"En 1885 Kipling avait commencé, à Lahore, une série de brefs récits, écrits de façon simple, dont il allait faire un recueil en 1980. Beaucoup d'entre eux -In the House of Sudhoo, Beyond the Pale, The gate of the Hundred Sorrows- sont de laconiques chefs-d'œuvre ; je me suis dit un jour ce que j'avais imaginé et réussi un jeune homme de génie pouvait, sans outrecuidance, être imité par un homme au seuil de la vieillesse et qui a du métier. Cette pensée a eu pour résultat le présent volume que mes lecteurs jugeront."

Elf verhalen over het menselijk tekort
Six problems for Don Isidro Parodi by Jorge Luis Borges( Book )

9 editions published between 1967 and 2012 in French and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an unusual twist on the traditional armchair detective, Don Isidoro Parodi, jailbird and former barbershop owner, unravels each mystery brought to his cell by a host of flamboyant characters, parodies of different elements of Argentinean society. Among these, an easily duped journalist, an actor who gives a new meaning to egotism, and members of a Buenos Aires literary circle, each more absurd than the next, are some of the clientele who stop by the prison to see if don Ididoro is "in" for a consult. As with most of Borges' fiction, there are ample literary references; these add to the unrelenting and cutting humor wielded against Argentinean intellectuals, but the characters speak for themselves. Some of the plots are as farfetched as the characters, including a diamond stolen from Russian royalty and a precious stone lifted from a Chinese temple; others, such as "Free Will and the Commendatore," underscore philosophical problems. The stories are playful even when they are serious; H. Bustos Domecq does not miss an opportunity to poke fun at the characters, and the authors, Borges and Casares, take every chance to make much of Bustos Domecq, their illustrious pseudonym

Les textes rassemblés ici ont été écrits, entre 1923 et 1975, pour servir de préfaces à des ouvrages d'une grande diversité (##Oeuvres## de Lewis Carroll, ##La métamorphose## de Kafka, ##Les noms de la mort## de M. E. Vazquez, etc.) Ils ont "acquis avec le temps une parfaite autonomie" et constituent une partie très significative dans l'oeuvre d'un auteur - lecteur qui a "tiré l'essentiel de sa littérature de la Littérature" (H. Bianciotti). Un "essai d'autobiographie", p. 267-337, complète le volume. Il a été dicté en anglais en 1970. L'auteur y évoque ses voyages, sa parenté, ses lectures, etc. Il y fait aussi de douces confidences: "Quand j'étais jeune, je voyais la littérature comme un jeu d'habiles et surprenantes variations", etc. Très recommandé
