    1. Reading Borges is always a challenge When you read his stories, it seems you are reading everyone else s There is a lot of references in his work, and if you want to truly kind of understand it or begin to , you have to do a little research He ends up being an invaluable teacher Labyrinths, mirrors, libraries, dreams, fantasy, religion, philosophy, epistemology My love for philosophical literature began with this author My all time favorite story is Las Ruinas Circulares the power of thoughts Co [...]

    2. Even as a child, the Argentinian master storyteller Jorge Luis Borges lived among books and various languages myths, legends and literature from many civilizations and cultures Spanish, Chinese, Persian, Nordic, to name just a few His greatest childhood memory was his father s library he was reading Shakespeare in English before the age of twelve by the time he was an adult, Borges turned his mind into one vast library.Borges did not write long, involved novels like David Copperfield, The Brothe [...]

    3. Borges looked inside the swirling mind of man and made a maze of it A glorious maze The maze that is Ficciones is a maze built of mazes, one opening unto another, circling around and looping back, an infinity of mazes, small as the smallest of small minds, large as the universe can be imagined Its architecture is delicate and refined the wry wit of its creator is apparent in every twist and turn Borges maze gently mocks yet empathizes with the self important, the self absorbed, and the self deny [...]

    4. Blind to all fault, destiny can be ruthless at one s slightest distraction Reading Jorge Luis Borges is a bewildering experience and a challenge all in one There is no logically understanding the mazes Borges creates, but that is what fantastical realism is all about Ficciones is a labyrinth, beautiful and witty, of ideas and feelings that mock and conquers the reader.Borges can speak for himself, who am I to explain his brilliance and imagination When it was proclaimed that the Library containe [...]

    5. 3.5 There can be at times circumstances that effect your thoughts on what s being read Or even just the way that you read it This is one of those very occasion where I will undoubtedly benefit reading again It s clear to see why Jorge Luis Borges is regarded as one of the 20th century s most inventive writers, and Ficciones is a collection of small stories that are on a grand scale, but my overall problem was going through three or four at a time and finding them hard to digest, jumping from one [...]

    6. Metaphor Infinity Sophistry Penumbra Symbolic LABYRINTH Heresiarch Prefigured Philology Nihilism Maze AllegoricalThis may not be the prettiest word cloud ever constructed, but I think it s a fair representation of the Ficciones experience Much of the time spent trying to solve the stories puzzles involves bandying these concepts about I can t honestly say I understood them all, but moments when something did click were exciting because the ideas behind them were subtle and cryptic Comprehension [...]

    7. The peer pressure from my intellectually superior friends finally shamed me into reading this as I had no Borges under my belt Obviously from the 5 stars, I m glad I caved in This is a collection of 17 of his best short stories, held together merely by the thread that they are like nothing else you ve ever read or even thought about Not every story is perfection, but all are surprising, irritating, challenging and somehow rewarding Standouts are Pierre Menard, Author of Don Quixote a man who ded [...]

    8. 4.5 stars, rounding up I read and then reread several of these stories some of them for a third time while I was writing my final review for Fantasy Literature, and they keep impressing me for the most part My literary friends will be so proud of me D So here s the full review, where you can follow along with the journey of myself and my severely challenged, but ultimately edified brain cells Ficciones is a classic collection of seventeen short stories by acclaimed Argentine author Jorge Luis B [...]

    9. To me Fictions by Jorge Luis Borges is the ultimate anthology of short stories I find in it everything I ever want to find in literature reality and surrealness, fables and parables, legends and myths, mysticism and philosophy, history and fantasy and an endless enigma I owe the discovery of Uqbar to the conjunction of a mirror and an encyclopedia The mirror troubled the far end of a hallway in a large country house on Calle Gaona, in Ramos Mejia the encyclopedia is misleadingly titled The Anglo [...]

    10. Todav a no supero este libro Creo, el mejor de todos los libros de cuentos Borgianos Todav a no supero que los habitantes de tl n no crean en el espacio y su lenguaje este compuesto de una sucesi n infinita de verbos Todav a no supero la concepci n de un empresa como la Pierre Menard, que buscas escribir el Quijote, me rindo a ayudarle en lo que pueda Todav a no supero la daga, ni los laberintos, ni los tigres, ni el sur, ni las bibliotecas, ni al otroTodav a no supero a Borges.

    11. Note This is an article I wrote in 2009 to mark the 110th birth Anniversary of Borges Therefore, some of the stories I cite here may not belong to this collection I thought to post it here as this book is the most cited If you plan to buy a book of Borges, buy this one or Labyrinth and other stories as both contain the same set of stories and translators His best translators are Norman Thomas di Giovanni and Anthony Kerrigan Stay away from the translator Andrew Hurley THE BINOCULARS OF BORGES Ti [...]

    12. A dream within a dream It was a fascinating first acquaintance with Borges, an author who has been staying with me for a long time, a house ghost, a little of this and a little of that, a glimpse into my subconscious and all legends and myths in one place Cleverly wrought essays on Swedish scholars and secret societies planting false information and a lot of babble I clearly get the impression that Borges never minded hearing himself speak, and being spoken of The best short stories are the ones [...]

    13. Ok, I d tried to read Labyrinths years ago and found it dry and dull I thought that perhaps I just wasn t in the proper state of mind, or perhaps wasn t well read enough to get it I d also come off of a Calvino kick, so Borges felt boring Fast forward to me thinking that I really should commit to Borges and give him a real chance.I have to say that hard a hard time with this book I only really like one story The Babylonian Lottery The Circular Ruins, The Library of Babel, The Garden of Forking P [...]

