Routinely described as one of the greatest novels ever written, Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s One Hundred Years of Solitude is a dazzlingly inventive work. Telling the multigenerational story of the Buendia family, it helped establish the influential Magic Realism genre as well as the Latin American literary Boom. This course will consider Marquez’s work from multiple perspectives, including its complex political commentaries and groundbreaking fictional experiments, to give an intimate portrait of one of the twentieth century’s most significant works.
