For D.V. Rodriguez

Mr Rodriguez has written to me to ask for a checklist of my book-length Borges translations. I hope the following will be of help.

 

The Book of Imaginary Beings  (1969)

            The Aleph and Other Stories 1933-1969  (1970)

            Doctor Brodie’s Report  (1972)

            Selected Poems 1923-1967  (1972)

            A Universal History of Infamy  (1972)

            Borges on Writing  (1973)

            In Praise of Darkness  (1974)

            The Congress   (1974)

            Chronicles of Bustos Domecq  (1976)

            The Book of Sand  (1977)

            Six Problems for don Isidro Parodi  (1981)

            Evaristo Carriego (1984)

 

The volume Borges on Writing is not a translation but a record of three seminars delivered at Columbia University in 1971.

        A few years ago I posted on my old website a number of fugitive pieces – forewords, commentaries, etc. – that Borges and I had written together in English and which neither the Borges Estate nor his publishers wished to make use of. When the Wylie Agency learned of my postings, without notifying me, they closed down my site. For some time they, and Viking-Penguin, were and had been bullying and threatening about any proposal of mine to reprint the work I had created in collaboration with Borges and for which I owned half the copyright. So cocksure and assiduous were Wylie & Co. in their campaign to stamp my efforts into oblivion that they even supressed conversations I had translated between Osvaldo Ferrari and Borges. The rights to these belonged exclusively to Ferrari and, at the time, the translation rights to me. These conversations were never part of the Borges Estate controlled by María Kodama. In fact, she had years before taken Ferrari to court over the matter and lost in an expensive lawsuit.

       All this is by way of apologizing to Mr Rodriguez and others for not having got around to posting any of my introductions to my Millennium Borges project. Instead, for the time being, I have been happily engaged in a series of writing projects of my own.

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That's right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

Zune and iPod: Most people coarmpe the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It's very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker. http://eldfrxm.com [url=http://ibyvlfhtx.com]ibyvlfhtx[/url] [link=http://vgrwhubz.com]vgrwhubz[/link]

There are definitely quite a lot of deialts like that to take into consideration. That is a nice level to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as basic inspiration however clearly there are questions just like the one you carry up where a very powerful thing can be working in trustworthy good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged round issues like that, however I am positive that your job is clearly recognized as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.

This is getting a bit more suevjctibe, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like Mixview' that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you're listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of neighbors will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune Social is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

Have you read "Bringing Home Birkin" ? It's AMAZING how many birkins this guy was able to get his hands on. He ran quite the lurcitave business!As for me, the frugalista in me just can't justify spending that much when you could probably buy a decent car for the same price :( Maybe if I ever win the lottery...

D.V. Rodriguez said ...

Dear Mr. di Giovanni,

This is exactly the type of list I've been searching for; my college library has quite a few of your editions and as a start I'm looking for a copy of the Aleph and Other Stories for that autobiographical essay (and your fine translations, of course) to aid my personal studies.

I actually found two of your story translations online by google searching your name and Borges, and there is an experimental site designed around your translation of the Book of Sand you might find interesting.

Have you thought of releasing any of the unpublished pieces through Creative Commons? I understand the pressure of multiple corporate entities might be heavy, but seeing as the translation rights are yours, it seems like you at least have the right to share the Ferrari/Borges interview at this point!

If possible, I'd love to ask you more questions on your work as a translator and writer; since communication through blog posts and comments might prove too unruly, feel free to send a response to my email address:

dvrodriguez@zoho.com

Best of luck on your projects,
D.V. Rodriguez

Hello, my name is Javier, from Barcelona. I am an avid Borges reader, in Spanish, of course, but I just started reading Laberinths in English a few days ago, and is really impressive. Borges is by far my fav author.
I always thought it's a bit sad this Maria Copyright Kodama affair, the legcy of a genius in the hands of a groupie,Lol.

Anyway, keep on the good work, everybody says you are the best translator of Borges in English, take care and good luck.

Mr L.W. Stones said ...

Dear Sir, I recently came into the possession of a copy of 'In Memory of Borges', a book which, as you obviously know, was edited and introduced by yourself. It's in mint condition and seemingly has never been read. The interesting aspect is this: on the title page someone has crossed out "Norman Thomas diGiovanni" and handwritten "Montgomery of Alamein" (the chap who penned the book's foreword), and then written "For the one and only joy, with love, Norman" -- would you by any chance recall if this was written by yourself? The date has also been recorded as "14th June1988", which is obviously the anniversary of Senor Borges' death. I believe "London/ 14 June 1988" is written, but I cannot be sure it says "London". Sorry to bother you with something that might seem very trifling, it has just intrigued me ever since I read it.