    14. Read for the 2015 Reading Challenge 12 A book of short stories.Beautifully written, addictive, but complicated must of the time Definitely worth reading The stories cover a wide range of topics in an exquisite form Para lo corto del libro se tarda uno en leerlo Borges escribe muy lindo pero hay algo en estas historias que me hac an sentir intimidada, no se que fue Los temas que tratan son muy variados, as que seguro hay alguno para ti Las que a mi mas me gustaron fueron Tl n, Uqbar, Orbis Tertiu [...]

    15. You who read me, are You sure of understanding my language Jorge Luis Borges, The Library of Babel Even though I read Borges s Collected Fictions in Spanish, my native tongue, I have to confess I didn t understand half of it Presumptuous of me to think I would Famous for being the founder of postmodernist literature and influenced by the work of fantasists such Edgar Allan Poe and Franz Kafka, whom I adore, I was naive enough to assume I would be able to untangle Borges s labyrinthine, almost ri [...]

    16. Si alguien me preguntara qui n es el autor con la mejor prosa que he le do, sin lugar a dudas contestar a Jorge Luis Borges Cada uno de sus cuentos explota en l rica y bucea por existencias sutilmente cambiadas que te ofuscan en un mundo aparentemente conocido en el cual una magia ut pica y so adora es realidad Es pesado S Algunos cuentos, por no decir la mayor a, son casi incomprensibles Tambi n Borges nos ultraja nuestra capacidad de intelecci n Aunque si despu s buscan su significado, van a e [...]

    17. Este livro fez me sentir com c rebro de pulga N o sei se gosto disso devo gostar pois, em vez de desistir, li e reli cada conto h m dia de um por dia e, at ao conto dia seguinte, ia ruminando sobre o seu significado No principio, ainda me iludi e convenci me de que se fosse paciente e persistente iria ficar a entender, minimamente, o universo Borgeano Qual qu Quanto mais lia mais me afundava em confus o Mas, estranhamente, tamb m me sentia cada vez mais enfeiti ada com o livro, quer pelos temas [...]

    18. I owe the discovery of El Matrero to Harper Lee Five years ago I was spending the evening with my friend Renaldo Compostella, and, as was often the way, literature was our main topic of conversation Renaldo, who always, or certainly than I, kept an eye on forthcoming releases and bookish news, happened to mention the scheduled publication of a new novel by Harper Lee, the American authoress famous for To Kill a Mockingbird The ensuing discussion was notable not for what we had to say about Lee [...]

    19. For me, reading has always been like connecting your brain to that of the book s author Since January of this year, I have already finished 100 books and I never had experienced delving into a mind as scintillating as that of Jorge Luis Borges, the Spanish author of this strangely amazing or amazingly strange book FICCIONES which means FICTIONS.To understand the book, you really have to slow down and reflect on each phrase It is different from reading Salman Rushdie who I find confusing because [...]

    20. This collection of short stories is a great introduction to Borges fictional universe At times his stories read like a non fiction article or book review, but Borges sort of sneaks up on you and gives a tug at your conception of what constitutes real versus imaginary.I would say that some of the stories are engaging than others, but that s just a matter of personal interest They are all worth reading, and recommended, especially to those who enjoy magic realism, fantasy, and sci fi books.

    21. I m a fan of Artificios than the actual Ficciones collection, though El Jardin remains one of the better ones from Ficciones Reading this collection for my Boston book club made me realize that, having taught Borges short stories over the years and reading for my exams as a graduate student, I thought that I had read all of them.But I hadn t I encountered a few new ones here, namely The End , which puts an end to the Martin Fierro story So I ve erased Borges from my read lists and will reread e [...]

    23. 17 August, 1967 I just finished Ficciones today I also received it today That is, today, three weeks ago I mean, three weeks ago, today Three groups of seven, totaling twenty one or, in Arabic numerals, 3 x 7 21 I read the book once a day, for each of the days since receiving it A total of twenty one times 21 1 21 The first week, I read the book in a different mood per day I started off neutral The next day, I recalled annoying instances from my past to put myself in an angry mood I followed a s [...]

    24. msarki.tumblr post 8547458As I was reading these stories, these ficciones, I was wondering where I might have heard this Borges voice before And as I read it seemed to me that each story was important in its own rank as if derived from a serious study of an ancient text or the pouring over of history books detailing in no small measure the accounts that made up the results of whatever was being set forth Of course, because the original Ficciones were written in Spanish and then translated to Eng [...]

    25. E difficilissimo commentare questo libro La maggior parte dei lettori lo definisce un capolavoro assoluto, un classico contemporaneo Per me stata una lettura assai complessa Borges uno scrittore per un lettore erudito che non sono io Mi mancano le conoscenze letterarie di base per capirlo a fondo E cos scrivo di quel poco che sono riuscita a comprendere.Innanzitutto il titolo andando avanti con la lettura ho capito il perch del titolo Finzioni significa astrazione dalla realt e immersione nell i [...]

    26. I shouldn t write a review for this, much less assign stars to it which I might not do by the time I m finished writing My GR friend Dolors has said it already, and so eloquently, too here s Dolor s review , especially in her penultimate paragraph, its last sentence reminding me of Italo Calvino s If on a Winter s Night a Traveler, which I loved None of the star rankings are applicable for me, though of course I recognize the work s brilliance and that it deserves 5 stars I just don t think this [...]

    27. The all stars from this collection The Library of Babel, Pierre Manard Author of Don Quixote , The Garden of Forking Paths and Death and the Compass , and so on comprise some of the finest and first pangs of the postmodern in book form Reading the Sainted Borges feels at times like difficult math s homework or taking a primer in logical philosophy, and the dusty archaism of his references can make the stories feel like relics from the 18thC both a plus and a minus , otherwise, the engaging fable [...]
