One of the twentieth century’s enduring works, One Hundred Years of Solitude is a
widely beloved and acclaimed novel known throughout the world and the ultimate
achievement in a Nobel Prize–winning career.
The novel tells the story of the rise and fall of the
mythical town of Macondo through the history of the Buendía family. Rich and
brilliant, it is a chronicle of life, death, and the tragicomedy of humankind.
In the beautiful, ridiculous, and tawdry story of the Buendía family, one sees
all of humanity, just as in the history, myths, growth, and decay of Macondo,
one sees all of Latin America.
Love and lust, war and revolution, riches and poverty, youth
and senility, the variety of life, the endlessness of death, the search for peace
and truth—these universal themes dominate the novel. Alternately reverential
and comical, One Hundred Years of
Solitude weaves the political, personal, and spiritual to bring a new
consciousness to storytelling. Translated into dozens of languages, this
stunning work is no less than an account of the history of the human race.
