Each generic component of Chronicle of a Death Foretold is expressed stylistically. The journalistic concern comes through both in Garcia Marquez detached consideration of the daily habits of the denizens of the town as well as in a strict time line. The novel is calibrated down to the minute. We know that Santiago woke up at 5:30 in the morning to see the bishop, and that he was dead by 7:05. To put Garcia Marquez style in flatly journalistic terms, he is always concerned with showing us the who, where, when and how.

He is also concerned with the why, which comprises the psychological component of the story. As the title suggests, there is no mystery surrounding the death of Santiago Nasar , the character based on the historical Cayetano. We know that he is killed, when he is killed and who killed him immediately. But the why of his death-the complex social milieu that both tolerates and despises the murder-is not so clear. Marquez dispassionately (more or less) presents the social pressures at work, allowing us not a simple answer or a simple judgment but merely a glimpse into the welter of justice and injustice foregrounded by Santiago and Angela s alleged tryst.

    While I too think it s good to "come clean" about not doing your work, I d be doing you no favor by doing this work for you. You need to learn there are consequences for not doing your assignments. There is nothing ridiculous about a 1500 word essay -- what is ridiculous is you not reading the books and being prepared to write it and then asking us to help you cheat! And, I don t care about "thumbs down" or not getting "best answer". The truth often hurts!

    Why do you think that Gabriel García Márquez used real names in his text? How does this decision influence the reader''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s experience of the narrative?

    The concept of honor shapes the actions of everyone in the Colombian town where the murder occurs. This is one of the strongest differences between the Spanish culture presented in the novel and American culture. In America, the strict adherence to hierarchical, traditional ideals is far less practiced, even in the 1950s, and the definition of gender roles was less misogynistic than it is in the novel.

    Discuss the structure of the novel. How is it laid out-linearly, cyclically, randomly, or in some other way? How does this structure inform the novel s themes?

    Who are what is most to blame for Santiago Nasar s murder and why? Is any person or social institution more to blame for Santiago s murder than others?

    Because many characters reappear in his works, because many of the works are set in Macondo (unnamed here, but recognizable as the fictional counterpart of his birthplace, Aracataca), and because of the persistently fabulous nature of his Magical Realism, García Márquez’s novels and short stories may be said to constitute one grand fiction, of which Chronicle of a Death Foretold is a significant part.

    The novel is based on a real event that took place in Sucre, Columbia in 1951. The real story occured on January 22, 1951. Cayetano Gentile, a handsome medical student of Italian parents, was.

Chronicle of a Death Foretold was an immediate success; more than a million copies of the novel were printed in its initial publishing run. Marquez won the Nobel Prize in literature in 1982, the following year.
