Jorge Luis Borges – Short Stories

Wednesdays at 10am – Five Week Session, starting January 10

The Argentine writer, Jorge Luis Borges, is often compared to writers such as Franz Kafka and James Joyce in regards to both his mastery over the art of storytelling and his innovations of language. Many have cited Borges as the most important Spanish language writer since Cervantes. A writer of poetry, short stories, and essays, Borges is touted as one of the inventors of the “philosophical short story.” His writing, often dealing with issues of existentialism and mysticism, can be viewed as a precursor to Magical Realism and a major influence over the Latin American writers that followed, including Gabriel García Márquez. In this course we will be conducting an in-depth reading of a selection of Borges’ short stories.

Please Register: 831-1800     Syllabus and Books, "Ficciones" ($13) are available in office. Call to reserve.

This course is supported by the State Legislative Grant
