director de la Biblioteca Nacional, miembro de la Academia Argentina de Letras, profesor universitario y conferencista. Entre los premios que obtuvo, cabe destacar el Premio Nacional de Literatura, el Formentor y el Cervantes. Considerado uno de los más importantes autores en lengua hispana de todos los tiempos, recibió el título de doctor honoris causa de las universidades de Columbia, Yale, Oxford, Michigan, Santiago de Chile, La Sorbona y Harvard. Falleció en Ginebra en 1986.

"And the demiurges and gods would choose an infinite scheme: infinite stories, infinitely divided."
Along with "Labyrinths," this is the best known and most widely read of Borges's short story collections, although these are hardly stories in any kind of traditional sense. It's like a house of cards in a hall of mirrors or one of those Escher prints that everyone seemed to have in their dorm rooms in the 90s. You can definitely see his influence in Umberto Eco's writing, as well as a whole generation of Latin American writers. You might also like Nabokov's "Pale Fire."
