Abstract

Starting from David Foster Wallace's review to Edwin Williamson's Borges a Life and Williamson's heated response, this article reconfigures North-American postmodernists' writers' fascination with Jorge Luis Borges. Borges thus becomes the writerly canvas against which Wallace and Barth conceived their own writing as postmodernist (or post-post modernists in the former's case). Two different Borges eventually emerge as the result of the projective attempts of the two American authors.
