Description Using the concept of ‘late style’ established by Adorno (1993) in his analysis of the last quartets of Beethoven and adopted up by Said (2006), we consider the mature Borges’s essays on time and immortality and his exploration of the themes of The Double and insomnia in his fictional works Stories of the Book of Sand and poem The Cipher. We analyse some key characteristics of Borges’s style – coincidences and dissidences – and compare them to those proposed by Adorno for artistic production in later years.
En el año 1978 a los 79 años, Borges dicta una serie de conferencias que fueron publicadas al año siguiente, en 1979, en una compilación cuyo título es Borges oral. Los temas, confiesa Borges en el prólogo a este libro, fueron aquellos temas que el tiempo le había consustanciado. En este sentido, podríamos pensar que las circunstancias en las que Borges dicta las conferencias y prologa este libro, coinciden con las que Adorno (2003) y Said (2009) definieron como características de lo que han dado en llamar un estilo tardío.
Članek na podlagi koncepta pozni slog, kakor ga je opredelil Adorno (1993) v analizi zadnjih Beethovnovih kvartetov in po njem povzel Said (2006), proučuje Borgesova besedila iz zrelega obodbja: eseje o času in nesmrtnosti, kratke zgodbe o dvojniku in nespečnosti iz Peščene knjige ter pesmi iz Šifre. V njih analizira ključne značilnosti Borgesovega sloga – naključna ujemanja in odstopanja – in jih primerja s tistimi, ki jih Adorno predlaga za umetniško ustvarjanje v poznih letih.
