[Borges] renovated the language of fiction and thus opened the way to a remarkable generation of Spanish-American novelists. (J.M. Coetzee, "The New York Review of Books") Hurley's efforts at retranslating Borges are not anything but heroic. His versions are clear, elegant, crystalline. ("The Times Literary Supplement")About the Author:
Borges was born in Buenos Aires in 1899. A poet, critic and short story writer, he received numerous awards for his work including the 1961 International Publisher's Prize (shared with Samuel Beckett). He died in 1986. He has a reasonable claim, with Kafka and Joyce, to be the most influential writer of the twentieth century.
