More About Jorge Luis Borges

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Jorges Luis Borges was born in Buenos Aires in 1899 and educated in Europe. One of the most widely acclaimed writers of our time, he published many collections of poems, essays and short stories, before his death in Geneva in June 1986. In 1961 Borges shared the International Publishers' Prize with Samuel Beckett. The Ingram Merrill Foundation granted him its Annual Literary Award in 1966 for his "outstanding contribution to literature." In 1971 Columbia University awarded him the first of many degrees of Doctor of Letters, honoris causa that he was to receive from the English-speaking world. In 1971 he received the fifth biennial Jerusalem Prize and in 1973 was given the Alfonso Reyes Prize, one of Mexico's most prestigious cultural awards. In 1980 he shared the Cervantes Prize (the Spanish world's highest literary accolade) with Gerardo Diego. Borges was Director of the Argentine National Library from 1955 until 1973. In a tribute to Borges, Mario Vargas Llosa wrote: "His is a world of clear, pure, and at the same time unusual ideas...expressed in words of great directness and restraint. [He] was a superb storyteller. One reads most of Borges' tales with the hypnotic interest usually reserved for reading detective fiction..."
Andrew Hurley is a translator of numerous works of literature, criticism, history, and memoir. He is professor emeritus at the University of Puerto Rico.

Reviews - What do customers think about Antología poética 1923-1977?

Desafía las categorias, no se le puede llamar solo poesía  Jun 17, 2002
Lastimosamente pertenezco al grupo de las personas que considera la poesía increíblemente aburrida y esotérica. Nunca me puedo concentrar en seguir las ideas del autor y aún menos entenderlas. Este libro es para mi tanto la excepción como la regla. Si bien no pienso presumir que he entendido lo que Borges quería trasmitir en cada uno de sus poemas, si me fue posible concentrarme en ellos y dejarme sorprender por lo que evoca. Tal vez lo que me impacta es la completa ausencia de humor en cualquiera de ellos. Parece que la vida lo sorprende y angustia tanto que le es imposible burlarse de ella, cada línea esta impregnada de una devoción religiosa a algo. Como ese tipo de reuniones donde las personas se sienten tan importantes (por ejemplo los banqueros) que quien sonríe es sospechoso de algo - de que no se - pero de algo!

En otras palabras es claro que no estamos leyendo nada tonto ni sensiblero; es impactante y de alguna manera nos llama a despertarnos de la cotidianeidad pero tan denso que es difícil saborearlo. No es un libro para días de sol. En realidad solo debe ser abierto si esta dispuesto a que le digan una y otra vez que nada es lo que parece ser. Y tal línea de pensamiento no cuadra en aquellos momentos donde todo nos importa un jopo.

Jorge Luis Borges, un poeta mayor.  Jun 18, 2000
Es importante poder contar con una edicion que reuna la obra poetica de uno de los escritores mayores de la literatura hispanoamericana del siglo XX y de todos los tiempos. La edicion es excelente y por supuesto, los poemas tambien. Leer a Borges es indispensable para cualquiera que aspire a tener un minimo de cultura literaria en estos momentos.
