García Márquez

Gene H. Bell-Villada

University of North Carolina Press

García Márquez is not just another great author from Latin America but is considered as the symbol of creativity in Latin American letters in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. His high art is coupled with common touch that enabled him to reach a fairly large audience and inspired affection among them. García Márquez's fame and public presence resemble that of Hugo in France, yet his reach is not just confined to Latin America but extends to other parts of the world too. García Márquez has inspired not just common readers but also other writers through his themes, subjects, and moods. He changed literature, and readers' thoughts on life and fiction, after his writing of One Hundred Years of Solitude.
