In the time of COVID, we will savor the masterful writing and humor of this García Márquez novel. We will closely read and discuss the English translation and simultaneously read in the original Spanish (for those who are Spanish speakers). Spanish speakers may comment on the phenomenon of translation and on subtleties lost in translation. The Nobel prize winner once said that this was his favorite creation. It is inspired by the story of his parents’ love affair. He was an avid reader and imbued by the classics. My doctoral studies in the Spanish Literature of the Golden Age in Spain help prepare me to elucidate references and influences to be found in García Márquez.
