“Armar páginas, corregir pruebas”: Jorge Luis Borges as Author, Editor, and Promulgator

After emerging on the international literary scene in the 1960s, Jorge Luis Borges (1899-1986) became Argentina’s best known writer and a cultural icon. Drawing from the U.Va. Library’s renowned holdings, this exhibition explores Borges’s little-known activities as translator, prologist, editor, and publisher to shed light on his crucial role in shaping Argentine literary canons.
