Garcia Marquez has his own genre to contend with and it’s works such as these that make him a recognizable figure in innoxent literary consciousness. His short stories are fables and allegories This is like literally reading artwork.
Dec 29, Steven Godin rated it really liked it Shelves: This collection of earlier work features stories abound with love affairs, ruined beauty, magical women, and perspectives on death. Are all similar in style but only about half are really good, with Innocent Erendira the one stand out. You feel like most of these are rough idea’s that would later show up in his full on novels and novellas. You also know right xtories the off this is Marquez, that is of course, if you have already read him.
Innocent Erendira and Other Stories : Gabriel Garcia Marquez :
For anyone that hasn’t, this isn’t a bad place to start be This collection of earlier work features stories abound with love affairs, ruined beauty, magical women, and perspectives on death. For anyone that hasn’t, this isn’t a bad place to start before venturing off into his more recognizable work. I have always been enthralled with his style, not so much with some of his themes.
He drags his heels through the dust at times with whimsical insights into the human condition, whilst playing around with your thoughts. This book is an odd assortment that the publisher mushed together. Also “Eyes of the Blue Dog”, was pretty weak. Apart from that all stories are either three or four star standard. His trademark ‘magical realism’ undergoes an acid trio in places, worthy or unworthy depending how you see it, similar to a William Burroughs or Hunter.
Thompson, which is hit and miss, whilst death is something that plays heavy on most of the stories, he seems morbidly conscious of the deteriorating human body for some strange reason. Other things that show up, a doppelganger, surrealistic painters, and a bartender who falls for a whore.
But it’s the title novella that showcases his genius, about a ruthless grandmother pimping her granddaughter to obtain reparations for the house that was burned down due to the carelessness of the granddaughter.
There is sexual titillation and underlying themes of religion here, done in way much more richly textured and refined that the rest of the pack.
As a whole this collection is down the pecking order compared to his most famous work, showing flashes here and there of what was to follow in later years, laying a marker down and confounding a Kafkaesque introspection perhaps best documented as experiments along the way.
I probably would have scored this a three overall had it not been for the title story. Put simply, this is a writer in the process of honing his skills. Fragancias de rosa que abren las puertas del mar. Y Ulises, el contrabandista de naranjas. Mentira, nada que ver, jaja. Hoy, lo vuelve a hacer de la misma manera. Jan 21, Hend rated it really liked it Shelves: The woman who came at six o’clock it portrays the conflict between good and evil,the innocence of Jose a restaurant owner,and Reina a prostitute who used to come at the resta the theme common in most of these short stories is death Death constant beyond love about obsessiveness, political corruption and love that has no chance Eyes of a blue dog describes the feeling of loneliness and fear View all 6 comments.

And sometimes, I guess, writing stories gives you the freedom of expl Oh, the first story – A very old man with enormous wings – is absolutely fantastic, and it reminded me of this wonderful painting by Romanian artist Stefan Caltia: And sometimes, I guess, writing stories gives you the freedom of exploring new techniques – as in one of these stories, where the first full stop is actually at the very end and I had to read it in full speed, holding my breath.
I finally made up my mind.
Marquez kicks Pamuk’s ass. Bazi kitaplar tek kelimeyle bile anlatilabilir, bu da onlardan biri: Oykulerin aralarindaki minik baglantilar da cok hosuma gitti. Bana buyulu gerceklikle ilgili bir kitap onerebilir oher diyen herkese bu kitabi soyleyecegim artik. Bir kitaptan aldigim en buyuk zevki aldim, o kadar guzel ki sanki uyumadan once Marquez yataginizin basucunda size teker teker anlatiyor gibi.
Her betimlemesi, her diyalogu, her cumlesi bir saheser.
Nov 13, Ema rated it it was amazing Shelves: Nov 14, Laura M. Uno de mis primeros libros y lo ame En ellos desarrolla su original y bien consolidada propuesta literaria, conjuntando tanto el estilo formal como el experimental. Para nosotros los lectores, esto significa que no debemos tomar al pie de la letra los sucesos narrados.
En las redes podemos encontrar numerosas opiniones de lectores escandalizados por las historias de este tipo de libros, basando sus juicios en la moralidad y la autenticidad de los hechos narrados. Trata sobre el hallazgo de un hombre con alas y de la torpeza con que la que se le trata.
Se ubica en un desafortunado pueblo costero, en donde en lugar de enterrar a los muertos se les lanza al mar.

La trama es escandalosa: Feb 27, Frankie rated it liked it Shelves: This is a good start for ggb readers. The title story, at 60 pages practically a novella, is beautiful. There is a series of vaguely-connected shorts on the blur between sleep and death in the middle of the collection.
These I didn’t enjoy. The stream-of-consciousness technique and inner-dialogue made them difficult to follow. Especially “Eyes of a Blue Dog” — read it!
