Starting and ending with Jorge Luis Borges’ speculations, this essay explores the moral and imaginative significance of the cultural space that is the library in the English eighteenth century, especially as it touched the intellectual lives of Thomas Warton, Professor of Poetry and Fellow of Trinity College, Oxford, Frederick Augusta Barnard, George III’s librarian, and Samuel Johnson.
