Description

Jorge Luis Borges was one of those very rare creators who changed the face of an art form--in his case, the short story. His work has been paid the ultimate honor of being appropriated and imitated by innumerable writers on every continent of the world.

The seventeen brief masterpieces of FICCIONES explode the boundaries of genre, offering up labyrinthine libraries, a fictional encyclopedia entry that spawns an entire world, a review of a nonexistent writer's attempt to re-create Don Quixote word for word, a man with the disabling inability to forget anything he has ever experienced, and other metaphysical puzzles. But the true measure of Borges's greatness lies in the fact that his fictions--elaborately paradoxical, postmodern, and intellectually delicious as they are--managed to return the short story to the realm of the fabulous and the uncanny from which, as parable and fairy tale, it originally came.

"Pensé en un laberinto de laberintos, en un sinuoso laberinto creciente que abarcara el pasado y el porvenir y que implicara de algún modo los astros". --Jorge Luis Borges

Ficciones es quizá el libro más reconocido de Jorge Luis Borges, compuesto por los libros El jardín de senderos que se bifurcan y Artificios, ambos considerados piezas fundamentales del universo borgiano. Entre los cuentos que aquí se reúnen hay algunos de corte policial como "La muerte y la brújula", la historia de un detective que investiga el asesinato de un rabino; otros sobre libros imaginarios como "Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius", una extraordinaria reflexión sobre la literatura y su influencia en el mundo físico; y muchos pertenecientes al género fantástico como "El Sur", acaso su mejor relato, en palabras del mismo autor.

Fascinante y sorprendente, Ficciones le brinda al lector un mundo de reflexiones sobre las convenciones de lectura y el modo de entender la realidad.
