“Pensé en un laberinto de laberintos, en un sinuoso laberinto creciente que abarcara el pasado y el porvenir y que implicara de algún modo los astros”. —Jorge Luis Borges
Ficciones es quizá el libro más reconocido de Jorge Luis Borges, compuesto por los libros El jardín de senderos que se bifurcan y Artificios, ambos considerados piezas fundamentales del universo borgiano. Entre los cuentos que aquí se reúnen hay algunos de corte policial como “La muerte y l. a. brújula”, los angeles historia de un  detective que investiga el asesinato de un rabino; otros sobre libros imaginarios como “Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius”, una extraordinaria reflexión sobre l. a. literatura y su influencia en el mundo físico;  y muchos pertenecientes al género fantástico como “El Sur”, acaso su mejor relato, en palabras del mismo autor.

Fascinante y sorprendente, Ficciones le brinda al lector un mundo de reflexiones sobre las convenciones de lectura y el modo de entender l. a. realidad.

GENERAL REDUCTION in all items of CHANDLERY. [. ] JAMES L. , begs to announce to his Friends and the Public that he has OPENED his office at 31, EDENQUAY, where he proposes carrying on in the Coal Trade. N. promises good value to those who favour him with their orders. Sober and informative though these announcements might be, the eye is not caught as it is by the Hyam’s verse copy.

The remediation of Irishness in key parts of contemporary popular culture, such as dance and sport, is one of the defining characteristics of the Revival, and this phenomenon, we want to argue, was also evident in advertising copy. In a famous 1892 lecture which is perhaps the founding document of the Irish Revival, Douglas Hyde had called for ‘The Necessity for De-Anglicising Ireland’, and commercial culture, with its frequent genuflection to English products, was one place ripe for de-Anglicisation alongside language, sport and music.
