Marquez G. One Hundred Years of Solitude

One Hundred Years of Solitude established Gabriel García Márquez’s international reputation – and established it so thoroughly that even had he not subsequently written his other masterpieces, García Márquez would still hold a large and predominant place in twentieth-century literature. The mysterious history of the Buendía family of the village of Macondo, which does nothing less than recapitulate the entire history of the human race, has had an influence on world literature unsurpassed by that of any other book of our era. In its lush understanding of the ways in which the political, the personal and the spiritual realms twine and untwine, in its couplings and parturitions, its battles and truces, One Hundred Years of Solitude contains a world we could never have imagined on our own. Yet, once encountered, it seems as familiar as the world of our own childhoods. García Márquez brought to literature not just a new style and method but a new consciousness, a new way of seeing and coming to terms with the life around us. Gabriel García Márquez was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1982.
