Quite a few issues, cleanup and citations tag were on the page before I got there. Most obvious ones are lacking inline citations and extremely short lead. Claims that i think need citation include "Paramount among his intellectual interests are elements of mythology, mathematics, theology, and, as a personal integration of these, Borges' sense of literature as recreation — all of these disciplines are sometimes treated as a writer's playthings and at other times treated very seriously" or "Borges' work maintained a universal perspective that reflected a multi-ethnic Argentina, exposure from an early age to his father's substantial collection of world literature, and lifelong travel experience." I'm sure a lot of these things are true or have truth in them but since the article was promoted 3 years ago, criteria have changed to include the need for more inline citations. I've started tidying, adding images and citations but think we should delist until we've added more inline citations. I've notified the main editor User:Jmabel, who's not averse to reviewing article and says that if there is something that no one readily sees how to cite for and that they can be of help, then let them know.

BTW, I'm a "him", not a "them". I don't intend to spend a ton of time on re-research, but if after someone has put in reasonable effort there is anything substantive likely to be lost for lack of citation, let me know. I'm pretty solid on Borges's writing (have certainly read the majority of anything he ever wrote), moderately solid on his biography, have at least an entire bookshelf of works by or about him to consult. - Jmabel | Talk 18:50, 3 December 2008 (UTC)
