    I own about 70 copies of illegally photocopied versions of this book so I can use it with my students in class And unlike most books I teach I read this one every yearWhy? 'Cuz it's an unbelievable textI firmly believe that Santiago Nasar is one of literature's greatest Christ figures Many of Garcia's books have Christ figures of course but Santiago is Jesus with a twist When the book starts Santiago is portrayed as a bad man who is wasteful and immoral and violent When he is fingered for taking the virginity of a non whore any reader would believe in his guiltBut by the end of the book it is obvious that Santiago did not commit the crime Garcia hides the line where this is stated uneuivocally but it is there But he is killed nonetheless multiple times actually and the entire town who did not stop the attack on Santiago feels guilty for their inaction for the next twenty yearsIt's such a brilliant idea that is told so exuisitely that I can't think of a better sub 100 page book to read over a two day period And my students can't either as I have never had a disappointed student Ever

    Truth in the title the title tells us exactly the plot of the novel A man is stabbed to death He’s a fairly wealthy young man he’s 21 who runs a cattle ranch inherited from his father There’s an interesting ethnic twist His father’s family speaks Arabic at home and his Spanish mother on occasion calls him “white man” Although the locals call his family ‘Turks’ because they are Catholic it’s likely they were Lebanese and arrived in Colombia where the story is set from the great mixing and melting pot of the Caribbean The title tells us all we need to know and very early on in the story we know why he was killed so I’m not giving away any plot Another wealthy man in town has just had the most extravagant wedding ever seen in the town But the next morning the bridegroom ‘returns the bride’ to her family because she has been deflowered by the young man who will then be killed by her two brothers The day of the murder the brothers make no secret of their intentions They wander around town telling people what they intend to do By mid morning just about everyone in town has heard them say they will kill him So why is nothing done? Everyone has an excuse There’s a big commotion in town because the bishop is coming by riverboat to wave at folks and give the town a blessing So even the priest thinks ‘this is a criminal matter that doesn’t concern me' Most folks assume it’s just ‘drunk talk' The mayor has the police chief take away their hog butchering knives when they are seen sharpening them But they have plenty of knives Also it’s assumed they are talking to so many folks that someone will stop them and maybe they want to be stoppedThe story is told retrospectively from almost 30 years later A fascinating read that under the author’s masterful writing makes the entire story perfectly plausible “We killed him openly” Pedro Vicario said but we’re innocent”A good read Small town in Colombia from arrangedtravelerscomPhoto of the author from nprcom

    ‘’There had never been a death foretold’’ Santiago is murdered in the market of a Colombian town The perpetrators are two brothers His crime? The supposed defilement of their sister whose marriage to a young man was broken because she wasn’t a virgin Máruez does something extraordinary here He creates one of his finest works a crime mystery where the uestion isn’t who or what but why Why did everything happen in such a way? Why do people have to resort to such actions? Why are we worse than the wildest animals? Máruez is concerned with human nature and the origin of truth and lies In nonlinear narrative written in first person account based on real life events Máruez creates a masterpiece whose title entered our everyday speech whose inevitable violence still shocks us ‘’Lowlifes’’ shitty animals that can’t do anything that isn’t something awful’’ When I first read this novella some 10 odd years ago I was studying in university and a colleague asked me why on Earth would I ever read a book whose outcome is known beforehand There is an idiot in every corner and Máruez seemed to know that well The portraits of the town residents couldn’t have been darker They condemn Santiago because his origins aren’t the same as their own He is an Other therefore he is guilty without the benefit of doubt Does this ring a bell? Everybody knows what is to come but no one warns him The police do nothing the priest forgets the most fundamental of Christ’s teaching and does nothing When the mob condemns you you don’t stand a chance Máruez’s contempt and disgust are evident throughout the novellaMáruez also touches on the themes of gender euality and ‘’purity’’ Santiago isn’t painted in favourable colours his contempt and violence towards women are often mentioned Angela is a rather controversial character too You cannot take a solemn vow whether she speaks the truth or not she is fickle and empty headed and as much of a tragic character like Santiago Was she raped? Was she in love with an other man? These are the actual mysteries of the story ‘’I saw the knives in the light from the street lamps and it looked to me that they were dripping blood’’ Máruez is the writer who paved the way for Magical Realism incorporating its elements to each story in a subtle poetic way making the narration flow without turning into Fantasy This became a common feature in Latin American Literature and uite a few writers tried to mimic him with poor results In Chronicle of a Death Foretold the omens acuire an almost Biblical significance The weather the animals primarily dogs the prophetic dreams bring to mind the fables of the signs that precede a catastrophe Think of the omens described in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar in the night before the vile murder took placeEvery book by Máruez reuires patience dedication and a close attention to the story in order to fully understand the wealth and magic of his writing Máruez is a Latin American Dostoevsky a writer that should be reuired reading if we want teenagers to ever become accomplished readers ‘’Give me a prejudice and I will move the world’’ My reviews can also be found on

