review Labyrinths Selected Stories and Other Writings Ö eBook or Kindle ePUB Although his work has been restricted to the short story the essay and poetry Jorge Luis Borges of Argentina is recognized all over the world as one of the most original and significant figures in modern literature In his preface Andre Maurois writes Borges is a grea. The stories essays and parables in this Borges collection with all their esoteric references to multiple histories cultures and literatures are no likely to appeal to a casual reader then a textbook on cognitive psychology To extract literary gold from highly intricate complex works like The Garden of Forking Paths Emma Zunz The Library of Babel or The Zahir reuires careful multiple readings as well as a willingness to occasionally investigate terms and references for example here are several from The Zahir The Book of Rites Isaac Lauendem The Nibelungen the novel Confessions of a Thug The Book of Things UnknownAnd speaking of The Zahir if I were to move from referring to the tale itself to the ideas which lie behind it how would my review read What does it mean for a narrator to dissolve the universe into a single coin Why does Borges describe right at the outset how at different times in the past the Zahir a coin he was handed in a bar morphed into a tiger a blind man a small compass a vein in the marble of a pillar the bottom of a well How does one compress all time into this one sentence I am now writing And what of the philosophical and cultural context in which Borges wrote this tale Could a first person short story like The Zahir have been written in Ancient China Medieval Persia Colonial America These are uestions that lie outside the framework of this Borges tale Or do theyPhilosophical musing on the reality of the Zahir propels Borges and us as readers to multiple worlds of a woman who seeks to makes every one of her actions correct to the point where she desires the absolute in the momentary the dark light of the Gnostics a dream where he Borges the narrarator becomes a pile of coins guarded by a gryphon Then after Borges fascination with the Zahir slides into obsession driving him to seek out a psychiatrist he writes Time which softens memories only makes the memory of the Zahir sharper First I could see the face of it then the reverse now I can see both sides at once It is not as though the Zahir were made of glass since one side is not superimposed upon the other rather it is as though the vision were spherical and the Zahir flutters in the center Such refection bring to mind Hesse s The Glass Bead Game where the beads are in fact made of glass and can represent in turn cosmic topology a fugue of celestial spheres variations on relational placement as in the colors and lines of a Mondrian or circles with plasticity in Vasarely only the Zahir has about it unity then plurality and thus one M bius strip one musical note one painting one print Toward the very end we read Others will dream that I am mad while I dream of the Zahir When every person on earth thinks day and night of the Zahir which will be dream and which reality the earth or the Zahir Regarding the essays Partial Magic in the uixote opens us to a least a dozen uniue angles in our approach to this Spanish classic Kafka and His Precursors explores the connection of writers like Kierkegaard and Browning along with Zeno s paradox to the famous author of The Metamorphosis The Mirror of Enigmas delves into conundrums such as the symbolic significance of Sacred Scriptures and various forms of metaphysical writings as reflected on by among others Philo of Alexandria Seven essays will bend and stretch you mind in ways you never thought possibleIn the parable Borges and I the author conducts a dialogue with himself as well as take your pick author public persona alter ego younger self older self second self and is uncertain as he concludes his parable who exactly is the author of the lines he has just written Everything and Nothing is a parable featuring Shakespeare with a multiple identity crisis another parable The Witness has the narrator brooding over memory and death and yet in another parable Inferno 132 we encounter a leopard Dante and God in what could be viewed as a dreamscapeReading Labyrinths years ago I was inspired to write this micro fiction as a tribute to Jorge Luis Borges LIFE STORYThe bold letters on the cover read Harold Blackman Life Story The book looks uite ordinary One is reuired to make a special inspection to see a ueer spring like device along the spine Harold Blackman opens the book before him The title page is completely blank as are all the pages He runs gnarled fingers tips calloused and slightly trembling lightly over this ghost of a title page and reflects on the long agonizing nights when he tried to pen the fire of his youth and the spume of his manhood without success What he saw when the ink dried always left him feeling flat unsettled Closing his eyes he repeats an incantation learned from a half crazed Argentine then opens them slowly very slowly Harold Blackman weary adventurer is now standing on the writing table shrunken to the size of the book Lying down on the title page the back of his legs buttocks and backbone relax to the paper s slight give He released a catch on the spine the leather cover snapping shut with the vengeance of a mousetrap But for a muffled groan all is silence Over time the blood seeps through the pages forming words sentences paragraphs

