Cy-Borges: Memories of the Posthuman in the Work of Jorge Luis Borges

Front Cover
Stefan Herbrechter, Ivan Callus
Associated University Presse, 2009 - Literary Criticism - 224 pages
"Cy-Borges provides radically new, "posthumanist" readings of such established Borgesian fictions as "The Aleph," "The Library of Babel," "Funes the Memorious," "The Garden of Forking Paths," and "The Circular Ruins." They will be equally illuminating to readers of Hispanic and world literature, as to students of critical and cultural theory, and anybody who is fascinated with the idea of the "posthuman" and "posthumanism.""--BOOK JACKET.
