Borges' On Writing is designed to offer a comprehensive and balanced account of the evolution of Borges' thinking on the craft of writing, an intense and perennial concern of his. Borges had a remarkable impact on writers in the USA, Britain, Italy, France and many other countries. His essays were perceived to have anticipated some of the principal topics of modern literary theory, from Russian formalism through to poststructuralism and postmodernism.
