El hacedor

“Yo vivo, yo me dejo vivir, para que Borge pueda tramar su literatura y esa literatura me justifica”. —De “Borges y yo”
Considerado por el mismo Borges como su libro más own, El hacedor explora los angeles relación entre el mundo inside y external del artista, el misterioso espacio entre sus sueños y los angeles vida genuine. Un maravilloso cruce de géneros y temáticas, los relatos, ensayos y poemas de esta colección reflejan muchas de las preocupaciones centrales que recorren toda l. a. obra borgiana. En fascinantes escritos como “Diálogo sobre un diálogo”, “La trama”, “Dreamtigers”, y “Borges y yo”, entre otros muchos, Borges examina l. a. serenidad de l. a. mente creativa, el espectáculo de su figura pública, y mira hacia el más allá: el mundo eterno en el que sus libros continuarán dialogando con l. a. literatura common mucho después de que él mismo haya desaparecido. Valorado por los angeles crítica como una de las obras más importantes del siglo xx, El hacedor es un extraordinario ejemplo del poder del maestro argentino, el alcance de su visión creativa y su inagotable contribución  a los angeles literatura.
