Summary note
"García Márquez's writing is a literary order that will continue to be read, studied, and learned so long as there are practitioners, students, and lovers of literature. One Hundred Years of Solitude, of course, is admired by millions across the world, from high-school students to major novelists such as Salman Rushdie and the late Toni Morrison. The Oxford Handbook of Gabriel García Márquez takes a broad overview of the life and oeuvre of "Gabo" (as he is affectionately known throughout Latin America) and examines them thoroughly. The volume incorporates ongoing critical approaches such as feminism, ecocriticism, Marxism, and ethnic studies, as well as signalling such key aspects of García Márquez's work, as his Caribbean-Colombian background; his use of magical realism, myth, and folklore; and his left-wing political positions. Thirty-two wide-ranging chapters by a diverse and international group of experts deal with the bulk of the author's writings-both major and minor, early and late, long and short-as well as his involvement with film. They also give due attention to the central roles played by romantic love, by his prose style, and by the various kinds of music in his literary art. Particularly worth of mention are the contributors' extensive discussions of the world-wide artistic impact of García Márquez-on established canons, on the Global South, on imaginative writing in South Asia, China, Japan, and throughout Africa and the Arab world. More than a Latin American author, he truly qualifies as a global phenomenon. This is the first book on García Márquez that places the Colombian within that wider context"-- Provided by publisher.
