Borges and Borges and I

The first time I came across Borges and Borges was a few months ago when I thought they were not two but just one. Some times Borges thought he was Borges, not the other Borges who writes literature. In fact he confessed he had serious disagreements with the other Borges on some vital matters concerning life and literature. But of course he admits the other Borges is the raison d’etre for his existence as he alone writes literature but it is on this Borges (i.e. he himself) he writes all that literature.

 

All this confusion about the real Borges makes me want to believe that they are two of them. It is safer to believe that. One of these days I propose to have a serious discussion with both in order to clear the confusion.
