Jorge Luis Borges (1899-1986) was the author of Labyrinths and Ficciones, among other books.
John M. Fein, professor of Romance languages at Duke University, is the author of Modemismo in Chilean Literature: The Second Period.
Eliot Weinberger's books of literary essays include Karmic Traces, An Elemental Thing, The Ghosts of Birds, and Angels & Saints. His political writings are collected in What I Heard About Iraq and What Happened Here: Bush Chronicles. The author of a study of Chinese poetry translation, 19 Ways of Looking at Wang Wei, he is a translator of the poetry of Bei Dao and the editor of The New Directions Anthology of Classical Chinese Poetry. He was formerly the general editor of the series Calligrams: Writings from and on China and the literary editor of the Murty Classical Library of India. Among his many translations of Latin American poetry and prose are The Poems of Octavio Paz, Paz's In Light of India, Vicente Huidobro's Altazor, Xavier Villaurrutia's Nostalgiafor Death, and Jorge Luis Borges' Seven Nights and Selected Non-Fictions. He has been publishing with New Directions since 1975.


Like the great artists of other centuries, he engages the heart as well as the intelligence; his genius strikes, undismayed as Theseus, through the labyrinths of our life and time to the accomplishment of new, inspiring and stunningly beautiful work.--John Barth
Some of the most witty, uncannily original short fiction in Western Literature.-- "The New Yorker"
As Carlos Fuentes remarked, without Borges, the modern Latin American novel simply would not exist.--Gene H. Bell "The Nation"
