About the Book

A collection of essays on Jorge Luis Borges by his long-time friend and collaborator.

Jorge Luis Borges - Argentine poet, essayist, and short-story writer - is widely considered one of the giants of 20th-century world literature.

Norman Thomas di Giovanni worked alongside Borges for a number of years creating English translations of his work, the only translations personally overseen by Borges himself. In The Lesson of the Master, a memoir and essays, he writes about his time with Borges but also offers us a unique insight on the man and his work.

It is an indispensable volume for Borges readers and his growing legion of students and scholars.
