On Labyrinths, Philosophy, and Monsters: The Stories of Jorge Luis Borges

Jorge Luis Borges is one of the most difficult and influential Latin American writers. His fascination with labyrinths, mirrors, time, infinity, blindness, and memory are legendary. His oeuvre spans almost the entire twentieth century and reflects on key events as well as serving as a sustained philosophical investigation into the nature of truth, reality, fiction, history, and epistemology.
