>You Anglos will never have a Don Quixote.

>You Anglos will never have a Don Quixote. No other language can ever have a Don Quixote. It's impossible, you do not have the language to write a Don Quixote. In the best of cases you can have an intelligent translator to make you see from afar what Don Quixote really is. Either you know Spanish, or you can't taste that. That is only tasted in Spanish, in native Spanish.

        Lope de Vega is not poetically like Shakespeare at all, only dramatically, and even then Shakespeare is still a little bit superior.

            It's good to feel innate pride in your native country's literature but comparing literatures like sports teams is pointless and unproductive, not at all what professors and literary critics should be doing. "Frick translations" is the only positive takeaway from this, and I agree with that

            He's being cheeky. He likes Shakespeare, Homer, and everything. He hates New Criticism, though. That'd be Barthes and co.

      This. Spain is barely relevant to Western Culture as a whole, and almost all of that relevance comes from the couple centuries of the columbian exchange and then the religious wars.

      Latin America produced enough good authors to justify learning it. No, I wouldn't pick it over French or German for purpose of reading literature, but I could understand why someone would go that route.

    >Borges: I have done most of my reading in English. I find English a far finer language than Spanish.

    >William F Buckley: Why?

    >Borges: Well, many reasons. Firstly, English is both a Germanic and a Latin language. Those two registers—for any idea you take, you have two words. Those words will not mean exactly the same. For example if I say “regal” that is not exactly the same thing as saying “kingly.” Or if I say “fraternal” that is not the same as saying “brotherly.” Or “dark” and “obscure.” Those words are different. It would make all the difference—speaking for example—the Holy Spirit, it would make all the difference in the world in a poem if I wrote about the Holy Spirit or I wrote the Holy Ghost, since “ghost” is a fine, dark Saxon word, but “spirit” is a light Latin word. Then there is another reason. The reason is that I think that, of all languages, English is the most physical of all languages.

      >WFB: The most what?

      Borges: Physical. You can, for example, say “He loomed over.” You can’t very well say that in Spanish.

      WFB: “Asomó?”*

      Borges: Well, no, no, they’re not exactly the same. And then you have, in English, you can do almost anything with verbs and prepositions. For example, to “laugh off,” to “dream away.” Those things can’t be said in Spanish. To “live down” something, to “live up to” something—you can’t say those things in Spanish. They can’t be said. Or really in any Romance language.

        >Borges: Of course, in Spanish words are far too cumbersome, they’re far too long. Well, I go to one of my hobbies: For example, if you take an English adverb, or two English adverbs, you say for instance “quickly,” “slowly,” the stress falls on the significant part of the word. Quick-ly. Slow-ly. But if you say it in Spanish, you say “lentamente,” “rapidamente,” then the stress falls, let’s say, on the non-significant part, on the gadget.

      >BORGES: They say that lately, T.S. Eliot, to show himself as more English than the English has stated that Shakespeare was superior to Dante.
      >SILVINA (Bioy's wife): Don't you think that?
      >BORGES: I don't think anyone is superior to Dante. Shakespeare seems to me a little irresponsible to put him that high. I don't think of him as capable of building something like The Divine Comedy. He had eloquence, congratulations, that's also present in Dante.
      >SILVINA: And the sonnets? Even if you don't like them they're very cute.
      >BORGES: Dante's are also not bad. Shakespeare's have a very weird theme...
      >SILVINA: What does it matter? Is it impossible to write a great work with a weird theme?
      >BORGES: I don't know. The theme is so weird --asking a beautiful friend to marry and have children to whom he'd transmit his beauty-- that must be true, who would invent that? An argument against Shakespeare is that one does not always want to read him and that there's pieces we don't know.
      >BIOY: Do you put The Divine Comedy above all?
      >BORGES: As far as literature is concerned, it's only inferior to the Gospels. Homer might be a great writer, but it's incomparable to Dante and the authors of the Gospels. Is there a truly epic moment in The Illiad? I don't think so.
