Some magnificently convoluted and clever stories - just what you would expect from Borges. If you're looking for a way to get into the Argentinian master's enigmatic writing, this is probably the best bet. ( )

Book description
Un pensiero insieme lucido e appassionato guida questi racconti, nei quali un'invenzione ardente e temeraria tocca, con esito spesso drammatico e patetico, temi universali: il tempo, l'eternità, la morte, la personalità e il suo sdoppiamento, la pazzia, il dolore, il destino.
Temi universali, uniti al sentimento dell'unicità irripetibile dell'esperienza individuale, in uno scrittore che si presenta, innanzitutto, sotto l'aspetto dell'eleganza.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0141183837, Paperback)

Borges' stories have a deceptively simple, almost laconic style. In maddeningly ingenious stories that play with the very form of the short story, Borges returns again and again to his themes: dreams, labyrinths, mirrors, infinite libraries, the manipulations of chance, gaucho knife-fighters, transparent tigers and the elusive nature of identity itself.

Originalmente publicada en 1949, esta coleccion reune dieciocho relatos entre los que se encuentra algunos de los mas admirados cuentos de la literatura: "El Aleph," la clasica historia de una resplandeciente esfera en la que confluyen de un modo asombroso todos los tiempos y todos los espacios en el universo; "El Zahir," una fascinante reflexion sobre la obsesion, Borges narra la historia de un objeto que inspira la fascinacion inmediata de todos aquellos que lo ven hasta consumir su atencion y realidad completa; y "El Inmortal," un inquietante viaje a traves de la Ciudad de los Inmortales, un laberintico mundo en el que todo, incluso los edificios y las escaleras, aparece caoticamente irregular o invertido.… (more)
