By Jorge Luis Borges, Adolfo Bioy Casares

Un poco a los angeles manera de Carlyle, cuyo ‘Sartor Resartus’ (‘Sastre zurcido’) expone los angeles doctrina de un filósofo imaginario y l. a. ilustra con ejemplos apócrifos, H. Bustos Domecq dedica este volumen a los angeles discusión imparcial de literatos, de escultores, de arquitectos, de gastrónomos y de pintores que, por el momento, no existen, pero que son peligrosamente posibles, dadas las propensiones de l. a. época. El tono es humorístico, según lo impone todo examen severo de las manifestaciones más novedosas del arte y de las letras durante los últimos sesenta años. Veinte crónicas, casi todas de índole narrativa, integran este libro amenísimo, que satiriza lo universalmente consagrado, respetado, adulado y temido: es decir, lo moderno. En el desorientado siglo que corre, l. a. ignorancia y los angeles inepcia son infatigablemente inventivas; nos consta que H. Bustos Domecq ha debido espolear a su Pegaso para que l. a. realidad no lo deje atrás. Según lo señala el prólogo que avalora Gervasio Montenegro, estas impares ‘Crónicas’ constituyen el vademécum quintessential para el curioso que quiera echar una ojeada sobre el conjunto panorámico de los angeles estética en boga. Su redacción jocosa, apunta agudamente «ex cathedra» el profesor adjunto Longino, no excluye el pensamiento serio. Encarnados en l. a. figura de un «egoísta, tránsfuga, mentiroso, fanfarrón y casanova barato», según los angeles descripción de sus ilustres padres, Borges y Bioy Casares crean en estas páginas un fascinante juego de ficciones y espejos que lleva los angeles parodia hasta sus últimas consecuencias.

This wicked tale ends, as many do, in acrimony. Mr. Lane quarreled with Father for forever giving in to Mother, who carried more wisdom in her left thumb than ran through Father’s entire Being. Mr. Lane accused Miss Page of secretly eating the tail of a fish—an accusation that sent her fleeing. Once she was gone, I considered stealing away to her red-blanketed bed with an apple late some night, but never did. For soon as winter white-frosted the distant hills, we were gone, fleeing from Fruitlands, only the latest of our collection in failed experiments.

Mother had known such little happiness—she confided her fears and miseries to me, her eldest. I knew that she was unloved by Father, who possessed only SelfLove. Such is the flaw in God’s design of the sexes—that no true way exists for a woman to find the man who is best suited for her, nor a man to find ideal. Instead, we must cast about in whatever pond we find ourselves near, whether it be filled with fine specimens or eels. So I find myself here at the end of my life, my creel empty, my bait dried.

Standing in the rain there awaited a young man in a brown jacket playing a violin very poorly and grinning like a madhouse denizen. Next to him stood solemn Farmer Palmer, his grey beard as long as that of an Ancient prophet. And rounding out our welcoming committee there was a young insane lad with eyes as glimmering as the whites of an egg. ” the lad shouted up at our wagon. “We’re pleased to see you, you swine and sinners. ” “Pay him no mind, children,” Mother said. ” I shouted, hoping to be amusing.
