SPAN 108. Jorge Luis Borges

This seminar focuses on Jorge Luis Borges, one of the most influential writers of the 20th century. He devoted his entire life to literature, as a writer but also as an irreverent and subversive reader. None of his lines, none of his declarations happened inadvertently. Hated or held dear, Borges is incessantly quoted. The objective of this course is to read Borges from the double perspective required by his worldwide fame: as a universal writer who transcends national borders, but also as a writer that seeks to reinvent the history and the traditions of his own country, Argentina.
