The Quest for God in the Work of Borges (Continuum Literary Studies)

Annette U. Flynn


This booklet argues that the search for God, although mostly unheeded by means of the severe canon, used to be an immense and enduring preoccupation for Borges. this is often proven via cautious research either one of his essays, with their emphasis on his philosophical-theological explorations, and of the narrative articulations that are his tales. it's within the poetry of his heart and shutting years, although, that Borges' seek is so much take place, because it isn't any longer obscured. Spanning varied sessions of his existence, and diversified literary genres, Borges' paintings attests to a maturing and evolving quest.
The ebook unearths Borges' engagement as an energetic and evolving approach and its chronological constitution permits the reader to track his inspiration over the years. Flynn exhibits that the non secular part in Borges' writing drives key texts from the Nineteen Twenties to the Nineteen Eighties.

Offering an interpretation that unlocks a fuller importance of his paintings, she exhibits how Borges' reflections on time and id are symptomatic of a deeper, religious looking out that may simply be responded by way of a Divine Absolute.
