Borges, The Universe And The Infinite Library

Paradise = library - Jorge Luis Borges - also worked as a librarian and public lecturer, and was appointed director of the National Public Library and professor of English Literature at the University of Buenos Aires.

Jorge Luis Borges (1899 – 1986) was an Argentine short-story writer, essayist, poet and translator born in Buenos Aires. His work embraces the "character of unreality in all literature". His most famous books, Ficciones (1944) and The Aleph (1949), are compilations of short stories interconnected by common themes such as dreams, labyrinths, libraries, mirrors, animals, fictional writers, philosophy, religion and God.
