All are welcome to join MCL poetry circle group to read and discuss Jorge Luis Borges’s poetry. Borges (1899 – 1986), is one of the most important writers of the 20th Century, a major Latin American poet and librarian who once wrote, “I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.” Argentine by birth, but nurtured on universal literature, Borges has effectively influenced the destiny of literature. Borges cultivated three genres: the essay, the poem, and the short story. In creating the most original writing of his time, Borges taught us that creation is recreation, that we are all one contradictory mind, connected amongst each other through time, space and poetry. Sharon, a librarian for the Lawrence Branch, will lead the discussion.
