30 Years Without Borges


The text on the image reads, in a strictly literal (and quick and dirty) translation:

Give me, Lord, courage and joy,
to climb today’s summit.

Those words are the last two verses from James Joyce, a sonnet published in 1968 by Argentine writer Jorge Luis Borges.

Today marks the 30th anniversary of Borges’ passing. But his legacy is enduring. I encourage you to read his works.
