Summary

Homenaje a los bestiarios medievales, El libro de los seres imaginarios es una sucesión de retratos de animales fantásticos en el que se combinan la fábula y la reflexión metafísica. Con ironía, erudición e inteligencia Jorge Luis Borges lleva a los lectores por los pasadizos históricos de la imaginación, revelando formas y seres insólitos que van desde el hipogrifo concebido por los griegos como una mezcla de águila, león y serpiente hasta un monstruo informe solo soñado por Kafka. Este extraordinario viaje por la historia literaria es también una exploración de las obsesiones, los miedos y los anhelos de la humanidad.

«Uno de los gigantes de la literatura del siglo XX, Borges ha enriquecido enormemente las texturas del vocabulario propio de nuestras fantasías y especulaciones». —Ian McEwan

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

A tribute to medieval bestiaries, The Book of Imaginary Beings is a collection of fantastic animals in which fable and metaphysical reflection combine. With irony, erudition, and intelligence, Jorge Luis Borges brings the reader to the historical corridors of imagination, revealing unusual beings that range from the Greek hippogriff (part eagle, part lion, and part serpent) to a formless monster Kafka dreamed of. This extraordinary journey through literature is also an exploration of humanity’s obsessions, fears and longings.
