    1. The Zohar for BeginnersJorge Luis Borges’s fascination with the Kabbalah is self-attested and well known. He wrote two substantial pieces on the work and made frequent allusion to it in his themes and stories. I decided to try my hand at some Kabbalah-uncovering by re-reading Other Inquisitions 1937-1952. And seeking of course does mean finding:In ‘The Wall and the Books’ Borges’s perennial and explicitly dialectical theme of revelation and concealment is combined with the theme of etern [...]

    2. I have had the dream several times now, I don’t remember exactly how many. However, after dreaming it a third time, two weeks ago on a moonless night, I began writing down notes about it, and adding details with each successive dreaming. It usually begins with Borges and I playing a video game—sometimes the Wii Chess and sometimes Guitar Hero (the Bob Marley version). After Borges rakes up an obscene number of wins, we sit next to a window, drinking a hot beverage and studying the colorful s [...]

    3. Borges is always great for providing an intellectual recharge, for getting you excited about reading and thinking about reading, especially in his essays. Reading these, it's hard to not be overwhelmed by how vast his erudition is. Classical literature, adventure novels, philosphy, obscure mystical tracts, half forgotten literary criticsm from the 19th century, absolutely everything is grist for his mill. You could probably spend a lifetime just reading everything in the book's index. And yet at [...]

    4. Il trionfo dell'intelligenza."Le filosofie di Heidegger e di Jaspers fanno di ciascuno di noi l'interessante interlocutore di un dialogo segreto e continuo col nulla o con la divinità; queste discipline, che formalmente possono essere ammirevoli, fomentano l'illusione dell'io che il Vedanta riprova come errore capitale. Sogliono giocare alla disperazione e all'angoscia, ma nel fondo lusingano la vanità; sono, in tale senso, immorali. "() il tempo, facilmente confutabile sul piano sensitivo, no [...]

    5. Trata-se de uma coletânea de ensaios e textos esparsos de Borges que, com certeza, agradará a todos que se interessam por discutir livros e literatura (o tema principal da grande maioria dos textos). É fascinante como Borges navega através dos tempos, recuando até textos mitológicos da Índia, da China, ou textos clássicos gregos, romanos e hebráicos, e traçando paralelos com autores mais contemporâneos dos Séculos XVIII, XIX ou XX.Além dos temas que lhe são sempre caros, o que me s [...]

    6. A momentos demasiado densa y a momentos extraordinaria, esta compilación de textos publicados por Borges en diversos medios impresos funciona como una especie de disección intelectual del autor. Editado cuando Borges había ya perdido por completo la vista, 'Otras inquisiciones' es un testamento de la etapa más creativa del célebre autor argentino, exponiendo en cada uno de los textos que componen al libro miríadas de temas y cuestionamientos, que buscan ahondar en las principales preocupac [...]

    7. Ler Borges é reler Borges: os seus ensaios servem de justificativa para seus contos e seus poemas; estes, por sua vez, justificam aqueles. Menos erudito e acadêmico do que "História da Eternidade" - e, portanto, melhor, ou mais prazeroso -, esse "Outras Inquisições" contém alguns dos meus ensaios favoritos do autor argentino: "A muralha e os livros", "A esfera de Pascal", "A flor de Coleridge" e "O sonho de Coleridge", "O idioma analítico de John Wilkins" (que descreve a impossível encic [...]

    8. Creative and insightful short essays on a variety of literary, historical and philosophical topics. Each essay is like opening the door to a new room in your house, with windows that overlook fantastic but somehow familiar landscapes, so you come away from each new view with a different way of seeing what was already there.

    9. Spectacular word-nerd reading. Some quotes: p.5 - the "imminence of a revelation that is not yet produced is, perhaps, the aesthetic reality." p.7 - (quoting Alain de Lille) "God is an intelligible sphere, whose center is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere." p.9 - "Perhaps universal history is the history of the diverse intonation of a few metaphors." p.14 - "Swinburne felt like what he [Coleridge] had been able to salvage was the supreme example of music in the English language, and [...]

    10. There is a beautiful analysis of Nathaniel Hawthorne (one more precursor to Kafka, created by Kafka! - according to Borges) in this book. I was not aware that Hawthorne's ancestor stood in judgment over the accused at the Salem witch trials, or that Hawthorne spoke against nude sculptures, or that he filled volumes of diaries with details like the movement of a hen or the shadow of a branch (subsequently confounding Henry James!). I remember Hawthorne only through the many short stories I was as [...]

    11. Cuando pensaba en Borges lo visualizaba como en las últimas entrevistas, ya viejo con baston y ciego, pero ahora después de este libro me lo imagino en cualquier biblioteca con varios libros enfrente y tomando apunte tras apunte. Con un lenguaje común, sin la utilización de palabras solo vistas en el diccionario, Borges analiza desde la religión, el tiempo, la filosofía, obras de otros autores, etc. . El lenguaje es sencillo pero los artículo no siempre son fáciles de seguir (al menos en [...]

