Whether discussing metaphor, epic poetry, the origins of verse, poetic meaning, or his own "poetic creed", Borges gives a performance as entertaining as it is intellectually engaging. A lesson in the love of literature and in the making of a unique literary sensibility, this is a sustained encounter with one of the writers by whom the 20th century will be long remembered.
