The Novelist of Love

The Novelist of Love

(p.194) Ten The Novelist of Love
García Márquez

Gene H. Bell-Villada

University of North Carolina Press

García Márquez has been regarded as one of the great writers of romantic love. His idea of love and the way he has written it is true in its form, which is both fearsome and joyous. García Márquez's fascination with love can be seen even in his earliest articles, where he tells of lovers reunited after many trials or of how technologies such as the telephone have changed the habits of courtship. Solitude is also a story of love, both familial and romantic. García Márquez's novella The Incredible and Sad Tale of Innocent Eréndira and Her Heartless Grandmother is analyzed herein because of its depiction of love for sale, young love, and unrequited love happening in the Guajira desert. Another story discussed in this chapter is the Chronicle of a Death Foretold, which is a parody love story, García Márquez's darkest book so far.
