This is a short story that explores themes related to revenge, deception, justice, etc. Borges plays with the ambiguity of reality. The story could be said to fall under Booker’s plot of Overcoming the Monster perhaps delving into Tragedy.

The adaptation aims to combine concrete sounds based on reality, and explore ways of synthesising the words, text, emotions and meaning into sound.
