Critical sites about The Circular Ruins

Borges: The Blind Visionary
This somewhat disjointed paper, with detailed reference to the movements of modernism and postmodernism, uses the Borges story “The Circular Ruins” to “offer some important insights into the major theoretical premises which Borges subverts and embraces in his own writing. … In short, I will argue that this story enacts postmodernism’s sever questioning of ‘grand histoire’ (Hassan 281), specifically in regards to monotheism and linearity.”
Contains: Historical Context, Content Analysis, Bibliography
