“No other city in the world shouts with more strength: Verbalize me!”

“El primer narrador totalmente centrado en la ciudad, hijo de la urbe que corre por sus venas con palabras, rumores, silencios y orquestraciones de piedra, pavimiento y vidrio,es Jorge Luis Borges.”-Carlos Fuentes

“The first narrator completely based on the city, son of the metropolis that runs through his veins with words, rumours, silences, and orquestrations of stone, pavement and glass, is Jorge Luis Borges.” -Carlos Fuentes

Me gusta tanto que no me gusta que le gusta a otras personas: es un amor asi, celoso.”              -Jorge Luis Borges

“I love it so much that I dont like it when other people do too: its that kind of love, the jealous kind.”

Buenos Aires es la exaltación de las cosas insignificantes, pobres o vetustas, que Borges torna fuertemente significantes por medio de primer planos, de la manera de las películas expresionistas: un cartel despintado, una higuera asomando sobre un pared, un carro abandonado, el arco de un zaguán.”

“Borges’ Buenos Aires is the exaltation of insignificant things, poor or ancient, that he turns strongly significant through first plans, like expressionist films: a chipping painted sign, a fig tree fallen upon a wall, an abandoned car, the arch of a hallway.”
