    Marquez is pure magic It s been a long time since I ve read him, except for the novella No One Writes to the Colonel two years back, so this was in effect a reintroduction to his work And the enchantment has not faded.Marquez resembles three of my favourite authors William Faulkner, Franz Kafka and Ernest Hemingway His decadent town of Macondo, where most of the stories happen in a connected universe, owes much to Faulkner s Yoknapatawpha County And his prose, moving on in sentence after impressionistic sentence without a pause for breath so that you get lost in its cadence without caring for its meaning, is pure Faulkner The heartbeat of his fictitious universe soon starts melding into that of the reader and he she sees, hears, smells, touches and tastes through the author s creations.But unlike Faulkner, Marquez moves effortlessly into fantasy without advertising the fact like Gregor Samsa in Kafka s The Metamorphosis, his characters can find themselves in any weird situation in fact, Marquez has openly admitted Kafka s influence They die, live, move across time and space, get transformed into ghosts and spirits and involved in myriad other weird situations in the space of a few pages.But in some stories, the author suddenly drops all his flowery phrases and parabolic descriptions and goes for a hard bitten narrative, where life and death walk the streets of the somnolent Latin American towns Here, he resembles Hemingway with his spare prose and hard hitting plotlines The book is a compendium of three collections Eyes of a Blue Dog, Big Mama s Funeral and The Incredible and Sad Tale of Innocent Erendira and Her Heartless Grandmother Of these, the first one contains mostly surrealist pieces which reads like prose poems than stories except for The Woman Who Came at Six O Clock , a classic tale in the Hemingway mould, about a woman who may have committed a murder My favourite from this collection is Monologue of Isobel Watching It Rain in Macondo , about a young woman whose sense of existence starts slowly dissolving in incessant rain I experienced it recently in Kerala The title story, Big Mama s Funeral , is undoubtedly the star of the second collection By delineating the death of a matriarch and its aftermath, it attains the level of the mythological in this, it foreshadows The Autumn of the Patriarch, I felt It also contains many Hemingway esque tales Tuesday Siesta , There Are No Thieves in This Town , Balthazar s Marvelous Afternoon , One of These Days all filled with a sense of fatalism and quiet brutality The third collection contains two of my favourite fables A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings , about an aged and destitute angel who falls down to earth and becomes a village curiosity and The Handsomest Drowned Man in the World , about a corpse which becomes the icon of a fishing community Innocent Erendira is a frightening fairy tale about a young, prepubescent girl cruelly exploited by her grandmother, a rehash of the evil stepmother trope but much malignant Every fairy tale motif is inverted here Almost all the tales in this collection are surreal, and engrossing An exquisite collection P.S A suggestion if you are new to Marquez, don t try to get the stories Most of the time, they may not make logical sense Just get lost in the telling You will enjoy it If you don t, then maybe Marquez is not for you.

    December 2009Some possibilities 1 I may have gone in over my head with this one Gabriel Garc a M rquez is quite 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 volume collection would be just as simple and delightful Perhaps Garc a M rquez or his stories, at least should not be read so casually.2 Maybe Gabriel Garc a M rquez isn t so great I mean, maybe his stories aren t so great I mean, maybe his earlier work, written when he was much younger, isn t nearly as good as his later stories and his novels I mean, argh, don t hurt me Please don t tell Oprah, I ll be good, I promise I m sorry I m sorry I m sorry2 1 2 Pssst Overhere Wehaveto whisper. So maybe the quality of Gabriel Garc a M rquez s earlier stories presented here in chronological order arent nearly as strong as his other work I mean, lets face it, magical realism for magical realism s sake isn t easy to pull off, especially in a story collection like this That s not to say all but one story were bad aside from Old Man, I liked The Woman Who Came at Six O Clock, Balthazar s Marvelous Afternoon, The Handsomest Drowned Man in the World, and a handful of others the rest just didn t really speak to me But I could be wrong Perhaps I should try some of his novels instead Are they gone yet Can I come out now

    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 Literature.The 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 imagery The second volume, Big Mama s Funeral, is set in Macondo, Garcia Marquez 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 Marquez s fiction, in this collection, transcends the micro view to take on the macro one.The 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 Marquez 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.

