International Conference: Borges's Legacy around the world, Readers and Readings
Borges' s texts continue to travel around the world; they have been translated into several languages and continue to fascinate and fertilize world literature. Few writings have inspired so many writers and critics in all disciplinary fields. Borges´s writings have not only constituted an inexhaustible universal inter-text but also give its readers an infinite and constantly renewed pleasure. More than a century after his birth and more than thirty years after his death, this author is more alive than before. His writing becomes the allegory of human thought that, through an elegant language, reflects his thoughts, dreams and emotions. This Argentinean author's literature reflects the complexity of the modern world through brief, concise but profound forms of writing.
