Colombian writer Gabriel Garcia Marquez, the Nobel Prize-winning magic realist behind the beloved novels One Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera, has died at the age of 87, according to sources close to the family.
The beloved Spanish-language writer died at home in Mexico City around midday, sources told The Associated Press, confirming Mexican newspaper reports Thursday afternoon. The individuals spoke on condition of anonymity out of respect for the family’s privacy.
One Hundred Years of Solitude
Gabriel García Márquez
Themes, Motifs & Symbols
The Power of Reading and of Language
Although language is in an unripe, Garden-of-Eden state at the beginning of One Hundred Years of Solitude, when most things in the newborn world are still unnamed, its function quickly becomes more complex. Various languages fill the novel, including the Guajiro language that the children learn, the multilingual tattoos that cover José Arcadio’s body, the Latin spoken by José Arcadio Buendía, and the final Sanskrit translation of Melquíades’s prophecies. In fact, this final act of translation can be seen as the most significant act in the book, since it seems to be the one that makes the book’s existence possible and gives life to the characters and story within.
As García Márquez makes reading the final apocalyptic force that destroys Macondo and calls attention to his own task as a writer, he also reminds us that our reading provides the fundamental first breath to every action that takes place in One Hundred Years of Solitude. While the novel can be thought of as something with one clear, predetermined meaning, García Márquez asks his reader to acknowledge the fact that every act of reading is also an interpretation, and that such interpretations can have weighty consequences. Aureliano (II), then, does not just take the manuscripts’ meanings for granted, but, in addition, he must also translate and interpret them and ultimately precipitate the destruction of the town.
…quite a literary adventure “tale/novel” which I read and had to study in High School Literature Classes…!
I do not agree on all that is written to have a true reality application to anybody’s life, there many similitude’s, with the Bible story, and the Final Destruction of Earth in the Book of Apocalypse though not merely of a town like Macondo…!
What is startling though not as gruesome as some Bible stories, are the incest “chastisement” births with PIG’s Tails…!
It is sadly true, you do get isolated, if you embark on a study of reality, thought and logic, that is not in accord to the Religion of your Human Civilization Century…! ! ! But because you do it in my particular case, but because the “society/people” around you do it…!
THOUGH Gabriel Garcia Marquez is in Literary categorized in this Novel: as being mostly IMAGINARY-Realism – MAGIC, for me it is crudely also a “SATIRE” of “QUASI – Innocence” and ways humans live, and sex lives can be…!
And never forget that CAPERNAUM, the Town of LAZARUS, MARTHA and MARY, also was never rebuilt after the Roman Empire demise and first destruction of JERUSALEM…!
CAPERNAUM is a clear MACONDO…! A surreal town with SURREAL bubble story occurring in front of all…!
CBC is not gone yet, MACONDO is long gone, and Gabriel Garcia Marquez has departed this known World, and won’t be forgotten until his books disappear, and all memory of him is forgotten and lost…!
But WHILE ANYTHING ABOUT GARCIA MARQUEZ, IS ON ANY EXTERNAL FORM OF DRAWING OR DATA RETRIEVAL ITEM, OR BOOK, and in people’s memories, HE EXISTS IN THIS REALM OF information and data, THAT NO EVOLUTION COULD POSSIBLY PRODUCE BY MERE CHANCE…!
But EVOLUTION claims in their “minds and their logic”, if it happened and is as is, it had to be by “MOTHER NATURE”and Evolution…! Amazingly bizarre…!
