♥ Book Title : The General in His Labyrinth
☯ Full Synopsis : "The General in his Labyrinth is the compelling tale of Simon Bolivar, a hero who has been forgotten and whose power is fading, retracing his steps down the Magdalena River by the Nobel Laureate Gabriel Garcia Marquez, author of One Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera. 'It was the fourth time he had travelled along the Magdalena, and he could not escape the impression that he was retracing the steps of his life' At the age of forty-six General Simon Bolivar, who drove the Spanish from his lands and became the Liberator of South America, takes himself into exile. He makes a final journey down the Magdalene River, revisiting the cities along its shores, reliving the triumphs, passions and betrayals of his youth. Consumed by the memories of what he has done and what he failed to do, Bolívar hopes to see a way out of the labyrinth in which he has lived all his life. . ..

☯ Full Synopsis : "In his younger days, Simón Bolívar swept the Spanish back to Europe, liberating South America with his youthful vitality. But lonely, embittered and sickly at the age of forty-six, his power has dwindled, coups abound and it's time for The Liberator to send himself into the exile of retirement. Wending his way down the Magdalena River towards the Caribbean with his faithful servant, José Palacios, Bolívar's journey is hindered by his own reluctance to let his power go. Despite the assassination attempts, jeering and humiliation he encounters, his fear of fading into the shadows keeps him clinging to the man he used to be . . ."Article| Gabriel García Márquez| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Gabriel García Márquez
☯ Full Synopsis : "Marquez enjoys world-wide popularity and it is not surprising that much has been written about him. But a further reason for the enormous critical literature is that, despite his apparent transparency as a consciously popular writer, his fiction is peculiarly elusive of interpretation. Much good criticism of Marquez came in the wake of One Hundred Years of Solitude and the perception of his fiction has been dominated by that novel. It seemed the implicit goal to which the earlier fiction had been striving. In The General in his Labyrinth it emerges that the Bolivar figure is a reworking of earlier solitaries from throughout Marquez fiction and the fading of myth into history has its full pregnancy in the light of this double reference. By concentrating on the later novels, including The General in his Labyrinth, this study brings out the internal dialogue between the novels so that One Hundred Years of Solitude stands out, like Don Quixote in Cervantes' oeuvre, as atypical yet more deeply representative. Behind the popular impact of its 'magical realism' lies Marquez' abiding meditation on the nature of fictional and historical truth."Article| Michael Bell| Statement ..."
