Beschreibung"I can think of no other scholar of Latin American literature who enjoys and amply deserves the reputation of Sylvia Molloy. She is a brilliant reader and an elegant writer, the one scholar who makes Borges accessible without making him simple."--Doris Sommer, Amherst College

Pressestimmen"Regarded by many as one of the best critical books on Borges, Signs of Borges now appears for the first time in English. Using a critical perspective informed by theorists such as Barthes, Lacan, Foucault, and Blanchot, Molloy engages in a critical exploration of meaning in Borges' work that preserves the sense of uncanniness, tension, and instability that she believes defines that work." Translation Review "I can think of no other scholar of Latin American literature who enjoys and amply deserves the reputation of Sylvia Molloy. She is a brilliant reader and an elegant writer, the one scholar who makes Borges accessible without making him simple." - Doris Sommer, Amherst College