review Labyrinths Selected Stories and Other Writings Ö eBook or Kindle ePUB T writer who has composed only little essays or short narratives Yet they suffice for us to call him great because of their wonderful intelligence their wealth of invention and their tight almost mathematical style Labyrinths is a representative selection of Borges'. A university professor had once expounded on the supposed conflict between history and literature the former bemoaning the irrelevance of the latter when it comes to tracing the contours of reality while the latter countering this accusation by deploying the well known defense of there s no one way of looking at the truth Indeed Why restrict ourselves to just the one way and the one reality Why overlook the truth of infinite permutations and combinations of each eventuality and each one of them in turn forking off into myriad possibilities ad infinitum Why seek neat compartmentalization of two disparate disciplines and prevent their intermingling to create new streams of thought Why believe mathematics and literature to be so fundamentally apart that there can be no blending together of both without the results being distorted beyond intelligibility The very fact that the known limits of what s considered intelligible are being breached every moment has its roots in the reluctance of labyrinthine minds like Borges to follow linear pathways Mysticism mathematics arcana philosophy and literary criticism A perfect blurring of the boundaries between fact and fiction leading to the creation of an entirely new entity which challenges the normative narrative form And a moment of perfect lucidity arising out of a churning of all these elements Where our imaginations come to a staggering halt Borges begins I do not wish to sueeze out every last drop of meaning from these complex interpolations of a known truth into discrete bits of hitherto unknown logical conclusions by googling every reference I did not get Instead I delight in Borges perfectly synchronized demolition of all and any conventions associated with writing with an authorial preeminence I gaze enthralled at the vision of clarity being birthed out of pure chaos In a birdless dawn the magician saw the concentric blaze close round the walls For a moment he thought of taking refuge in the river but then he knew that death was coming to crown his old age and absolve him of labors He walked into the shreds of flame But they did not bite into his flesh they caressed him and engulfed him without heat or combustion With relief with humiliation with terror he understood that he too was a mere appearance dreamt by another I let my mind latch onto his even if for a little while and let it guide me into realms where only the divinity of thought reigns supreme in its many manifestations And for now that is enoughPS It s good to know where DFW acuired his irksome yet awe inspiring footnoting habit from

Tl n is surely a labyrinth but it is a labyrinth devised by men a labyrinth destined to be deciphered by men Labyrinths is a collection of short stories essays and other literary works It is my first experience with Borges but it shall not be the last Borges writes but he does than that He s a chimaera part philosopher part academic part historian and part bibliognost His vast accumulated knowledge penetrates his work to create meta fiction that feels truly authentic thus one has constantly remind oneself that Borges pens works of fiction and not treatises He bends thought axioms and orthodoxy in his readers He asks that you submit to his mind As a reward he elicits a delicious reverberation from his work and the beauty and wisdom of his stories that might appear vastly spread in theme and scope create a cohesive chef d oeuvre It spotlights the mind a labyrinth of those before us those that have been might have been those that have etched their names in the annals of history They create the maze of thought that Borges like Ariadne leading Theseus out of the Minotaur s labyrinth leads us through After a taste of a small portion of his body of work I have realized something vastly significant that I have missed Fiction relies as much on the accumulation of knowledge as it is an art form that words are not only chosen and arranged that you don t merely tell a story But you create a world out of all the information you ve learned all the systems you ve mastered and all the theories you ve dissected all the things you ve read Maybe a writer is not like a divine creator who creates something out of nothing but rather a modest chef who crafts something from the ingredients he has available to him These ingredients we get from our experiences our studies our reading Not only of fiction but of philosophy of different disciplines of the ancients and of the myths People say that the best chefs are the gastronomists Might I presume to say the same thing for writers that the best writers are those most widely read And Jorge Luis Borges is as well read a writer as any other He references both trendy works and works which no one reads any He creates haunting phantasms full of familiarity and novelty unmatched works uniue in sentiment He echoes the Cabbalists the Greeks the European philosophers even Twain yet his voice is unassumingly original In the works of others he finds his reflection staring back at him His pen is both an enigma and a revelation Thus my life is a flight and I lose everything and everything belongs to oblivion or to him I do not know which of us has written this page I have walked the winding path inside the mind of Borges and the walls of his words enchant me If to be lost in his labyrinth is to be engulfed in silent brilliance then I pray never to find my way again