    There had never been a death so foretold Máruez's oeuvre may be roughly divided into two streams of writing the magician of One Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera and the journalist adventurer of this novel and News of a Kidnapping The ominous world of magic realism closes shop when Maruez switches his gears to journalistic storytelling But may be not uite; because right from the opening scene an eerie premonition trails at the heels of Santiago Nasar and do what he might catches him unawares to punish him for a crime he might or might not have committed In this novella the writer narrator sets himself up to the task of investigating the events that led to the death so foretoldYou may call it a reportage of an impossible and inexplicable murder that could have been prevented with just a shout You may call it story of a man who must pay for violating the unwritten code of honour when he is suspected of deflowering Angela Vicario his best pal's sister hours before she was to get married to another man Or you may simply call it a story of an honour killing but unlike other stories of this kind this is not yet another banal attempt aimed at soliciting public's disgust at the horrific practice told from the moral high ground of an observer's point of view It does not portray the entire value system backward and barbaric which stories of this kind are wont to do but operates from inside the culture to report on the dynamics that lead to and make something like this possible This objectivity sits at the heart of good writing and this sets Máruez apart from a bevy of writers who have produced stereotypical fictional accounts of a culture at war with itselfI won't call it unreliable narration but rather a deliberate building up of ambiguity with respect to the victim's role Was Santiago Nasar guilty of dishonouring Angela Vicario or was there a big misunderstanding all along made all the complicated by a surfeit of circumstantial evidence? Here you have Máruez the master investigative journalist with the best implements of his trade testing your powers of observation and turning you into a witness who is being strung along willy nilly by a powerful voice It's one of those novels where the process of telling a story is greater than the story itself In other words how it's told rather than what's toldBy the honour of Angela Vicario this is a story uneualed in its telling

    Nobel Laureate Gabriel Garcia Maruez who is best known for his One Hundred Years of Solitude penned a novella A Chronicle of Death Foretold based on real life events that he witnessed In this novella Maruez tells through the eyes of an unnamed narrator the events that lead to the murder of Santiago Nasar It is in the characterizations of the personas this short book that we get a taste of Maruez' brilliance which won him many honors during his writing career Santiago Nasar is the only child of Ibrahim Nasar and Placida Nacido He is engaged to be married to Flor Miguel but as his father before him has engaged in trysts with his housekeeper's daughter Likewise he has freuented a whorehouse and has an intimate relationship with its matron Meanwhile Bayardo San Ramon and Angela Vicario are to be married Angela is not a virgin and San Ramon kicks her out of their marriage chamber She is dishonored by her mother and her twin brothers Pablo and Pedro are determined to kill the man responsible for their sister's reckless behavior All signs point to Santiago Nasar The narrator tells this tale when all principal players have reached middle age A boyhood friend of Nasar and a cousin of the Vicarios he is determined to find out if Nasar was really guilty Angela has paid the price living like an old maid yet still professing her love to Bayardo San Ramon after all these years Yet despite the narrator's attempts to piece all the evidence together Angela will not reveal the key clue leaving the reader hanging throughout this short tale Even in this short tale it is obvious to me that Garcia Maruez knows how to weave a story together I am fan of Isabel Allende and people tell me that her writing reminds them of Garcia Maruez As this is my first taste of his writing I can sense the similarities many characters in a Latin American village the opening sentences containing flashbacks and a high level of magical realism I rate this novella 4 stars for its short length as I look forward to reading Garcia Maruez' opus which earned him international renown

