Credits: 4

This course studies the narrative of Gabriel García Márquez (1927-2014). Winner of the 1982 Nobel Prize, he was arguably the most influential writer in the last third of the twentieth century. Among his myriad of unofficial disciples and followers, one can find such contemporary luminaries as Toni Morrison, Salman Rushdie, Peter Carey, and Ben Okri. In addition to One Hundred Years of Solitude (1967), the novel that popularized magical realism throughout the world, we will study his innovative crime story Chronicle of a Death Foretold (1982), the monumental romance Love in the Time of Cholera (1985), and his historical recreation of the life of the libertador Simón Bolívar, The General in his Labyrinth (1992), among other texts.
