Forthcoming with Lexington Books:
The analysis of Borges’s works has been largely developed through the lens of literary and cultural studies, and not by political theorists who bring a distinct disciplinary perspective. This book explores in which aspects and around which topics Borges finds inspiration and gives literary form to the political. His texts abound with concepts and events such as liberty, individuality, war, and revolution. The author also addresses Borges’s critique of populism and militarism as related to salient national and global events. Above all, it calls attention to Borges’s belief in the pre-eminence of individual liberty, his rejection of political oppression, and his warning against civic indifference brought about by an isolated individualism.
