As most Argentinian icons - Evita Perón, El Che, Perón himself, Gardel, Maradona, etc., Borges is also a controversial icon. Today, 25 years have passed since he died. Admired and loved by some people in Argentina and not so much by others, there is no question that international renown Borges was the greatest Argentinian writer in history.
“Si pudiéramos comprender una sola flor sabríamos quiénes somos y qué es el mundo”
"If we could understand one single flower, we would know who we are and what the world is"
- Jorge Luis Borges
