Winner of the 1982 Nobel Prize, Gabriel García Márquez (1927-2014) was arguably the most influential writer in the last third of the twentieth century. Among his myriad of unofficial disciples and admirers, one can find such contemporary luminaries as Toni Morrison, Salman Rushdie, Mo Yan, and Maryse Condé. In this course, in addition to One Hundred Years of Solitude (1967), we will study earlier novels, such as Leaf Storm (1955), No One Writes to the Colonel (1961), and In Evil Hour (1962), as well as selected stories and non-fiction. Other texts that may be read include Autumn of the Patriarch (1975), Chronicle of a Death Foretold (1981) and The General in his Labyrinth (1989). This course fulfills the Single-Author requirement in Literary Studies.
