Critical Analysis of the Garden of Forking Paths by Jorge Luis Borges Jorge Luis Borges is a celebrated author of Latin American fiction. He is known for the style of presenting his works through the literary unity of magic realism. Through his works he is fascinated by incoherent magical glances at the time, the many realities that exist in the labyrinths and he is capable of writing comments on imaginary books that do not exist.In Forklingen's garden, the protagonist is a spy and the story is written on the background of World War 1. His task is to send a secret message to his German counterparts. He is being persecuted by Madden. He travels by train to the famous sinologist Stephen Albert. There, the discussion discusses an unfinished book written by the main character's father. There are several plots in the book. For example: in a situation a man is a friend and in another an enemy and then rivals meet and shoot each other and then flee. The surprising part of the story is that the protagonist shoots Albert and is arrested by Madden. Borges ultimately reveals that he can deliver secret of the bombing of a certain city of the Germans.The story of the story is a straight forward, going from beginning to end. The story follows the traditional stories. The plot is not a very convincing one and reveals the struggle of the literary author to create it.The main character who is a spy rather than being true to his tradition is portrait as a person who is interested in literature. He constantly contemplates and disjointed the manuscript of his ancestor, a created maze. The writer's interest in mazes is a paradoxical fictional ambiguity. Is there a "trace" of meaning when skipping or delving into the semantic sentence structure. One comes to the character's emptiness and what alone rest is a literary decoration. The authors' letter is more like a comment than a fiction work.The importance of time is thought fictional. Borges belongs to several guesses of time. First of all, there is time in the book that is linear. Then there are many time zones of fiction where time is made for an antique comic gesture of literary playfulness. For Borges, the time that Zeno's arrow, although moving, is stagnant at each path. Yes, Borges has given us the literary aspect of time, the internalized who revolves around the ontology to be a human one of the experiences. Borges time is similar to that of the surrealist painter Dali's melting clocks.Although not many troops are created, Borges goes to the extent that suggests the metaphor. The whole story revolves around a metaphor's symbolism. People, birds, sunrise, mazes and even time become metaphorical intrusions in the author's creativity. The story becomes an imaginary encyclopedia where fictitious space is imaginary and rests on an excessive hyperbolic of the real.
