Read full description of the books Antología poética 1923-1977:Antología Poética 1923-1977 reúne una selección de poemas que, excluyendo cualquier enfoque académico, llevó a cabo el propio Jorge Luis Borges: ""Yo desearía que este volumen fuera leído sub quadam specie aeternitatis, de un modo hedónico, no en función de teorías, que no profeso, o de mis circunstancias biográficas. Lo he compilado hedónicamente; sólo he recogido lo que me agrada o lo que me agradaba en el instante en que lo elegí".
Read information about the authorJorge Francisco Isidoro Luis Borges Acevedo (Spanish pronunciation: [xoɾxe lwis boɾxes], Russian: Хорхе Луис Борхес) was an Argentine writer and poet born in Buenos Aires. In 1914, his family moved to Switzerland where he attended school and traveled to Spain. On his return to Argentina in 1921, Borges began publishing his poems and essays in Surrealist literary journals. He also worked as a librarian and public lecturer. Borges was fluent in several languages. He was a target of political persecution during the Peron regime and supported the military juntas that overthrew it.
Due to a hereditary condition, Borges became blind in his late fifties. In 1955, he was appointed director of the National Public Library (Biblioteca Nacional) and professor of Literature at the University of Buenos Aires. In 1961, he came to international attention when he received the first International Publishers' Prize Prix Formentor. His work was translated and published widely in the United States and in Europe. He died in Geneva, Switzerland, in 1986.
J. M. Coetzee said of Borges: "He, more than anyone, renovated the language of fiction and thus opened the way to a remarkable generation of Spanish American novelists."