    On the day they were going to kill him Santiago Nasar got up at five thirty in the morning to wait for the boat the bishop was coming on A grand wedding A gruesome murder And a multitude of lives changed forever Chronicle of a Death Foretold is a novella which recounts a fictionalized account inspired by an actual incident of honor killing in Colombia back in 1951 now immortalized in this 1981 novellaThe story is about the series of events leading up to a murder and its aftermath It is written in pseudo journalistic style in the form of interviewed accounts staged 20 years after the tragedy The fantastic aspects of the novel are that the victim is made to be a Jesus like figure so much so that his death is almost likened to crucifixion One can also relate to the theatrics of the death of Julius Caesar while reading this story The death of Julius Caesar Fun fact The novel led to a 17 year legal battle after a man claimed unlawful use of his life story for the novel

  8. Steven Godin Steven Godin says:

    Stabbing a man to death is not as easy as it sounds after all it took 23 swipes at poor old Julius Caesar but only one of them was actually deemed fatal It takes a hell of an effort Not like that seen in those pathetic slasher movies where a big breasted peroxide blonde is chased around a mansion by a nutcase bearing a huge blade that only dishes out flesh woundsChronicling the murder of one Santiago Nasar in a small unnamed South American village Máruez dazzles in a fictional world that is as pungently sharp as the knives used to kill it's a murder everyone in town knew was coming yet no one wanted ''Never was a death foretold'' says the the novels narrator recounting the events of that fateful day in fact it's many years later where the story is told from using the recollections of various townsfolk a picture is slowly built up of just who and why this horrendous act took place The purpose is less to do with trying solve any mystery as the deed was committed in broad daylight by two brothers who understood their sister had been dishonored by Nasar it's based on the determination to try and understand why no one was able to prevent the death from happening Spare in tone and somewhat bizarre it's a clever piece of writing that explores the nature of complicity and fate and of how an act of savage intent can effect so many lives over time Máruez utilizes mysticism and spirituality in his writing that represents culture and symbolizes meaning within the context of the work The death of Santiago may not have been avoided partially due to the strange inabilities of his characters to connect with their spiritual powers Both Santiago’s mother and his god mother are unable to ‘truly feel his demise’ Mostly random thoughts and actions of several different people contribute to altering the course of that murderous day with the fate of Santiago totally left in the hands of othersAlthough a uick read what I admired the most was the fact it's a deeper story than you think it's not just the death of one but the suffering of many those who are burdened with failed responsibilities the knives may have been in the hands of the killers but seemingly the whole village also has a tight grip around them this makes the story all the powerful and ultimatelysad in the end leaving an open wound on the people unlikely ever to heal

    They've killed me Wene child he saidChronicle of a Death Foretold by Gabriel García Máruez is an interesting and a strange true story narrated and reconstructed by the author himself of a murder that took place 27 years earlier in a Caribbean town where the author grew up This novel is a detailed account of the entire incident with data collected and accumulated from various sources The author also gives the reader a feel of living in a Caribbean town

  10. Kevin Ansbro Kevin Ansbro says:

    I read this short masterpiece ages ago but it only recently resurfaced in my mind like a forgotten dream It's a tense drama of murder foretold written in the magical realism style for which Columbian novelist Maruez was lionisedI really need to read it again to reacuaint myself with its succulent excellenceDitto Don uixote and so many other exuisitely written novels that are now consigned to the backroom of my cluttered mind
