Critical Insights: Gabriel García Márquez

Gabriel García Márquez, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1982, "is credited for almost single-handedly reinventing Latin America." García Márquez, a trained journalist, made his indelible mark on literature with the 1967 publication of One Hundred Years of Solitude which heralded what was later dubbed "El Boom," the Latin American literary movement that came to define Latin American literature.

This volume collects varying perspectives on García Márquez, his work and its lasting importance. Examining both his full-length and shorter works, topics include the evolution of the concept of Magical Realism, the literary influences that impacted Márquez's work, and an analysis of central characters and concepts in his novels.
