He was born in Buenos Aires on August 24 1899 and during his early year he was taught at home by his parents before attending school in Geneva, Switzerland. After returning to Argentina in 1921, Borges began publishing his poems and essays in surrealist literary journals.
Several of his short stories have been turned into feature films, including the 1996 film Death and the Compass. He died in Geneva aged 86 on June 14 1986 having never won the Nobel Prize in Literature to the fury of his supporters.
