Abstract

Explores Borges' oblique yet vital relation to Whitman by examining how his emphasis on Whitman's "experiment largely focused on a composite persona and an active, participating reader" manifests itself in Borges' fiction, especially by way of his modulation of Whiman's trope of the open road in works like "The Garden of Forking Paths."
