Sharing a Dream: The Lucid Dreamscapes of Jorge Luis Borges and Can Xue

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract

Abstract

In particular, I look at how traces of Zhuangzi’s butterfly dream appear in the oneiric fictions of Argentinian writer Jorge Luis Borges, and how, in turn, Borges’ dream-worlds have inspired Chinese author Can Xue to create a new kind of literary dreamscape.
