Example text

We shall see in later chapters that this conjunction of the personal and the impersonal, of individuals’ subjective experiences and the objective realities that surround them, is one of the key themes associated with the issue of spatiality in Borges. As mentioned above in relation to the quest motif, the contrast between external and internal, between the outside world and the vicissitudes of the self, is a key element of the way in which space is treated in a story such as ‘La muerte y la brújula’, and the very mention of the compass in the title of that story points to the centrality of the spatial theme in that instance.

The latter introduced the notion of the ‘rhizome’, a term originally used in biology to denote the structure of certain plant-roots, but now applied metaphorically in a wide range of contexts in reference to a pervasive, non-hierarchical network of connections, examples of which include the internet and aspects of the narratological framework of some of Borges’s stories, including, for example, ‘El jardín de senderos que se bifurcan’ [‘The Garden of Forking Paths’], discussed in Chapter 3. The work of Susan Friedman (1993; 2008), meanwhile, brings together acute analysis of specific examples of literary texts with insights into the role of space in narrative, building as it does on the pioneering work of Julia Kristeva (1980) in this field.

Commentators have often focused on the theme of the labyrinth and its symbolic meanings, and the following works, among others, examine this topic: Murillo (1959), Barrenechea (1967), Wheelock (1969), Kapschutschenko (1981: 19–55), Romero (1995), and Butler (2009: 16–37); Garza Saldívar (2009) takes this motif as its general theme, as does another book by Barrenechea (Borges the Labyrinth Maker, 1965). The latter also of fers valuable comments on other spatial aspects of Borges’s work, while the main argument in the book centres on the supposed ‘unreality’ of the universe depicted in the stories, as does that of, for instance, Ferrer (1971).
