Gabriel García Márquez Ó 1 SUMMARY

E volumes Eyes of a Blue Dog Big Mama's Funeral and The Incredible and Sad Tale of lnnocent Eréndira and Her Heartless Grandmother Combining mysticism history and humor the stori. You have to stay with this collection for awhile before it starts to grow on you for it is compiled in chronological order and throws the spotlight on the evolution of this writer and his craft as he matures towards winning the Nobel Prize for LiteratureThe 26 story collection is comprised of selections from three volumes of short stories that were published in the 1960 s and 70 s The stories in the first volume Eyes of Blue Dog are the hardest to read as they are interior monologues and reminiscences with very little action or movement the protagonists often pre occupied with death The characters feel and sense their world viscerally and the titles bear little resemblance to the content of the pieces and yet given that the author was in his twenties when these stories were written it foreshadows the literary maturity that was to develop later We see some dialogue and movement appear in the later stories in this volume There is a tendency to repeat lines like The curlews pecked out our eyes or A horse kicked me in the head to emphasise the direness of the characters situations And when the Negro who sang in the park comes to take our protagonist away to sing in the choir we realize that the latter is dying when the torrential rains run for days floods the town and addles the mind we are shown this by the townspeople seeing and smelling bodies from the graveyard floating in the streets great imageryThe second volume Big Mama s Funeral is set in Macondo Garcia Maruez s fictional hometown and the one he immortalized in his novel One Hundred Years of Solitude The corrupt mayor the rich industrialist the thief and other characters like the Buendia family flit in and out of the stories playing different roles The writer s irony begins to appear in these stories the widow of the rich man who believes her dead spouse was noble when he was a mass murderer the artist who gets beaten up for exposing the rich man s corrupt soul the blind grandmother who sees everything in her granddaughter s life The author even has his take on the Wandering Jew story a metaphor used throughout literature The final story from which this volume gets its title is a grand metaphor to the death of the old way of life and the birth of the new one the rule of the landed gentry giving way to democracy It is also a story in which Garcia Maruez s fiction in this collection transcends the micro view to take on the macro oneThe third volume The Incredible and Sad Tale of Innocent Erendira and Her Heartless Grandmother seems pre occupied with taking the author s vision down to the level of children Two of the tales are subtitled A Tale for Children and speak of strange people and ships that appear from out of the sea to teach us lessons Yet other pre occupations not necessarily juvenile in content emerge the dying and corrupt senator who sacrifices his reputation to feast on the body of a young girl a theme that Garcia Maruez fully developed in his final novel Memories of My Melancholy Whores the balance of good and evil both needing each other to survive The final story from which the volume gets it s name is the longest in the entire collection and its title says it all poor Erendira the 14 year old virgin is exploited to the fullest by her wicked grandmother and is indentured to the old whore for life Despite the exaggerated situations that are typical of magic realism some interesting truths emerge smugglers do not interfere with the Church wrong enemy to take on those who are abused and manipulated will abuse and manipulate when one is focused on escape one often leaves loved ones behind The imagery is also magical the wind is always howling outside Erendira s tent as she travels the desert country selling her body the wind of her misfortune we think the grandmother s blood is green with envy of her granddaughter s youth and promise we wonder glass changes colour when the love struck Ulises Erendira s lover touches it testament to seeing things with rose tinted glasses perhaps Although the geography we travel through in this collection is around coastal Colombia our travels through human experience is far wide and deep This is a great collection to understand the evolution of a writer from his narrow beginnings to the expansive weave and heft he achieved in his later writing

    December 2009Some possibilities1 I may have gone in over my head with this one Gabriel García Máruez is uite the writer and I probably lack the fortitude to deal with his imaginative genius Magical realism may not be my thing and my expectations on reading from this were unrealistic having read and loved A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings a few years ago my mistake was to assume the entire three collections in one volu

    So first of all I have been reading this off and on for about three years now and I finally decided about two weeks ago to give it a serious effort from the beginning This is than just an interesting collection of stories; it's a document of Maruez's growth as a writer The first third of the book is frankly pretty terrible It's filled with failed experiments in which Maruez grows closer to developing his signature magical realism but thes
