Dreamtigers by Jorge Luis Borges


Only 1 remaining

Borges offers a feast of magical prose filled with symbolism, parables, and visions of tigers. Dreamtigers is a collection of poems, short essays and literary sketches, considered the Argentine author's most personal work. 

'Leaving behind the babble of the plaza, I enter the Library. I feel, almost physically, the gravitation of the books, the enveloping serenity of order, time magically desiccated and preserved.'

'We drew our heavy revolvers, all at once there were revolvers in the dream, and joyously put the Gods to death.'
