The Book of Imaginary Beings
- New Translations
Translated from Spanish by Katya Walters
The Book of Imaginary Beings is like an encyclopedia in which J.L. Borges collected hundreds of mythical beasts created for centuries by human imagination and scattered in the theological, mythical or fictional literature across the globe. The book is full of intellect and humor, so typical to Borges, which means you will come across familiar dragons and centaurs, fairies and dwarfs, as well as creatures living behind the mirrors, and many other ones you have never heard of before.
Jorge Luis Borges will once again enrich your literary knowledge, while his insightful and witty comments will definitely paste a smile on your face. The Book of Imaginary Beings will undoubtedly charm the readers of all tastes and ages.
