Translated by Nino Kajaia
The book is a collection of seven lectures delivered by Jorge Luis Borges in the summer of 1977 at the Teatro Coliseo in Buenos Aires.
The great writer talks about Dante’s The Divine Comedy, A Thousand and One Dreams, Buddhism, poetry, nightmares, the Kabbalah, and blindness... He talks very interestingly and dynamically, shares his ideas and impressions, inspires to read or reread the literary masterpieces, to think about the things we haven’t thought about earlier or to look at the literary or real life events from a different point of view.
These are the thoughts of an immensely educated and gifted person, the author of words: “I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.”
Borges’s Seven Nights is the best read for those who truly enjoy the magic of literature.
