GG Marquez & Total Novel

Gabriel García Márquez: one short story, two novellas, and The Total Novel: Cien años de soledad

We'll read, analyze, evaluate, and appreciate "La prodigiosa tarde de Baltasar", El coronel no tiene quien le escriba, Crónica de una muerte anunciada, and Cien años de soledad. The latter will be analyzed intrinsically and placed in the context of García Márquez's complete works; in the context of the "Boom" (Carlos Fuentes, Mario Vargas Llosa, et al); as well as in the context of the emergence of Colombia's Caribbean literature.
