Chronicle of a Death Foretold

Refresh and try again. In a small Caribbean village, the inhabitants finally fall asleep after the great feast given at the ums of Bayardo San Roman and Angela Vicario. But at two o’clock in the morning, the bridegroom suddenly brings Angela back to her parents’ house. He repudiates her because she lied about her virginity at the time of the marriage. When the twins Pedro and Pablo Vicario, Angela’s brothers, go home, they decide to avenge the family honor by killing Santiago Nasar, the one who, according to their sister, is responsible for his repudiation.

Chronicle of a Death Foretold is a story of surprising strength despite its brevity.

Cronica de uma morte anunciada : Gabriel Garcia Marquez :

What power in the terms used, what suspense felt by the author’s stroke of genius: Minute per minute, the situation is analyzed in depth and the different implications and reasons for the murder committed by the Vicario brothers gradually unfold.

Desire of vengeance, of course.

Obligation, for two young men, to launder family honor by shedding the blood of a man whose guilt is not yet established with certainty. In fact, neither Pablo nor Pedro seems delighted to commit this irreparable act.


As the narrator explains the facts, one realizes that if the twins tell everyone what they are preparing to do, it is because they hope to be arrested before facts.

They want someone, anyone, even a woman, to prevent them from killing Nasar. Or, at least, that their future victim be warned, so that Nasar can shelter himself or be able to defend himself. The Vicario brothers are not murderers, it is the habits and customs of their society that really killed Nasar. Indirectly, but as surely as the knives used by the twins. If the virginity of a woman before marriage was not so great in this small remote Caribbean village, if Angela had not lied about the identity of the official, if she had confessed to her future husband that she was not a virgin, if someone had warned Nasar if he had slept in the morning instead of getting up early to catch sight of the bishop’s boat passing the river behind the village These are all very diverse and apparently unrelated elements that lead Nasar to his loss.

Has the author himself investigated this fact, which has marked him to the point of inspiring him with a story?

However, despite this realism, the share of “magic”, typical of the author, is not lacking. And to be sure that his narrative marks the spirits, the author does not hesitate to make walk and talk a dying Santiago Nasar who, while holding the entrails that fall out of his belly, manages to go home making the turn of the house the Vicario brothers killed him while Nasar was trying to go home by the front door, locked to shout at a neighbor: September 6, — Shelved as: May 6, — Shelved as: December 11, — Shelved as: December 21, — Shelved as: February 5, — Shelved as: June 6, — Shelved as: January 5, — Shelved as: April 6, — Shelved as: December 1, — Shelved as: Feb 05, I just put it on hold at my local library.


Feb 06, But the second book, Of Love and Other Demons was of minor expectations for me. And in the final of this one, I got right. But the I liked your review more than I liked the book. You got more out of the book than I did.

Perhaps I should reread the book. I’ve still only read Love in the Time of Cholera, and the writing was lovely. One day I will hopefully get to this one, too.
