The plot

In Borges’ short story “The Plot” the gaucho is set upon by other gauchos among whom he recognizes his own godson .

“Pero Ische ?” says he . Like  “Et Tu ,Brutus? “said by Caesar when he recognizes Brutus among his assassins.

He does not know he  has died so that the scene could be played again .

The plot is complex and never-ending and encompasses all times and all spaces. The irony  here is not inherent in the scheme of things but is only  read by history.
