About this book

The Argentinian writer and poet Jorge Luis Borges (1899-1986) was many things during his life, but what has gone largely unnoticed is that he was a medievalist, and his interest in Germanic medievalism was pervasive throughout his work. This study will consider the medieval elements in Borges creative work and shed new light on his poetry.

About the authors

M.J. Toswell is a Professor of English at the University of Western Ontario, Canada.

Reviews

"For scholars of medieval studies who have yet to read Borges, Toswell's analysis of how Borges used (and, in a sense, lived) medievalism will serve as a sustained and earnest argument for why you should do so immediately." - Medievally Speaking
