    This Craft of Verse Epub á This Craft Epub / this download, craft download, verse kindle, This Craft book, This Craft of Verse PDF/EPUBWhat an honor and a privilege to be given access to the mind of one of the most original thinkers in the history of literature In the 1967 1968 Charles Eliot Norton Lectures delivered at Harvard University Borges spoke extemporaneously and without notes he was blind by this time about his life in literature and the craft of poetry I read this slim volume published in 2000 containing his six lectures and the afterword by the editor Cătlin Andrei Mihăilescu and closed it to find my eyes filled with tears They were the tears of loss that such a brilliant mind has gone out of the world but also tears of gratitude that one such as he had come to be and that he has shared with us his love of reading and his insight into the magical world of words From our father Homer through Vergil through Borges the chain continues and I have at hand the latest volume of Alberto Mang
