Hoy, honramos con orgullo el legado de Jorge Luis Borges, un mago inequívoco de la literatura del siglo 20 cuya radiante creatividad continúa guiando e inspirando.
Hasta el día de hoy, la obra de Jorge Luis Borges resuena a lo largo de los años. La insaciable curiosidad de Jorge fue magistralmente canalizada para construir puentes culturales que sirven como fuentes vitales de inspiración, particularmente en el mundo de hoy, conectado globalmente.
Nacido el 24 de agosto de 1899, en el corazón de Buenos Aires, Argentina, conmemoramos lo que habría sido su 124º cumpleaños con un video que captura un reflejo de su trayectoria y conexiones con Irlanda.
Borges ocupa un lugar especial en el corazón de WONDR. Sus exploraciones nos inspiraron profundamente, notablemente su historia ‘UNDR,’ que dio origen a nuestro propio nombre. Su capacidad para fusionar culturas y conceptos refleja nuestra búsqueda de creatividad sin límites.
“Siempre he imaginado que el Paraíso será una especie de biblioteca.”Jorge Luis Borges Escritor, Ensayista, Poeta y Traductor
La conexión de Borges con Irlanda era profunda. Se sumergió en la literatura irlandesa, traduciendo obras clave y fomentando una conexión entre Argentina e Irlanda. Su participación en la celebración inaugural del Bloomsday en 1982 marcó un momento significativo.
A la buena edad de 82 años, finalmente pisó Dublín, como se recordó en una entrevista con Seamus Heaney y Richard Kearney. Aunque en esta etapa ya estaba ciego, todavía se sentía obligado a representar sus ausentes contornos visuales en su mente, avanzando a tientas por sus calles con su bastón explorador, como el hombre ciego del episodio de las “Sirenas”

Today, we proudly honour the legacy of Jorge Luis Borges, an unequivocal magician of 20th-century literature whose radiant creativity continues to guide and inspire.
To this day, the work of Jorge Luis Borges reverberates through the ages. Jorge’s insatiable curiosity was masterfully harnessed to construct cultural bridges that stand as vital sources of inspiration, particularly in today’s globally connected world.
Born on August 24, 1899, in the heart of Buenos Aires, Argentina, we commemorate what would have been his 124th birthday with a video that captures a reflection of his journey and his connections with Ireland.
Borges holds a special place in the heart of WONDR. His explorations inspired us deeply, notably his story ‘UNDR,’ which gave rise to our very name. His ability to fuse cultures and concepts mirrors our quest for unbounded creativity.
"I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library."Jorge Luis Borges Writer, essayist, poet & translator
Borges’ connection with Ireland ran deep. He immersed himself in Irish literature, translating key works and fostering a connection between Argentina and Ireland. His participation in the inaugural Bloomsday celebration in 1982 marked a significant moment.
At the good old age of 82, he finally stepped foot in Dublin as recalled in an interview with Seamus Heaney & Richard Kearney. Even though by this stage he was blind, he was still compelled to represent its absent visual contours in his mind, tip-tapping his way through its streets with his probing stick, like the blind man of the ‘Sirens’ episode.
