Hispanic America produced much creative talent in the field of literature starting in the 1940s. This period flourished despite the region being a much-afflicted civilization. Literary fame and appreciation did not just permeate into Latin America's elites but also into the reading public and intelligentsia, as proof that literature is relevant in the sociopolitical debate and in turn contributes to the development of Latin American nations. One artist symbolized Latin American creativity, and that is Gabriel García Márquez and his novel One Hundred Years of Solitude. In this chapter, the novel and its extent of influence are analyzed. Human-interest accounts and anecdotes that pertain to the novel, its characters and scenes, and to García Márquez himself are included in the discussion. As the foundation of the concept of the novel is established, the discussion moves on to the analysis of the novel itself and its waning glory in other parts of the world.

Keywords:   literature, intelligentsia, García Márquez, novel, sociopolitical debate, Latin American nations
