Course Description

Borges’ short stories raise philosophical questions in a playful but unsystematic way. This course will seek to bring out his main theoretical concerns, examining how he evokes them repeatedly using his favoured imagery and tropes, and we shall discuss how his ideas fit in with cultural currents of his time (international modernism, Latin American literature, etc.) All discussion will be in English, and participants in the course may read the stories in English translation or in the Spanish original.