    12. Aunque no encontré aquí la descripción en español de está obra, editada por EMECÉ Editores, 1960, ArgentinaSerie de ensayos tremendamente borgianos, aunque parezca perogrullo, donde el amor y esa fijación sobre el papel impreso que está siempre en Borges nos regala un paseo cultísimo para conocer sus ideas sobre grandes escritores y sobre la palabra escrita que en él todo lo define.Exquisito y deslumbrante.

    13. Ensayos y pseudoensayos de uno de los pedantes más notables de la literatura universal (alguien, algún día, explicará la vida de Umberto Eco como la de alguien que quiso ser Borges, pero no pudo escribir tan corto -ni tan bien).Una guía precisa para ser un pedante del siglo pasado, lo que hoy en día se me antoja un proyecto sublime.

    14. These essays beautifully show some of the roots of Borges' surreal stories. Borges was an avid reader and extremely well-read, so the connections and conclusions he draws between and from the philosophical edifices of, say, Berkeley and Schopenhauer, or the writings of Kafka etc. are quite illuminating and really open up the horizons of the reader.

    15. Borges escribe de una manera preciosa. El español más pulcro que he leído jamás.De esta colección de escritos me gustaría destacar "Nueva refutación del tiempo". Me divirtió mucho leerla.

    16. Un pequeño libro de ensayos que tiene una enorme belleza de forma. Un libro que despierta la curiosidad y el amor por la literatura pura.

    17. Volver a leer este libro después de leerlo a mis veintitantos fue redescubrirlo como una completa nueva experiencia, pero a la vez fue recordar porqué Borges es uno de mis favoritos.Inquisición es una palabra a la que la historia y la Iglesia se encargaron de darle la connotación negativa con la que hoy muchos la conocemos. Su significado más básico y de los más nobles es el de "acción y efecto de inquirir", de indagar, de examinar con cuidado. Esta colección de ensayos no deja de fasci [...]

    18. Being impressed with Borges' erudition is easy (to get all of the literary and historical references here you'd have to have spent the last solid 20 years of your life reading, and widely), and one can't but love a man who quotes unapologetically in French, Latin, and German and to hell with providing a translation. Yet only a handful of the essays contained here truly grabbed me: "The Enigma of Edward Fitzgerald," "About Oscar Wilde," "On the Cult of Books." Most of the essays contained within [...]

    19. Borges riesce a distillare per noi delle immagini mentali nate millenni fa. Le immagini con gli anni si sono arricchite, raffinate, e lui sceglie quei pochi particolari che ci fanno sentire di più la loro evoluzione. Sentire, più che capire. Non è interessato a spiegarci le cose, ma a farcela sentire a pelle, a farcele intuire, a darci brandelli di assoluto in elementi particolari che ci lascia lungo il cammino. Non troppi, giusto quelli necessari a farci intuire la bellezza e l'universalità [...]

    20. This guy writes for a completely different literary audience than mine. His reviews and commentary follow a different form of organization that convey a really erudite coffee shop conversation. I like to think of this book as time traveling into a cafe in Buenos Aires to discuss the issues of the day. In effect, I am reading for the form much more than the substance and in that regard this book presents a different perspective on viewing the world than i am used to. . Borges is great at conveyin [...]

    21. Una serie di brevi e brevissimi saggi sugli argomenti più svariati, oltre che di lezioni su vari scrittori contemporanei.Il libro è di una erudizione smisurata, e a volta di difficile comprensione per la scelta dell'editore di non tradurre alcune parti (poesie, citazioni), nemmeno sotto forma di note, e questo, per chi non parla spagnolo, è limitante.Alcuni dei saggi sono brucianti, al punto da strappare la risata a causa dell'ironia fustigante che mostrano, altri invece sono lenti e pesanti, [...]

    22. Riacquistato per affetto dopo decenni (letto allora in prestito da un amico matto) grazie a chi me lo ha fatto ricordare. Devo ovviamente rileggerlo, ma ricordo certamente che l'Arte � vendere mobili di legno a chi non li vorrebbe nemmeno per bruciarli, dolci a chi preferisce il salato, carne ai vegetariani e libri simili a me. Un segreto: quando volete parlare di libri, fate come Borges, non posate. Passerete diaframmi altrimenti infrangibili.

    23. The Flower of Coleridge, The Creation of P.H.Gosse, and The Bianthanatos are crucial essays. The Analytical Language of John Wilkins is the basis of an entire chapter of Weinberger's Everything is Miscellaneous.

    24. “La flor de Coleridge” y “El idioma analítico de John Wilkins” quedarán en mi memoria como dos análisis impecables. Como siempre, Borges no me decepciona. Un honor haber leído este libro.

    25. Absolutely wonderful book of essays. You end up feeling wiser and richer and completely in love with Borges' erudition.
