Borges and the Kabbalah
  -    -  Borges and the Kabbalah

The magical realism of Borges has a common ground with the thought of Kabbalah.

If, according to Borges, the text and its infinite combinations approach the author to a demiurge, for the Kabbalah, the accurate analysis of a particular book – the Bible – potentially holds the key to the creation of the world.
