Jorge Luis Borges

24 Aug 1899 - 14 Jun 1986

Borges was an Argentine writer, essayist, and poet born in Buenos Aires.

His most famous books, Ficciones (1944) and The Aleph (1949), are compilations of short stories interconnected by common themes: dreams, labyrinths, libraries, fictional writers and works, religion, God. Scholars have noted that Borges's progressive blindness helped him to create innovative literary symbols through imagination since "poets, like the blind, can see in the dark". The poems of his late period dialogue with such cultural figures as Spinoza, Luís de Camões, and Virgil. (Source.)
