During a recent trip to Argentina I was talking to an old friend, a successful psychiatrist, about Jorge Luis Borges, the famous Argentinean writer considered by many as one of the greatest writers of the 20th century.Mario Rojman, another friend I met in Buenos Aires, told me that Borges visited Peru when he was an attache at the Argentinean embassy. Because Rojman loves poetry, both he and Borges would recite some of the writer's poems aloud, each one a line at a time. I had the honor of meeting Borges personally.At the time, she was also taking language and literature courses at the Instituto de Lenguas Vivas in Buenos Aires.One of her professors was an American named Donald A. Yates, a professor emeritus of Spanish-American literature at Michigan State University. Cesar Chelala, a New York writer, is a winner of an Overseas Press Club of America award and two awards from ADEPA, the organization of Argentine newspapers.
