Abstract
Gabriel Garcia Marquez was born in 1928 Aracataca, Colombia. In the 1950’s he worked as journalist, travelling widely in Europe and America before publishing the work which made his name, One Hundred Years of Solitude. In 1982 he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. The novel reflects the heat and colour of the Spanish Caribbean, the mythological world of its inhabitants, the exotic mentality of its leaders. According to the Glossary of literary terms by M.H .Abram’s, “The term magical realism, originally applied in the 1920’s to a school of surrealist German painters, was later used to describe the prose fiction of Jorge Lwis Borges in Argentina, as well as the work of writers in such as Gabriel Garcia Marquez in Columbia, Isabell Allende in Chile, Gunter Grass in Germany, Italo Calvino in Italy and John Fowles and Salman Rushdie in England. These writers, weave in an ever shifting pattern, a sharply etched realism in representing ordinary events and details together with fantastic and dream like elements, as well as with materials derived from myth and fairy tales”.(Abrams:156).
