At the age of seventy, after a gap of twenty years, Jorge Luis Borges returned to writing short stories. In Brodie's Report and In Praise of Darkness he returned also to the style of his earlier years with its brutal realism, its nightmares and its bloodshed. Many of these stories, such as 'Unworthy' and 'The Other Duel', are set in the macho Argentinian underworld, although even the rivalries between academics or artists, as in 'The Duel', are shot through with suppressed violence. Fascinated yet appalled by the rituals of conquest, betrayal and bloodthirsty revenge, Borges vividly exposes the deepest roots of human cruely and political oppression.

The art of writing is mysterious; the opinions we hold are ephemeral. In these eleven short stories the quality of his inspiration is unmistakable. With their deceptively simple, almost laconic style, they achieve a magical impression that is unrivalled in modern writing.
