Jorge Luis Borges : a literary biography by Emir Rodríguez Monegal( Book )

47 editions published between 1977 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 1,555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An obscure Argentine, after writing a few laconic stories on philosophical themes, is miraculously discovered by the French literati and goes on to become one of the most admired writers of the 20th century. Though this may sound like a rather improbable film plot, it is the story of Jorge Luis Borges, a story investigated in detail by Borges' close friend Emir Monegal. Professor Monegal, a Borges confidant for more than 30 years, has been able, as no one else possibly could, to unearth the facts from this legend that Borges has so deftly constructed around himself. The result is a narrative as intriguing as one of Borges' own stories of detection. Monegal traces Borges' development as a writer from its beginnings in the child called Georgie who lived in a rundown neighborhood on the outskirts of Buenos Aires, learning to read English before he could read Spanish, to the winner of the most prestigious international literary prizes. He skillfully links Borges' personal history with his literary production, providing a fascinating account of the unfolding and eventual fruition of a creative genius.--From publisher description

Obras completas by José Enrique Rodó( Book )

14 editions published between 1957 and 1967 in Spanish and Undetermined and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Máximo exponente del ensayo literario del Modernismo hispanoamericano y miembro de la generación uruguaya del 900, el autor de Ariel fue testigo de la crisis espiritual del Fin de Siglo, del expansionismo estadounidense y del peligroso influjo de su modelo utilitario de progreso. Con las armas del intelectual liberal -el pensamiento, la palabra y la escritura- luchó por fortalecer una identidad cultural latinoamericana basada en sus valores humanísticos, tan necesarios en aquellas «democracias imperfectas» que marginaban por improductivo el pensamiento y el arte. Transcurrido un siglo, su escritura sigue suscitando reflexiones, relecturas y polémicas
