In The Book of Sand by Jorge Luis Borges, there is a short story about an apocalyptic future in which one of the characters reaches a Holocaust like end with a title: Utopia of a Man That is Tired. This story tells of a bland existence where books are not printed anymore, and in which the character reaches an abrupt end reminiscent of persecutions in World War II.
The future character lives in a warped world with poor government where people are allowed to die when they want to. The character farms his own land and lives for centuries, and Utopia is defined as a place that does not exist from Quevedo.
Finally, at the end the character appears to die giving the story a chilling eerie feeling, as he seems to be executed.
Borges creates a feeling of eerie despair and bizarre loneliness that creeps from a not so ideal world where everything is drab.
