Some echoes of Dante in the Borgesian prose: The Aleph as a rewriting of the Paradise

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Borges; Dante; Aleph; Paradiso; Eternity.

This essay presents a comparative study between J.L. Borges and Dante Alighieri. Borges' "Aleph" will be linked to Dante's "Paradise" in order to show some conceptual and narratological connections, such as the temporal eternity merged in a point like space; the linguistic-cognitive ineffability of the contemplative ecstasy; and the semiotic nature of the visionary images.
