One Hundred Years of Solitude (Modern Classics)


Book Overview: One Hundred Years of Solitude (Modern Classics)

"One Hundred Years of Solitude is the first piece of literature since the Book of Genesis that should be required reading for the entire human race. . . . Mr. Garcia Marquez has done nothing less than to create in the reader a sense of all that is profound, meaningful, and meaningless in life." --William Kennedy, New York Times Book Review

One of the most influential literary works of our time, One Hundred Years of Solitude remains a dazzling and original achievement by the masterful Gabriel Garcia Marquez, winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature.

One Hundred Years of Solitude tells the story of the rise and fall, birth and death of the mythical town of Macondo through the history of the Buendiá family. Inventive, amusing, magnetic, sad and alive with unforgettable men and women--brimming with truth, compassion, and a lyrical magic that strikes the soul--this novel is a masterpiece in the art of fiction.

Gabriel Garcia Marquez, born on March 6, 1927, in Aracataca, Colombia, was a prominent novelist, screenwriter, and journalist who was critically acclaimed worldwide. Marquez's early life in Colombia highly influenced his literary style, leading him to develop "magical realism," an innovative blend of reality and fantasy. With his diverse skill set and remarkable storytelling techniques, Marquez used his powerful voice to critique societal norms and political issues, holding a pivotal role in the Latin American literary renaissance. Marquez’s most famous work, the globally celebrated "One Hundred Years of Solitude," epitomized his unique "magical realism" style. Published in 1967, this novel, telling the intricate story of the Buendía family over seven generations, won Marquez extensive recognition, selling millions of copies globally. "Love in the Time of Cholera," and "Chronicle of a Death Foretold" are other standouts in his prolific career, each contributing to his reputation as a master storyteller. Marquez's noteworthy contributions to literature won him the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1982, an award highlighting his aptitude for creating engaging narratives intertwined with magic and stunning realism. Gabriel García Márquez continues to be remembered as an influential author whose literary tour de force left an indelible mark on world literature. His death on April 17, 2014, ended a phenomenal career, but his powerful stories continue to captivate readers around the globe.
