“The Immortal” (1949)

Creators

Jorge Luis Borges (writer).

Extent

Read in Sun Axelson’s Swedish translation.

Commentary

The height of Borges’s literary genius, including his recurring lament over complexity, in an approachably worldbuilding form that also invites a more practical, even TRPG-friendly interaction. Vastly more clever than its predecessors, such as “The Ring of Thoth” (1890).
