«Cuando la Universidad de Belgrano me propuso dar cinco clases, elegí temas con los cuales me había consustanciado el tiempo. El primero, El libro, ese instrumento sin el cual no puedo imaginar mi vida, y que no es menos íntimo para mí que las manos o que los ojos. El segundo, La inmortalidad, esa amenaza o esperanza que han soñado tantas generaciones y que postula buena p ...more

There's something about reading Borges that makes me comfortable, listening with the eyes to be precise about this book of transcripted lectures. While speaking he never imposes himself, never throws his ideas at you. Whenever he lights a subject it's always there as subtle possibility, it might or not be true, but that's not the point anyway. Borges gently speaks just to enlarge your imagination.

Uma série de 5 aulas, onde a fala de Borges foi recuperada das gravações magnéticas e representada nesses 5 ensaios, os temas, por mais distintos que pareçam, são conduzidos de um modo que praticamente se torna uma narrativa, que começa com o Livro e termina, quase num loop, com o Tempo. Indico muito a leitura!

Otra vez Borges nos vuelve a impactar con su elocuente cátedra conversada. La inmortalidad, los libros, el tiempo son algunos de sus temas que, como él mismo lo señala, no tienen más en común que el gran despliegue de erudicción que el autor argentino nos ofrece. Se lee como se debe haber oido. Es una lástima que lo hayamos perdido. Es una fortuna que haya dejado su legado por escrito.

Conjeturas. Ni bien ni mal.

Si no hubiese existido el Borges narrador, el ensayista hubiese justificado sobradamente su paso por este mundo.
Oírlo dictar una conferencia, con su pausada sorna porteña, debió ser una de las experiencias por las que merecería sufrir el siglo XX.
Leámoslo, al menos.

“E lá, depois de mortos, tocaremos, já que não temos
mãos; e veremos, não mais cegados por nossos olhos”.
Isso é uma boa poesia, mas não sei até onde é boa
filosofia. Gustav Spiller, em seu admirável tratado de
psicologia, diz que, se pensamos em outras desventuras
do corpo, por exemplo uma mutilação, uma pancada na
cabeça, elas não proporcionam nenhum benefício à alma.
Não há razão para supor que um cataclismo do corpo será
benéfico para a alma. Sócrates, contudo, que acredita
nessas duas realidades, a

“Fra i diversi strumenti dell’uomo, il più stupefacente è, senza dubbio, il libro. Gli altri sono estensioni del suo corpo. Il microscopio, il telescopio, sono estensioni della sua vista; il telefono è estensione della voce; poi ci sono l’aratro e la spada, estensioni del suo braccio. Ma il libro è un’altra cosa: il libro è un’estensione della memoria e dell’immaginazione.”

Creo que es suficiente platicar con Borges en estos ensayos...es demasiado buena su plática y muy impresionante. Un deber leerlo.
