About this Item

Near Fine in Wraps: shows only the most minute indications of use: just a hint of wear to extremities, and the outside edge of the front panel seems to want to curl ever so slightly; else only the mildest rubbing. The binding is square and secure; the text is clean. No longer absolutely pristine, but remains very close to 'As New'. REMAINDER, showing a small mark at the bottom edge. NOT a Book-Club or Ex-Library. 8vo. 160pp. (Twayne's Masterwork Studies Series). First Edition Thus [1991], Second Printing. Trade Paperback. Regina Janes offers a comprehensive, engaging analysis of Gabriel García Márquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude, taking into account the multiple "modes of reading" and interpreting this masterpiece and Latin American bestseller. Janes approaches this novel through its literary and historical contexts and explains the many ways that readers have understood One Hundred Years of Solitude: politically, biographically, intertextually, and from the angles of myth and magical realism. In the process, Janes provides a convincing examination of the novel itself, observing that "If García Márquez does have a single, modern myth for us, it may be the desirability of preserving, fostering, nurturing our sense of unreality. Neither the real world in which we are mired nor the books we read to remove ourselves, temporarily, to a better world should be entirely believed" (p.130). I appreciate Janes's work for its recognition and analysis of the multiple ways of interpreting this text, and I recommend it to anyone who wants a deeper understanding of the critical discourse surrounding One Hundred Years of Solitude. First Edition Thus [1991], Second Printing. Bookseller Inventory # 44256
