Little-Known Borges Short-Story Published in Spain

MADRID – A little-known short story written by Argentine author Jorge Luis Borges and published in his homeland in 1955 has been released in Spain to mark the 110th anniversary of his birth.

The story, written in collaboration with Luisa Mercedes Levinson, has been published in a special bibliophile edition with a print run of 100 numbered copies and illustrations by Argentina’s Antonio Segui.

“La hermana de Eloisa” (Eloisa’s Sister) has been published by Centro de Editores, which specializes in handcrafted books and the dissemination of Latin American culture.

A exhibition on Borges (1899-1986) was inaugurated Thursday at the offices of that publishing house and includes the story’s original illustrations, photographs of the Argentine author, and books written by Segui.

The 17-page story about an architect commissioned to build a chalet was published in Buenos Aires in 1955 and never re-published; it was written as a collaboration between Borges and Mercedes Levinson (1904-1988), who used the pseudonym Lisa Lenson.

Considered a forerunner of magical realism and a path-breaking and eccentric woman for her era, Levinson’s titles include “El estigma del tiempo” (The Stigma of Time) and “La isla de los organilleros” (The Island of the Organ Grinders). EFE
