Sample text

Because writing has neither an essence nor a value of its own, whether positive or negative. ”13 It is not truth because it imitates it; it is not knowledge but appearance; it is not memory but its fixation; nor the word because it silences it. Derrida deconstructs that logocentric obsession that tries to ignore the relevance 18 BORGES of writing: its reserve. Nevertheless, it is that discretion and accumulation, disposition and prudence, that makes of its virtuality a virtue. Against time, writing fixes itself; it spatializes discourse, initiating controversy, giving way to an infinite textual openness: in this abyssal, space-time does not count.

Who can tell the dancer from the dance? —W. B. 41 In Borges’s story, a reader, the reader of the Gospel—and his lectaries42—transgress that silent condition of reading, and, by reading out loud, suspend the difference, thereby provoking logocentric fascination: the word, the logos, the divine word, are identified in presence. Borges’s theological exercises weave another atrocious version of literary passion: high fidelity puts reading at risk. Because of faith, because of identification, the fidelity manifested by his characters is at least doubled; the risk as well.

His friend Sapek and he reign, in effect, over a kind of activity until then almost unheard of: mystification. 19 A semiotics of narrative texts delves into the existence of possible and impossible worlds originated by the actions of a reader who can only suppose his hypothesis in silence, limited by more or less vicious hermeneutic 34 BORGES circles. But “the observer always interferes with the phenomenon under observation,”20 such that each of his or her possible worlds brings together the comprehension of his readings into a compression that suspends momentarily the other worlds.
