"Lo dicho y el tiempo" is a collection of three essays, each related to a text by Borges. The first essay studies diachronic translation and its cultural value in "The Translators of the 1001 Nights"; the second studies translation understood as an interpretation of the fictional world in "Pierre Menard, author of Quixote"; and the third studies translation as a biased interpretation of reality in "The report of Brodie. " These three perspectives revolve around the same fundamental theme: access, formalization, and communication of knowledge.
