About Painting Borges: Philosophy Interpreting Art Interpreting Literature (SUNY Series in Latin Americ...

In this groundbreaking book, Jorge J. E. Gracia explores the artistic interpretation of fiction from a philosophical perspective. Focusing on the work of Jorge Luis Borges, one of the most celebrated literary figures of Latin America, Gracia offers original interpretations of twelve of Borges s most famous stories about identity and memory, freedom and destiny, and faith and divinity. He also examines twenty-four artistic interpretations of these stories two for each by contemporary Argentinean and Cuban artists such as Carlos Estevez, Leon Ferrari, Mirta Kupferminc, Nicolas Menza, and Estela Pereda. This philosophical exploration of how artists have interpreted literature contributes to both aesthetics and hermeneutics, makes new inroads into the understanding of Borges s work, and introduces readers to two of the most vibrant artistic currents today. Color images of the artworks discussed are included."
