Item description for Cuentos memorables segun Borges (Extra Alfaguara) (Spanish Edition) by Jorge Luis Borges...

In a 1935 magazine article, celebrated author Jorge Luis Borges explained why he chose Mary Sinclair s short story Donde su fuego nunca se apaga as the most memorable story he d ever read, while he mentioned 11 other of his personal favorites. Inspired by Borges statements in the article, this anthology gathers an array of magnificent short stories by authors such as Allan Poe, Conrad, Kipling, O Henry, among others.
Description in Spanish: No s si soy un buen escritor; creo ser un excelente lector o, en todo caso, un sensible y agradecido lector. Esta frase de Borges, citada infinidad de veces, sigue reencontrando su sentido inequvoco El 26 de julio de 1935, en una seccin de la revista El Hogar titulada Un cuento, joya de la literatura, Borges explicaba por qu elega el relato de May Sinclair Donde su fuego nunca se apaga como el cuento ms memorable que haba ledo, al tiempo que mencionaba otros once. (ver reproduccin en la columna derecha) Esa declaracin ha inspirado la presente antologa, que rene un variado grupo de magnficos relatos.
