Borges, infinity and me
"No one is anyone, one single immortal man is all men. Like Cornelius Agrippa, I am god, I am hero, I am philosopher, I am demon and I am world, which is a tedious way of saying that I am no-one."

--J.L.Borges, from the "The Immortal"

A set tribute to El Maestro, don Borges. Posts totally or partially related to him and the seeds he planted in me.

Borges, the precursor I chose for myself...

"In the critic's vocabulary, the word "precursor" is indispensable, but it should be cleansed of all connotations of polemic or rivalry. The fact is that every writer creates his own precursors. His work modifies our conception of the past, as it will modify the future." -- Essay: "Kafka and his Precursors"
