Book Description

This book examines the interface between two revolutionary writers of the twentieth century, James Joyce and Jorge Luis Borges. It argues that Borges created himself as a 'precursor' of Joyce and discusses the way in which Borges and Joyce conjured up the ghosts of Homer, Dante, and Shakespeare.
