After virtually a part a century of scrupulous devotion to his artwork, Jorge Luis Borges in my opinion compiled this anthology of his work—short tales, essays, poems, and short mordant “sketches," which, in Borges's arms, tackle the scale of a style distinct in glossy letters.
In this anthology, the writer has prepare these items on which he would prefer his acceptance to relaxation; they don't seem to be prepared chronologically, yet with an eye fixed to their “sympathies and differences." a private Anthology, for this reason, isn't really in basic terms a suite, yet a brand new composition.
Si Le mystery de l. a. petite chambre est écrit en une langue extrêmement raffinée et composé avec une grande habileté, sa haute tenue s'accompagnant d'un sort délibérément archaïque, dans los angeles Fille au chapeau rouge, c'est l'observation qui prend le pas sur le variety : fioriture et outrance sont écartées au revenue d'une description qui se veut sans fard.
Ecrits au début des années vingt, interdits par l. a. censure et publiés sous le manteau, ces récits érotiques attribués à deux écrivains majeurs de l. a. littérature japonaise contemporaine, Kafu et Akutagawa, n'ont, singulièrement, pas encore paru au grand jour et sous une forme pleine et entière au Japon.
