    For school I have read two short stories from Jorge Luis Borges' Ficciones. Im having trouble analyzing "The Library of Babel" and "The Babylon Lottery." I can only find one or two themes, but there has to be more, and it is quite frustrating :woo:

    I would concentrate on the library motif itself in The Library of Babel; its connotations, implications and role within the narrative structure, and the potential that your interpretation might not be the same in another language - contextualise this against the Tower of Babel, where "the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech" (Genesis 11:1).

    I want you to think rather than have a definitive answer given to you.

    I have not read the latter unfortunately.

    I am relating to the Tower Of Babel. After doing that, I started realizing some of his themes, such as infinity etc.. but could I PM how Im relating the two? Im not sure if I demonstrate the link fully.
