Paul Auster, “Invisible” (2009)

paul-auster-invisible-2009

Begins with a reference to Bertran de Born. One of the protagonists has the last name Born, and Bertran comes up a few times: both as Dante depicted him and as the poet himself. The narrator also translates one of Bertran’s poems from Occitan into English (Auster includes the whole poem).
