By Miguel Capistrán

México prácticamente se le atravesó a Jorge Luis Borges: los angeles Biblioteca Nacional, que dirigió tantos años, estaba ubicada en l. a. calle bonaerense que lleva el nombre de nuestro país. En su infancia se halló con La conquista de México de William Prescott, que fue una de sus primeras lecturas. Ya de joven admiró al poeta mexicano Ramón López Velarde y, poco tiempo después, apareció en su vida Alfonso Reyes, a quien conoció en Argentina y siempre reconoció como uno de sus maestros. En este volumen Miguel Capistrán ha compilado por primera vez una valiosa antología de cuentos, poemas y ensayos del escritor argentino donde México es el protagonista o se asoma de manera circunstancial y enigmática. Borges y México también reúne los textos de una veintena de escritores que evocan e invocan sus encuentros con los angeles figura literaria y humana más common de los escritores hispanoamericanos. Sin duda, el presente libro constituye una prueba fehaciente del fervor de los escritoresy lectores mexicanos por el universo borgeano. En ese sentido, destaca el juicio definitivo de Octavio Paz en su luminoso ensayo "El arquero, l. a. flecha y el blanco": "El punto de vista de Borges es su arma infalible: trastorna todos los puntos de vista tradicionales y nos obliga a ver de otra manera las cosas que vemos o los libros que leemos".

At Stoneleigh Abbey, as with most houses, the housekeeper was responsible for organising the supply of many provisions. An account presented in 1738 listed peas, red and black cherries, turnips, cheese, raspberries, cider, greens, strawberries, beans, carrots, eggs, ducks and asparagus, all of which were probably locally produced. 35 At the same time, a range of durable goods also came from local towns (including chinaware, stationery, chandlery, furniture, drapery, haberdashery and livery) while many basic supplies were sent from London.

They wrote firstly to warn of a delay due to problems in sourcing the right tools and case, their usual suppliers in Sheffield being unable to meet the requirements of this bespoke item. 33 The notion that London craftsmen and dealers could supply better quality goods underpinned many such decisions. In contrast, everyday goods were purchased from a much wider range of places. 34 These helped to lock the country house not only into local production and supply networks, but also into webs of mutual obligation.
