Jorge Luis Borges Ê 9 Review

El Informe de Brodie supone una evolución imprevista en la estética de Jorge Luis Borges. In his old age Borges using Kipling s Plain Tales from the Hills as his model crafted these deceptively straightforward narratives in a new laconic style Argentinian history the half savage Pampas the criminals of the Buenos Aires slums and duels both actual and metaphorical are the subjects of these tales They are all worthwhile and three of them The Interloper The Encounter and the Gospel According to Mark are as good as anything he ever wrote

El informe de Brodie

A diferencia de El Aleph y Ficciones ue abundan en enigmas y en símbolos los once cuentos. I can t say whether the story was true the important thing was that it had been told and believed I have the Collected Fictions with copious translator s notes but am splitting my review of that into its components listed in publication order Collected Fictions all reviews This is the seventh published in 1970 The Encounter is a crucial story describing a seminal episode in JLB s childhood suggesting the roots of so many of his recurring themesForewordThis prepares the chronological reader for a significant change of style these are plain tales that avoid unexpected endings in the mould of Kipling JLB asserts that he JLB is not a fabulist or spinner of parables and that his tales are intended not to persuade readers but to entertain and touch them Most have an introductory section explaining the allegedly true roots of the story while conceding he may yield to the literary temptation to heighten or insert the occasional small detail For many years I believed that it would be my fortune to achieve literature through variations and novelties now that I am seventy years old I think I have found my own voice I confess I was slightly disappointed this led me to expect something closer to A Universal History of Iniuity than the extraordinary pieces in between that and this But I was heartened by the fact they are set at some distance in both time and space and that although they are realistic two of the stories can be opened with the same fantastic key I am decidedly monotonous Having finished this collection they are deeper and mysterious than those in A Universal History but straightforward than those in betweenFor all that these are plain two stories suggest the importance of imagination In The Other Duel it s the familiarity of killing animals and the lack of imagination that makes killing people so easy and in Brodie s Report the Yahoos lack of imagination makes them cruel He makes no mention here or in the stories themselves of his blindness unlike In Praise of Darkness reviewed as part of Dreamtigers I suppose he was long used to it by thenThe InterloperThis concerns knife fighters in harsh neighbourhoods Familiar territory but not really my thing I assumed incorrectly that this would set the tone for all those that followedFortunately this was deeper and complex than it seemed at first sight Unfortunately it was pretty grim Brothers who might be deemed white trash in the US are very close falling out with one of them was to earn yourself two enemies The eponymous interloper is a woman who cleaves them in both senses tofrom each other view spoilerOne marries her for service than a relationship but the other loves her too though I would dispute the word love They agree to share her If you want her use her There is no mention of her opinion but she does what s demanded with beast like submissiveness When jealousy becomes too much they sell her to a brothel but both sneak out to visit her there so they buy her back More jealousy So they kill her Now they were linked by yet another bond the woman grievously sacrificed and the obligation to forget her hide spoiler Poslije svega (After, publication order Collected Fictions all
