Todos los fuegos el fuego offers eight great examples of the creative fullness that encompasses Cortazar's stories.

The sonnets : a dual-language edition with parallel text by Jorge Luis Borges( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This landmark collection brings together for the first time in any language all of the sonnets of Jorge Luis Borges. More intimate and personally revealing than his fiction, and more classical in form than the inventive metafictions that are his hallmark, the sonnets reflect Borges in full maturity, paying homage to many of his literary and philosophical paragons-Cervantes, Milton, Whitman, Emerson, Joyce, Spinoza-while at the same time engaging the mysteries immanent in the quotidian. A distinguished team of translators-Edith Grossman, Willis Barnstone, John Updike, Mark Strand, Robert Fitzgerald, Alastair Reid, Charles Tomlinson, and Stephen Kessler-lend their gifts to these sonnets, many of which appear here in English for the first time, and all of which accompany their Spanish originals on facing pages."--Book cover

Poems of the night : a dual-language edition with parallel text by Jorge Luis Borges( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Revered for his magnificent works of fiction, Jorge Luis Borges thought of himself primarily as a poet. Poems of the Night is a moving collection of the great literary visionary's poetic meditations on nighttime, darkness, and the crepuscular world of visions and dreams, themes that speak implicitly to the blindness that overtook Borges late in life-and yet the poems here are drawn from the full span of Borges's career. Featuring such poems as "History of the Night" and "In Praise of Darkness" and more than fifty others in luminous translations by an array of distinguished translators-among them W.S. Merwin, Christopher Maurer, Alan Trueblood, and Alastair Reid-this volume brings to light many poems that have never appeared in English, presenting them en face with their Spanish originals."--Book cover

Hiding in his Barcelona apartment, obsessed with the ruins of his past, Muñoz-Roa relates the story of his flight to the small town of Dors with Luisa, his cousin, lover, and benefactor, after his scandalous defection from the 'Informalist' movement (an ironic reference to a contemporary Catalan art movement and possibly also a veiled allusion to the boom)."--Page [2] of jacket
