Ringrazio con quintali di biscotti il mio libraio che al mio "non ho ancora letto nulla di Borges" mi ha dato questa meraviglia. Sono in estasi.

Due racconti tratti da Finzioni di Borges.
Io adoro questo scrittore: è geniale.
Non so se lo si apprezza leggendo solo questi due.
Per quanto mi riguarda, rileggerli dopo un mese dalla fine della lettura di Finzioni, è stato un piacere assoluto.

Quando un utente crea una scheda-libro cerchi di fare un lavoro gradevole. In questo caso non abbiamo la cover e il nome è sbagliato.

Sono cose che non sopporto.

I racconti mi sono piaciuti ma li ho trovati labirintici. Secondo me il curatore ha voluto dare origine ad un contrasto tra l'ebraismo e la Germania della prima guerra mondiale: si voleva suscitare una particolare allusione?Forse ma è solo un'intuizione.

Le biforcazioni del sentiero del tempo non sono affatto facili da decifrare.

این اثر بورخس را با ترجمه ی احمد میرعلایی(1363)دیده ام اما از اصل روایت بی خبرم، یعنی تا به حال با اثری به این نام در مجموعه آثار بورخس برنخورده ام.

Since I read this so long ago, I don't remember it well enough to give it a rating at this time.

Borges gioca con le parole dando vita a mondi fittizi e personaggi ricchi ed enigmatici. Brevi, brevissime storielle, con un sapore unico e del tutto particolare.
