I realize several of these articles must discuss the very same thing, but not the ones I happen to have stumbled upon.
Let us concern ourselves, however, with a few main points. Bouret, Eliot admits lines from Goldsmith, from Baudelaire, and from Verlaine. But Paladion, in , had already gone further.
I loved these intricate jewels of satires, with their wordplay and creative extension of experiments in performance art, minimalism, etc. Maybe my favorite is the writer Tulio Herrera of works in which most words are removed from first drafts until only cryptic limns of the content remain.
I, on the other hand, poor and unwell, Have no roof over my head at all. Another unforgettable cameo [the arsenic was unnecessary]…This scene, which crowns the novel, had been planned by Herrera with an excessive array of details, but, so as not to have to leave it out, he never actually wrote it. Another favorite is the outcome of a conference on whether History is art or science. The attendees vote that History is an act of faith, and that every nation can have the history it wants by forsaking facts and claiming its wished-for, if counter-factual, outcomes to wars and colonization.
Lurking on every page are hidden jokes. He had enemies named Zenith the Albino, Dr. Judging by the style, however, I suspect that they penned profiles independently. Some show the convoluted phrasing of Borges, where one has to read a sentence three times, once for each dependent clause, and others a more straightforward approach which presumably is the mark of Bioy-Casares.
A lot of fun on many levels. Cosa fanno i due copisti-imbecilli di Flaubert prima di mettersi a copiare? Pagano quindi questo salto nel vuoto, questa marea di tempo perso con l'agricoltura, l'astronomia, l'anatomia, la letteratura ecc Le cronache sono il libro dove aleggia, come una specie di atmosfera macabra, la risata amara, grottesca del duo.
Sono come dei mirabilia, bizzarrie in una wanderkammer, fanno ridere. E' legata a un cortocircuito culturale che impedisce all'uomo la comprensione dei significati ultimi. Con cosa possiamo consolarci? Spostando la letteratura, allungando il lancio della nostra lenza. View all 3 comments. May 14, Daniel Polansky added it Shelves: fiction. A pedant reviews a series of imaginary though plausible artistic trends; unreadable books, indigestible food, uninhabitable buildings. Basically a series of clever jabs at post-modernism, the sort of conceptual art which imagines itself superior to form and has been turning out clones of DuChamp's fountain for going on a century.
It's a little one note, but then again I can get down with anyone taking a fat crap on Le Corbusier. Fuck that dude. The poor citizens of Brasilia, forced to grapple A pedant reviews a series of imaginary though plausible artistic trends; unreadable books, indigestible food, uninhabitable buildings.
The poor citizens of Brasilia, forced to grapple forever with the conceptual monstrosities of an aesthetic cripple. I'm getting off topic. It's ridiculous and I love it. Feb 26, Tom Lichtenberg rated it it was amazing Shelves: latin-american-literature , twentieth-century-literature. This is a fun, light-hearted collection of "reviews" of non-existent works by non-existent authors.
Never mean-spirited, Borges and Bioy-Casares take on the persona of Bustos Domecq, a member of a fictional in-crowd of Argentine literary circles. Their subjects cover a wide range of the arts, though mostly centered on poetry, whose luminaries include one whose several books each consist of a single word, and one who plagiaries not mere passages but entire famous works, and one who is so given to This is a fun, light-hearted collection of "reviews" of non-existent works by non-existent authors.

It almost makes you wish they were all real. View 2 comments. Von denen ich der Freundschaft bis zum Tod etwas abgewinnen kann.
Aber der Rest ist nicht besonders aufregegend. Recommended to Leonardo by: Cecilia. Shelves: anthology , humour , latin-america , mystery-and-horror , novels-and-short-stories , 20th-century , crime. En resumen, una joya poco conocida a la que vale la pena acercarse. View 1 comment. Jun 09, Tom rated it really liked it.
Two top writers from Argentina Borges and the under-appreciated Adolfo Bioy-Casares compose a series of mock essays about various fictional Modernist cliques, sub-sub-movements, and figures. Even these parodies—what Borges and Bioy-Casares cranked out, seemingly based on passing whims—have had the power to impress following generations of Latin and Spanish literature.
Agrego que lo gracioso es que Nerenstein los contaba muy mal y que la gente de la zona los mejoraba. Contaba mal sus invenciones porque sabia que el "La respuesta confirmo mi brusca sospecha.
Un libro de humor que sabe demasiado a viejo. Pero en pedante. Le quedan cosas que decir pero el humor resulta repetitivo. Y pedante. Es gracioso, con un humor literario que no se encuentra seguido. Mar 15, Aaron rated it really liked it Shelves: experimental-literature , literature.
This isn't a major work of Borges, but it's fun, witty, and creative. It consists of a series of reviews of imaginary works of literature and art. The chapter on food is an uncanny prediction of molecular gastronomy. Apr 29, Justin Covey rated it really liked it. Delightful walk through the humorous corollaries of Borges ideas.
Estos cuentos son parte de las ediciones de Bustos Domecq. Las bromas que surgieron dieron pie a los escritos de Bustos Domecq y a las investigaciones de Don Isidro Parodi.
H. Bustos Domecq
Bustos Domecq made his first appearance as F. Francisco Bustos, the pseudonym under which Borges, in , published his first fictional story, now known as "Hombre de la esquina rosada", "Man from the Pink Corner" but originally titled "Hombre de las orillas" "Man from the Slums" or more literally "Man from the Outskirts" , Francisco Bustos being the name of "one forefather's forefather". He changed his first initial and acquired a second surname which in Argentina connotes either "old money" or simply, as in the rest of Latin America , the mother's maiden name as Borges and Bioy Casares later used the pseudonym "H. Bustos Domecq" for some of their lighter works. According to Borges, Bustos was the name of one of his great-grandfathers, while Domecq was the name of one of Bioy's great-grandfathers. Both dealt with the exacerbated sense of manhood among the compadritos in the slums of Buenos Aires circa
