    Very well then I contradict myself,
    (I am large, I contain multitudes.)"

    also if you look at borges favorite writers, apart from whitman, they're all probable infjs. the catholic infjs on the writer list, etc.
    Magic realism most likely comes from Faulkner. Whitman has been dismissed as unimportant in latinamerica for decades. Borges' work was essentially different from that of Whitman and the latinamerican boom generation.

    It was enough that he was not you and utterly foreign,
    related to no one. So easy to love.

    explain. borges also mentions faulkner, tho he hates hemingway. who read faulkner and why did he inspire magical realism?

    magical realism in latin america is borges, rolfo, and garcia marquez?

    [quote=hokie912;973751]Wow, nebbykoo, I was just about to suggest both Cormac McCarthy and Milan Kundera!

    I wish I could find my copy of Kundera's Slowness, which is so Ni it hurts, but the only novel I have on hand is The Farewell Party.
    And this is a passage from McCarthy's novel The Road, which is one of my favorite books.quote]

    Thanks for posting those examples. Kundera has such an incredible mind for uncovering the psychological truth in his characters...
