Download E-books Dos fantasías memorables. Un modelo para la muerte PDF

By Jorge Luis Borges, Adolfo Bioy Casares

«Cuando escribimos juntos —decía Borges—, cuando colaboramos, nos llamamos H. Bustos Domecq: Bustos period un bisabuelo mío y Domecq un bisabuelo de Bioy. A los angeles larga, (Bustos Domecq) nos manejó con vara de hierro, y para nuestra diversión, y después para nuestra consternación, llegó a ser muy diferente a nosotros, con sus propios caprichos, sus propios chistes, su propia y muy elaborada manera de escribir». Dos libros inspirados por él se publicaron en 1946. Uno fue ‘Dos fantasías memorables’, bajo su ‘propia’ firma: el primer cuento, “El testigo”, trata de una niña que tiene una visión aterradora; en cambio el segundo, “El signo”, describe los angeles visión reconfortante de un gastrónomo. ‘Un modelo para los angeles muerte’, por su parte, fue firmado por un discípulo —también ficticio— de Bustos Domecq. Fingía ser un relato policial, enmarcado en el universo del anterior ‘Seis problemas para don Isidro Parodi’: «… period tan own, y tan lleno de bromas privadas, que sólo lo publicamos en una edición que no estaba destinada a los angeles venta. Al autor de ese libro lo llamamos B. Suárez Lynch. los angeles B period, supongo, los angeles de Bioy y Borges, el Suárez correspondía a otro bisabuelo mío y el Lynch a un bisabuelo de Bioy». El sello editorial, ‘Oportet & Haereses’, aludía al oporto y al jerez. «Al comienzo hicimos bromas, y después bromas sobre bromas, como en el álgebra; bromas al cuadrado, bromas al cubo… y al ultimate abandonamos el juego que se volvía incomprensible…»
