5.0 out of 5 stars a writer born of Spanish language with the soul of an Englishman, 23 Aug. 2009
This review is from: Ficciones (Paperback)
Jorge Luis Borges was a tormented man with scarce private life. These short tales are superb, with enormous erudition as all his work, including mystery tales; (it's said he was one of the persons who had read more books in the world).
But Borges,who also mastered English including archaical English between another languages, is a writer with a style strange to the Spanish soul and costumes, and he truly said so discrete but in a sarcastical way. He admired England and was buried finally in Switerland, as le loved Geneva much more than Argentina, or it seems so.
Well, the opposite case of British authors with Spanish soul also happens.

Paul Walsh says:
If you are aware of any Spanish whatsoever you will know that 'between' is a mistake where he intended to write the translation of 'entre.'

And I don't think this is too bad, all but the last two sentences are referring to his writing.
