I thought this reading was kind of confusing. I understood that it was talking about another society, in some country that no one has heard about. I wasn't sure if Borges was talking about another society in a different world though. This was definitely a short story, not a bunch of excerpts put together like Et Cetera. I also noticed something that I have seen in most of the stories so far. I saw that they all had the word abominable incorporated in the story somehow. I was just wondering if this was a coincidence or if it was intentional.
