The short story, Borges and I, by Jorge Luis Borges, discusses identity and the self. Borges is trying to prove that language cannot successfully define anything and therefore, he is saying that the Borges who writes and the other Borges are not the same person. They are separate and different people. He does not able to identify with what the writer Borges writes because he believes that the writer Borges is a different person. Borges is showing that once you try to define something with language, the true meaning of the person is lost because language can never be accurate and real.
