Synopsis

The Cambridge Introduction to Gabriel Garcia Marquez by Gerald (University of Pittsburgh) Martin

The Colombian Nobel Prize winner, Gabriel Garcia Marquez (b. 1927), wrote two of the great novels of the twentieth century, One Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera. As novelist, short story writer and journalist, Garcia Marquez has one of literature's most instantly recognizable styles and since the beginning of his career has explored a consistent set of themes, revolving around the relationship between power and love. His novels exemplify the transition between modernist and post-modernist fiction and have made magical realism one of the most significant and influential phenomena in contemporary writing. Aimed at students of Latin American and comparative literature, this book provides essential information about Garcia Marquez's life and career, his published work in literature and journalism, and his political engagement. It connects the fiction effectively to the writer's own experience and explains his enduring importance in world literature.

Reviews

'Measured against its author's stated aims, The Cambridge Introduction to Gabriel Garcia Marquez succeeds commandingly in situating the universal Colombian author's work in the contexts of family history and world events.'
Bulletin of Spanish Studies
