"This collection of postcards recreates the world of the gaucho as a code structure in scenes : field work (the roundup, branding, and slaughter of cattle); horse carriage rides; leisure (taba, horse race, dances); grilling the meat over coals, knife duels and romantic scenes are all typical subjects, many of which were borrowed from late 19th century painting"--P.  of cover.

Argentina and translation : delineating a cultural context
Borges on translation : the development of a theory
Writing as translation
The aesthetics of irreverence : mistranslating from the margins
Borges reads Joyce : a meeting at the limits of translation.
This book studies how Borges constructs a theory of translation that plays a fundamental role in the development of Argentine literature, and which, in turn, expands the potential for writers in Latin America to create new and innovative literatures through processes of re-reading, rewriting, and mis-translation. The book analyzes Borges's texts in both an Argentine and a transnational context, thus incorporating Borges's ideas into contemporary debates about translation and its relationship to language and aesthetics, Latin American culture and identity, tradition and originality, and center-periphery dichotomies. Furthermore, a central objective of this book is to show that the study of the importance of translation in Borges and of the importance of Borges for translation studies need not be separated. Furthermore, translation studies has much to gain by the inclusion of Latin American thinkers such as Borges, while literary studies has much to gain by in-depth considerations of the role of translation in Latin American literatures.

Trimming Whiman's Leaves of grass : Borges as translator of Song of myself / Gregary J. Racz.
The essays in this book, ably edited by Dr. Racz, attempt to read Borges in this counter-monumental mode using the centennial of his birth as a point of departure. It is a fitting way to "do" Borges in our tangled era, keenly aware of the perils of public memorializing-in Buenos Aires's Memory Park to the disappeared, in New York's Ground Zero memorial to the blown apart-yet striving for the kind of open and fluid remembrance of the past that encourages new telling(s) of what inevitably will become old tales.
