Macondo: el cosmos de Gabriel García Márquez

  • David Castillo Aguirre


This work approaches the cosmos that sustains and contains the work with which the Nobel Prize in Literature, Gabriel García Márquez, (re)defined the Latin American lineage: Macondo. Through the story "Monólogo de Isabel viendo llover en Macondo" (Isabel's monologue while watching it rain in Macondo), the aim is to rediscover the author's bizarre work and unravel the code hidden behind its lyrics. For such purposes, the analysis-synthesis method is used, by means of which it is possible to decompose the story to read it, connect it with the novel "One Hundred Years of Solitude" and, subsequently, recompose it in a newly developed way. Finally, some conclusions about the story are sketched and the reader is invited to participate in the magical realism it entails.
