Ficciones by Jorge Luis Borges sofarsoShawn gave 5 stars to Ficciones (Paperback) by Jorge Luis Borges
I came to reading Borges by way of Baudrillard, the reason should be self-evident (Exactitude in Science), but I suppose nothing really is, and any relation of "the how" would sound like a Borges tale in itself and we'd be back right where we started. But goddamn what a ride it is! Forking paths and revolutions like a tilt-a-whirl at the amusement park, where has Borges been all my life? Upon reading these circuitous locutions on fake books all the dubious meanders of history become resolved, everything awry gets set right and placed exactly in the place it should be placed, like the after-the-fact Lascaux caves. Stories of note:
1. Tlon, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius
2. The Babylonian Lottery
3. Three Versions of Judas
