Über diesen Titel


A must for anyone interested in the work of the great Argentinian writer, Jorge Luis Borges. Prof. Garayalde settles many of the puzzles and misinterpretations of his works in a very concise and convincing account both of the Sufis and their work--with which she became familiar long before she approached Borges' own--and of the many parallels in ideas and in actual tales that are included in his work.

This is an ideal introduction to Sufi thought for anyone who is searching for a greater understanding of life and him/herself through literature.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Bernárdez: There is no doubt that wisdom, in the great epochs, was of an initiatory character, something not sold in the market. It has to have, in the first place, conditions for receiving and being given it.

Borges: Now, in contrast, it is assumed that ignorance is meritorious--We are heirs to the Western tradition and to what we can acquire of the Eastern as well.

We have been selling academic and scholarly books in Cambridge since 1996. Today we occupy an old warehouse on Coldhams Road, adjacent to the railway tracks leading to Ely, not too far from the airport. The site is called Restwell House. We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
