Description

Not only is "One Hundred Years of Solitude" regularly taught across disciplines in colleges and universities, it is also one of the few Latin American classics that has become recognizable to a more general public beyond academia. This collection includes ten articles by different authors that offer in-depth readings of the novel. Among the topics examined are myth, magic, women, Western Imperialism, and the Media. The book also includes an English translation of an early eight-page appreciation by Carlos Fuentes, as well as a 1982 interview with the author. This book should provide a valuable tool for scholars, teachers, and students, as well as general readers in search of a guide to this complex literary masterpiece.show more
