New readers of the Master, as well as old, will bless its compilers.' [Anthony Burgess] ***'This is a book that would have been to Borges' taste. With true erudition it organises, classifies, defines and collates the thousand and one creatures of his imagination.' [Mario Vargas Llosa] ***'Jorge Luis Borges, who died in 1987 a the age of 86, is one of the most original and at the same time one of the most 'difficult' twentieth-century writers. Though his output was small the range of his erudition was vast, and the number of arcane references in his fiction to people and places real and imaginary can baffle even the most learned reader. This invaluable handbook covers the canon of Borges' fiction, providing basic information on every allusion. There are more than 1200 entires in all, from Alexander of Aphrodisias to Zarathustra; every relevant subject is treated, from Classical and Icelandic folklore to Chinese etiquette and the heresies of Gnosticism. Textual references are to the English and American versions and also to the Spanish originals. Dr Fishburn and Dr Hughes, both specialists in Borgesian studies, have produced an admirably concise work of reference which makes accessible to the general reader the imaginative world of one of the most challenging writers of the modern age.' [Quote and review quotes from inside front of dustwrapper blurb] ***Uncommon first edition in its original dustwrapper in nice, collectable condition. ***For all our books, postage is charged at cost, allowing for packaging: any shipping rates indicated on ABE are an average only: we will reduce the P & P charge where appropriate - please contact us for postal rates for heavier books and sets etc. Bookseller Inventory #
