Read full description of the books:
El estudio de Jorge Luis Borges sobre "Evaristo Carriego" - poeta argentino que disfruto de popularidad a principios de siglo - no es un simple ejercicio critico-biografico ni un conjunto de estampas costumbristas, sino que late en el el proposito de recrear el desconocido medio que rodeo la ninez aislada у protegida de su autor. Obra "menos documental que imaginativa", en ella Borges - criado "en un jardin, detras de una verja con lanzas, у en una biblioteca de ilimitados libros ingleses" - relata la cronica de ese "Palermo del cuchillo у de la guitarra" en el cual durante afios creyo que habia transcurrido su infancia.

Read information about the authorJorge Francisco Isidoro Luis Borges Acevedo, usually referred to as Jorge Luis Borges (Spanish pronunciation: [xoɾxe lwis boɾxes]), was an Argentine writer and poet born in Buenos Aires. In 1914, his family moved to Switzerland where he attended school and traveled to Spain. On his return to Argentina in 1921, Borges began publishing his poems and essays in Surrealist literary journals. He also worked as a librarian and public lecturer. Borges was fluent in several languages. He was a target of political persecution during the Peron regime and supported the military juntas that overthrew it.
Due to a hereditary condition, Borges became blind in his late fifties. In 1955, he was appointed director of the National Public Library (Biblioteca Nacional) and professor of Literature at the University of Buenos Aires. In 1961, he came to international attention when he received the first International Publishers' Prize Prix Formentor. His work was translated and published widely in the United States and in Europe. He died in Geneva, Switzerland, in 1986.
J. M. Coetzee said of Borges: "He, more than anyone, renovated the language of fiction and thus opened the way to a remarkable generation of Spanish American novelists."
