Review of “The Immortal” (1949)
Jorge Luis Borges (writer).
Read in Sun Axelson’s Swedish translation.
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).
