“The fact is that each writer creates his precursors. His work modifies our conception of the past, as it will modify the future.” – Jorge Luis Borges, Kafka and His Precursors, 1951, in Selected Non-Fictions, page 365; 2000, translated by Eliot Weinberger
August 24 will mark the 119th anniversary of the birth of the Argentine author Jorge Luis Borges. As with last year and in some previous years, I like to honor his life with a post that ideally captures his spirit in some way.

These books have much to offer to both dedicated Borges followers, and new fans of his incomparable work. Let’s hope that one year from now, at 120 years since his birth, we will witness even more words and images to mark a new milestone in Borges studies.
