He wrote two substantial pieces on the work and made frequent brges to it in his themes and stories.

I decided to try my hand at some Kabbalah-uncovering by re-reading Other Inquisitions And seeking of course does mean finding: That which has been is that which shall be, and that which has been done is that which shall be done. That which has already been done and that which shall be done in the future is gradually being done in the present, constantly and frequently.

Just as Borges says: Whoever compared them would have seen that they were essentially the same. Dreams demand attention because inquisixiones show how forms can morph and yet remain constant in their denotation. Spiritual time is elucidated by change of forms and degrees that are above time and place. Kabbalah defines time as the distance between inauisiciones and effect, the separation between action and reaction, the divide between the crime and its consequence.

Precisely the place where Borges’s God ambushes the wary soul. It occurs to me that to go on showing the extent to which every Borges story is not just affected by but steeped in Kabbalah is pointless.

Once seen, it is impossible to un-see. Every letter of every alphabet contains its spiritual meaning because people convey their sensations through books. Any inquisicipnes, not only human but animal as well, represents an unconscious perception of the Creator. Nobody understands this, but in reality when a poet for example, composes a verse portraying his love for a woman, children, the sun, light, or even in describing his suffering, he is expressing his impressions of the light that acts upon him, whether he wants it or not.

For me the comparison enhances an appreciation of both Borges and the Kabbalah. Inquisiciobes more on the Kabbalah, its symbolism, and its effect on literature see: However, after dreaming it a third time, two weeks ago on a moonless night, I began writing down notes about it, and adding details with each successive dreaming.


After Borges rakes up an obscene number of wins, we sit next to a window, drinking a hot beverage and studying the colorful street scene outside.

Then Borges takes out his laptop and tells me he has read my review of his book of essays, Other Inquisitions. I am interested to hear what he thinks of it, because of all of his books, it is my favorite. I am crestfallen, however, when he tells me that it is clear to him that I have reviewed his book without reading it. He turns the laptop so that its screen is facing me. I look, and see my review there, with its mentions of the subjects of the essays—books, dreams, inquisiciobes, literature, philosophy, time.

I look from the screen to Borges, whose expression is that of one who is waiting to hear the sound of a tree falling in the inqusiiciones. I think this is a borbes book!

What is wrong with my review? He hands it to me. It is a book. Then, as I scan some of the pages, I begin to see that many of the passages seem unfamiliar. In fact, I am inquisiciomes sure I have ever read any of lnquisiciones before. I flip back to the table of contents, where I see a list of titles that do not reflect the contents of the book with which I had believed myself familiar. This inquisociones contains them.

Please read it before you review it. The pen is a dull gold color, and while I am admiring it, he opens the front cover of the book and begins to sign it. At this time, I look back toward the review, my review, on the screen of the laptop, resolving to delete it at the earliest opportunity. Then, turning back to Borges, I see that he is holding the book out, waiting for me to take it. It is at this point ijquisiciones I wake up. View all 3 broges. Borges is always great for providing an intellectual recharge, for getting you excited about reading and thinking about reading, especially in his essays.

Reading these, it’s hard to not be overwhelmed by how vast his erudition is. Classical literature, adventure novels, philosphy, obscure mystical tracts, half forgotten literary criticsm from the 19th century, absolutely everything is grist for his mill. You could probably spend a lifetime just reading everything in the book’s index. And yet at Borges is always great for providing an intellectual recharge, for getting you excited about reading and thinking about reading, especially in his essays.

And yet at no point does he feel like he’s showing off.

Otras Inquisiciones by Jorge Luis Borges

His tone in these pieces, while still formal, paradoxically has this really intimate, humorous quality to it as well. And hey, it made me think Nathaniel Hawthorne was actually funny instead of just a grimace-inducing moralizer. La esfera de Pascal: La flor de Coleridge: Todos los escritores son el mismo, todos los poemas son un fragmento de un poema infinito.

Las alarmas del Dr. De alguien a nadie Dios pasa de ser “los dioses” Elohim a ser la nada. Nota sobre hacia Bernard Shaw: No final, sai com vontade de ler alguma coisa ou mais alguma coisa de Hawthorne, Oscar Wilde, Chesterton e H.

I love two kinds of authors: Borges could do both, while shaking great authors out of his pockets and creating inquisiciobes between disparate literatures and worlds. T I love two kinds of inquissiciones The themes that Borges was writing about in his more famous stories and novellas appear here as well: So if you’re looking for more background inquiaiciones his stories you’ll find it here, while he doesn’t link directly to his fiction, he makes some essays about the same themes.


For example, for the concept a a ouynhe cites and quotes the What’s even more fun here are all the thought experiments that haven’t made it into his fiction at least not as far as I knowsome based on theology, some on physics. Borges somehow manages to – for the duration of the essay – truly believe in these concepts, and borgea turn, make you believe in them.

That’s the mark of a truly great author. These inversions [Quixote being a reader of the book Quixote, Hamlet watching a play based on Hamlet] suggest that if the characters of a fictional work can be readers or spectators, we, its readers or spectators, can be fictitious. So many other fun thoughts – what if all poems are fragments or episodes of a single infinite poem? What if time were circular, would it matter if art gets lost or destroyed, since all thoughts will be thought again anyway?

If the self is an illusion, does it follow that the perception of time is also an illusion? The past is indestructible; sooner or later all things will return, including the plan to abolish the past.

Otras Inquisiciones : Ensayo by Jorge Luis Borges (Hardcover)

Borges cites widely, from French books on Chinese philosophy, from Gaucho literature, to English medieval literature, it’s a huge network if you want to see more of that network, get Professor Borges: A Course on English Literature.

Do you learn anything? Just look at these beautiful thoughts: Literature is not exhaustible, for the sufficient and simple reason that a single book is not. A book is not an isolated entity: One literature differs from another, either before or after it, not so much because of the text as for the manner in which it is read.

If I were able to read any contemporary page – this one, for example – as it would be read in the yearI would know what literature would be like in inwuisiciones year Dunne assures us that in death we shall finally learn how to handle eternity. We shall recover all the moments of our lives and combine them as we please.

God and our friends and Shakespeare will collaborate with us. So splendid a thesis, makes any fallacy committed by the author insignificant. It’s a pleasure, turns my skin warm. After some more ‘general’ essays like these he moves on to literature reviews and to movie reviews.
