Handpicked works from the greatest Argentinian writer of the twentieth century. “Without Borges the modern Latin American novel simply would not exist” (Carlos Fuentes, author and diplomat). After almost a half a century of scrupulous devotion to his art, Jorge Luis Borges personally compiled this anthology of his work—short stories, essays, poems, and brief mordant “sketches,” which, in Borges’s hands, take on the dimensions of a genre unique in modern letters. In this anthology, the author has put together those pieces on which he would like his reputation to rest; they are not arranged chronologically, but with an eye to their “sympathies and differences.” A Personal Anthology, therefore, is not merely a collection, but a new composition. “An important work, by far the best yet available to the reader . . . who seeks a representative sampling of the great Argentine writer . . . the standard introduction to Borges in England and the United States.” —Saturday Review

This is the last complete book published during Levi's lifetime to be translated into English and offers one final look into the mind of one of the most compelling and tragic witnesses of the twentieth century. In THE SEARCH FOR ROOTS, Levi has selected the thirty pieces of prose and poetry most important to him. In doing so, he considers how many of our 'roots' come from the books we've read, and reveals a great deal about both his own tastes and his intellectual preoccupations. Levi's many fans will be fascinated by the pieces he has chosen - with authors selected ranging from Homer, Swift and Melville to Darwin, Marco Polo and a scientist on Black Holes.
