Jorge Luis Borges

The Library of Babel is a fictional library that Borges constructed to explore the consequences of a library containing all books.The library refers to the world, but it's not a physical location; rather, it's "the whole universe" in which every book must exist.Borges wrote this story in 1941 while living in Geneva, Switzerland. He had been working as an editorial assistant on journals and other publications for a few years when he began writing this story.
