Jorge Luis Borges facts

  • His best-known books, Ficciones (Fictions) and El Aleph (The Aleph), published in the 1940s, are compilations of short stories interconnected by common themes, including dreams, labyrinths, libraries, mirrors, fictional writers, philosophy, and religion
  • Borges' works have contributed to philosophical literature and the fantasy genre
  • Critic Ángel Flores, the first to use the term magical realism to define a genre that reacted against the dominant realism and naturalism of the 19th century, considers the beginning of the movement to be the release of Borges' A Universal History of Infamy (Historia universal de la infamia)
  • However, some critics would consider Borges to be a predecessor and not actually a magical realist
  • His late poems dialogue with such cultural figures as Spinoza, Camões, and Virgil
  • In 1914 Borges' family moved to Switzerland, where he studied at the Collège de Genève
  • The family travelled widely in Europe, including stays in Spain
  • On his return to Argentina in 1921, Borges began publishing his poems and essays in surrealist literary journals
  • He also worked as a librarian and public lecturer
  • In 1955 he was appointed director of the National Public Library and professor of English Literature at the University of Buenos Aires
