Why it was titled The Gospel According to Mark
Author(s): Yan Huang
Abstract: The Gospel according to Mark is a short story written by Argentina writer Jorge Luis Borges. This short story mainly talks about how the protagonist was crucified. However only until the middle of the story, the concern on the gospel finally appeared. From the story, it seems there is no much relation between the content and the title. Then why did the author take The Gospel according to Mark as the title of his story? This paper will try to figure out the reasons.
