“An important work, by far the best yet available to the reader . . . who seeks a representative sampling of the great Argentine writer . . . the standard introduction to Borges in England and the United States.”R.G. Mead, Saturday Review
A Personal Anthology

After almost a half a century of scrupulous devotion to his
art, Jorge Luis Borges personally compiled this anthology of his work—short
stories, essays, poems, and brief mordant “sketches,” which, in Borges’s hands,
take on the dimensions of a genre unique in modern letters.
In this anthology, the author has put together those pieces
on which he would like his reputation to rest; they are not arranged
chronologically, but with an eye to their “sympathies and differences.” A Personal Anthology, therefore, is not
merely a collection, but a new composition.
