One Hundred Years of Solitude
The novel about a magical village that honored Ulysses and conquered the world
Gabriel García Márquez’s novel One Hundred Years of Solitude seemed destined for obscurity upon its publication in 1967. The little-known author, small publisher, unusual style, and setting in a remote, magical village in the Caribbean were hardly the usual ingredients for success in the literary marketplace. Yet the novel was an instant and surprising success. This talk will reveal new details about the making of this novel, including its many connections to Joyce’s Ulysses, and its transformation into one of the best-selling literary books of all time.
