Analysis of “A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings by Gabriel Garcia Marquez”

The artifice of “A actual Old Man with Enormous Wings” is fantastic, but such aberrant access is accepted for Marques. This is a adventure of an angel, who came into this world, but bodies banned to admit him, so the aghast angel had to leave[1]. Marques acclimated a language, which appears to be rather simple: he aloof tells a adventure as if he was cogent it to children: with simple words and after too abundant arcane sophistication. This makes the adventure agnate to a fable or a parable. The adventure develops in analytic time breeze from the alpha to the end. Marques, as an author, takes a aloof position in the text, he provides an overview of that what has happened and leaves a abandon of appraisal for the reader. However, a clairvoyant can hardly abort to be moved, at atomic because alike a simply-told adventure is fantastic: an angel comes to the world. Another aim of Marques’s simple and alike arid accent is to accentuate the alienation of best of the characters, whether it is ancestor Gonzaga, who rejects an angel because the angel does not allege Latin, a accent of Roman Catholic Church, or Elisenda, who finds annihilation better, than to advertise tickets, as if seeing an angel was a show. The abstraction of Marques is obvious: bodies are so far from God, that they are clumsy to admit His messenger. Time and abode of the adventure are unknown. It can alone be suggested, that it is some Spanish-speaking country. Marques speaks of the time as “in those times” authoritative a adventure alike added agnate to a legend. Such appearance of autograph is rendered as ‘magical realism’, because it is afar from absoluteness by ambiguity of time and abode and by accomplished blundering of absolute and absurd elements[2]. Marques has himself alleged “A actual Old Man with Enormous Wings” a adventure for children. It has been accounting in the aeon amid his two battleground novels: ‘One Hundred Years of Solitude’ and ‘The Autumn of the Patriarch’ in a clearly accessible manner[3]. Nevertheless, it includes about all elements of bewitched realism, which can be begin in his abundant books: a world, which exists by itself after ties with the surrounding, absurd creatures which access the world, and biblical accent of story-telling. Is it a adventure for children? In a way yes, it is a adventure for accouchement or at atomic for those who are not yet spiritually adult. It is not Marques’s fault, that best of his admirers appears to be “spiritual children”. As any accouchement they accept to be warned about accessible poor after-effects of their action, and in this faculty the adventure of Marques represents such warning. Actually annihilation happens in the story, what can be alleged acutely angry except for one thing: bodies in their circadian accepted accept abandoned God. Works cited: 1.
