HERNAIZ, Sebastián. Borges, rewriter . Around “El escritor argentino y la tradición” and the intrigue of its publication contexts. Estud. filol. [online]. 2019, n.63, pp.81-98. ISSN 0071-1713.

Jorge Luis Borges’ “El escritor argentino y la tradición” has been read as a central text of the author’s aesthetics by literary criticism and even as a literary manifesto by different groups of writers. However, little attention has received a series of textual elements that were varied in the successive editions of the text. Proposing a reading of the operations that Borges practices in “El escritor argentino y la tradición” from these variations, this work relocates and interprets the text in its editorial, cultural and political contexts.

Keywords : Jorge Luis Borges; “The argentine writer and tradition”; rewriting; peronismo; reissues.
