Into the Borgesian Labyrinth

WITH MARIELA BURANI

I offer you whatever insight my books may hold,
whatever manliness or humour my life.

Jorge Luis Borges, Two English Poems


In these four sessions we are going to explore some features of Jorge Luis Borges’ work by reading a selection of his most well-known short stories.  

Sessions

How we are going to work:
