His stories often read like thoughtful essays, his essays like poems, and his poems like brief narrations. Borges in conversation similarly transcends and transmutes our expectations of the ordinary colloquy. In the wide-ranging dialogues presented in this volume, the authors thoughts are evoked through the perceptive questioning of Willis Barnstone, John Coleman, Alastair Reid, Dick Cavett, and others.

The resulting interplay between Borges and his interview2ers makes fascinating reading, revealing him as perhaps the premier conversationalist of our time.Borges chats intimately with his audience. A crowd is an illusion... I am talking to you personally, he tells one group. Candor, wit, and humorous self-disparagement mark his responses, as do the Socratic qualities of profound yet amusing meditation and retort. When I wake up, he informs us, I wake to something worse. Its the astonishment of being myself.With the haunting resonance and structure of a fugue, the pervasive themes of Borges works (or exercises as he chooses to call them) are woven throughout these evocative conversations.

The nightmares, labyrinths, mazes, and mystic experiences that are part of Borges creative mythology similarly loom large in his conversations. Revealed here are the interests that have continued to engage the writer-Old English and Old Norse sagas, his favorite authors (notably Whitman, Poe, and Emerson), the Kabbalah-as well as his feeling of what it is like to be blind, and now, in his eighties, his thoughts on death.A dozen of Borges poems are reproduced, both in Spanish and in English translation, followed by remarks on how he came to write them and what they mean.

Willis Barnstones remarkable photographs complete the sensitive word portrait that emerges in Borges at Eighty: Conversations.
