Rebecca Porinsky’s analysis of Emma Zunz. 

“It is the story of a young woman avenging the wrongs done to her father which may have led to his suicide. In “Emma Zunz” Borges toys with the ideas of justice and revenge, and of right and wrong.”

“In the story, Borges plays with the ideas of justice and revenge and their difference (or is there any?) He also toys with the reader, leading them to take the side of the criminal, who is Emma herself.”
