From the cover: “Jorge Luis Borges was born in 1899 in Buenos Aires. Educated in Europe, he returned to Argentina in 1921, where he was one of the pioneers of the ‘ultraist’ movement, a sect of Spanish imagists. A Universal History of Infamy is a collection of stories about some of the world’s more or less notable villains. The characters Borges has chosen to portray represent no great tradition of infamy, nor are their activities the most bloodthirsty or the most brilliant.”
