By Daniel Balderston

"Balderston's compilation is outlined via its subtitle. The paintings is a entire hard work of literary love offering for the committed Borges fan or pupil the positioning in his works of allusions to humans, titles, and locations. the main amazing side of the compilation, except the sheer enthusiasm essential to adopt and whole it, is the breadth and intensity of Borge's wisdom, which encompasses all cultures and every age. The index provides a feeling of Borge's encyclopedic brain. apart from testifying to Borge's brilliance, the index could be priceless for college students of Hispanic literature and of Borge's himself...."-Choice

"Este índice, que cataloga más de 100.000 alusiones explícitas o implícitas, citas y referencias de todo tipo, contenidas en l. a. obra borgesiana, está estructurado en tres partes, que respectivamente clasifican las referencias a personas, títulos y lugares. El corpus indexado por Balderston incluye l. a. obra completa de Borges (edición de Emecé 1974, a l. a. que agrega El tamaño de mi esperanza y el fabric reunido por Carlos Meneses en Poesía juvenil de Jorge Luis Borges), más los angeles obra en colaboración (Emecé 1979); incorpora también algunas colecciones realizadas de artículos (sobre cine, Dante), pero deja de lado las entrevistas realizadas a Borges (con excepción de Borges Oral, Buenos Aires: Emecé/Universidad de Belgrano, 1979) y los artículos no publicados en colección. Así como el índice de “personas” registra las referencias a dioses, monstruos, personas reales y personajes ficticios, el de títulos incluye obras reales y apócrifas, mientras que el catálogo de lugares se compone casi exclusivamente de referencias a lugares reales. A pesar de l. a. cantidad de referencias repertoriadas por Balderston, éste califica su esfuerzo de un “primer paso” que podrá ser continuado y mejorado no sólo cuando se cuente con una edición completa de las obras de Borges, sino cuando dicha edición se vea libre de los errores, omisiones y alteraciones que actualmente contiene. Balderston admite en l. a. “Introducción” que su obra tiene las fuerzas y debilidades atribuibles a todo fruto de una empresa person: las anotaciones más completas se encuentran en aquellas entradas que pueden rastrearse en fuentes generales, como enciclopedias, correspondiendo las más débiles a las referencias a personas. No obstante, para quienes usan este índice, lo que incidence es l. a. admiración ante los angeles valiosísima información que el inteligente esfuerzo de una sola personality ha acumulado de los angeles A a l. a. Z. El registro del denso universo borgesiano va desde “Aachen” a “Zurich”, desde “Aarón” a “Zwingli” y desde “A buen toro mejor buey” a “Zohar”.