    Reading Gabriel Garcia Marquez is like coming home, a home crammed with the most wondrous oddities Birds of wild plumage Winds that scrape against sanity Seas that overcome and drown you But there s not a trace of cold heart stopping fear Marquez s realms are Sublime Collected Stories is a compilation of three collections Eyes of A Blue Dog, Big Mama s Funeral, and The Tale of Innocent Erendira and Her Heartless Grandmother Respectively, each of these collections were originally published in No One Writes to the Colonel and Other Stories, Leaf Storm and Other Stories, and Innocent Erendira and Other Stories, and I believe the difference between initial published collections and this compilation is that this text doesn t include the title novellas, save for Innocent Erendira Spanning work from 1947 to 1972, the first two stories of this compilation, from Eyes of a Blue Dog, are preoccupied with death Though highly abstract, and, at the same time, visceral, the details twitch and flitter, making the skin crawl Death elicits unease, yet this macabre obsession shows hints toward a writer s meager canvas The characters embody smallness of mind An ego coddling itself Much of the first collection is filled with amorphous plots and insulated characters As the stories progress, and, as we move from one collection to another, we see Marquez step outside of his own neuroses and evolve as artist His maturation is one of literature s greatest treasures As the writer strengthens his style, the tales grow sophisticated with multiple characters, interaction, dialogue, and wild tangles of narrative.Most often, on the first read, Marquez may be difficult to analyze for literal meaning We simply can t Our instinct may be to kick back and enjoy the imagery, the sound of the language and the accumulation of tones and hues What Marquez may lack in characterization and narrative, he certainly makes up for in description and imagery of time and space From Monologue of Isabel the notion of time, upset since the day before, disappeared completely then there was no Thursday What should have been Thursday was a physical, jelly like substance thing that could have been parted with the hands in order to look into Friday 100 Then it rained And the sky was a gray, jellyfish like substance that flapped its wings a hand away from our heads 94.From The Other Side of Death , Gently wrapped in the warm climate of a covered serenity, he felt the lightness of his artificial and daily death He sank into a loving geography, into an easy, ideal world, a world like one drawn by a child, with no algebriac equations, with no living farewells, no force of gravity 17.From the collection Big Mama s Funeral, Marquez lends from Shakespeare in There are no Thieves in this Town when husband and wife plot against their small home town in South America, they re soon torn asunder from guilt The burden of masquerading as innocent proves too much for them One Day After Saturday honors Woolf and Joyce Marquez jumps from characters thoughts and reveals how each are bound, in a small town, by a mysterious phenomena We slip through them like wisps of air, feeling and knowing every individual breath and spirit Marquez, in the spirit of the Modernists, challenges the singularity of existence He affirms the beauty of fiction, the power of fiction, and the danger of stories in that we can find connection though we may feel estranged from even our closest loved ones.Death is still prominent but holds meaning in the last collection The Incredible and Sad Tale of Innocent Erendira and Her Heartless Grandmother Instead of a single pitiful life hanging in the balance, towards the end of the collection, mortality signifies the ruin of a country, the decay of a culture, and the corruptness of a civilization The Sea of Roses is utterly intoxicating A story that will hold you Hunger and death are close siblings, clambering for our attention The Handsomest Drowned Man in the World an absolute gem, the imagery and characters are embedded into my artistic DNA A Christ like tale, but not really, in this story, a stranger washes up on shore, and the town people s hearts grow wider, their faith and compassion, stronger Instead of focusing on the afflicted man who inspired hope, we turn our gaze to the people themselves and revel in their own strength and beauty, their fatally exquisite flaws, which mean collectively than the death, or life, for that matter, of a single man The Last Voyage of the Ghost Ship, another homage to the Modernists of Woolf and Joyce, is complete stream of consciousness, no punctuation Thoughts bleed into each other Readers, take your time with this one and be sure to come up for air so you can marvel in this tale that will consume you This work must be kin to another of Marquez s from the collection, Strange Pilgrims, Light is Like Water where young boys push the boundaries of imagination and rebel against the pedestrian adult world A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings is another tale burned to memory All I can say is if you haven t read it, or any of the tales from Innocent Erendira, then you haven t really known how wonderful literature can be As I read these tales, I grew hungry to learn their back stories Where did Marquez get his characters What snippets of conversations, snatches of songs and tidbits of heresy inspired these wonderful pieces of Art Which ones were lifted from newspapers Are the kernels of each from yarns his grandparents spun for him How many are slips of childhood memories Marquez s words are imprinted in the genetic makeup of all my writerly endeavors I look to him as all life seeks bright rays of light.
