    I was stuck without a book at my relatives house today Fortunately, they were readers, so rooting through their bookshelves I found this novelette by Marquez which I had not yet read Talk about serendipity.This is a short story set in the familiar magical realism universe of Aureliano Buendia and the land of Macondo from One Hundred Years of Solitude However, there is no magic here it is the brutally realistic tale of the unnamed colonel and his wife, who live in penury in the all too familiar dictatorship of a South American nation Their son Augustin has been killed by the authorities for distributing seditious literature The colonel and his wife eke out their days, pinning their hopes on the military pension which should arrive any day and the fighting cock owned by their son, which would hopefully prove to be the champion, when the cockfight season arrives However, the exigencies of existence and his wife s constant nagging makes the colonel contemplate the unthinkable sell the cock to the bloodsucking trader Sabas But there is still time and as the fighting season arrives, the colonel recovers his dignity in the utter depths of shame.This small novelette is very rich in metaphor which talks to the reader at many levels The colonel, waiting for the letter every Friday which would announce his pension but is always doomed to disappointment No one writes to the colonel, as the postmaster says is the quintessential tragic hero albeit in modern non romantic garb The fighter cock is the symbol of his fast fading dignity, also the last thing to memorise their son by its sale to the rapacious capitalist is the last nail in the coffin of the proud manhood of a class Indeed, the cock, as Augustin s friends insist, does not belong to the colonel alone but to the country as a whole Metaphors of sickness abound the colonel s perennial stomache problem, his wife s asthma, and the severe diabetes of the trader Sabas The dreariness of the atmosphere is compounded by the incessantly falling rain.Vintage Marquez, in short.

    El libro de la espera y la obstinaci n Un coronel que espera todos los viernes la carta que le comunique su pensi n por veterano en la guerra que perdi Aureliano Buend a desde hace quince a os, que vive con su esposa asm tica en la m s profunda de las miserias, atado a las esperanzas puestas en un gallo de ri a, del que cree que es ganador, pero que no accede a vender Y mientras tantos los d as pasan Y tambi n las semanas y los meses.Gabriel Garc a M rquez es un genio indiscutido en la narrativa latinoamericana y mundial S lo l puede escribir una obra de arte como Cien a os de Soledad , una pieza de relojer a como Cr nica de una muerte anunciada y maravillosas historias como sta, de apenas cien p ginas.Me encant este libro porque su simpleza No enreda al lector en un realismo m gico ni narra una historia dif cil de comprender Nos cuenta sobre el por qu de la terquedad del coronel y de c mo soporta estoicamente el embate de su mujer y mucha gente que le dice que venda el gallo para no morirse de hambre.Para saber c mo es el desenlace de la historia, s lo hay que leer este librito maravilloso que a m me encant

    You can t eat hope, the woman said You can t eat it, but it sustains you, the colonel replied.

    Some time towards the end of 2017, I was stuck in a bookstore caf , shut in by the winter rain And so, as boredom haunted, I picked my first Garc a M rquez title for a light evening read to kill some time I ended up setting sail for a never ending voyage across the seas of Latin American literature No One Writes to the Colonel is a short and quick read The novella tells the story of an old colonel and his asthmatic wife and their struggle for survival as their finances run scarce The colonel, an old veteran of the Thousand Days War still hopes to receive the pension he was promised some fifteen years earlier The story is set in the period of La Violencia in Colombia, when martial law and censorship prevailed.The story was inspired by Garc a M rquez s grandfather, who was also a colonel and who never received the pension he was promised.

    El coronel no tiene quien le escriba No One Writes to the Colonel, Gabriel Garc a M rquez No One Writes to the Colonel Spanish El coronel no tiene quien le escriba is a novella written by the Colombian novelist and Nobel Prize in Literature winner Gabriel Garc a M rquez It also gives its name to a short story collection Garc a M rquez considered it his best book, saying that he had to write One Hundred Years of Solitude so that people would read No One Writes to the Colonel 1984 1361 104 1361 230 1370 230 1379 111 9649166882 1389 95 9789647109475 1389 197 9789643742102 1392

    His eyes fell upon other eyes exactly like his own A deeply moving tale of an enduring marriage The colonel and his asthmatic wife are rotting alive Bereaved of their only son, they are left to eke out a living in so repressed a town that it becomes increasingly difficult for the aging couple to preserve some sense of dignity As the colonel, every Friday, without fail, awaits a letter regarding his pension, which never arrives, and the wife appears always on the verge of a brutal asthma attack, they watch their love grow old and bodies wither away amidst the rampant moral corruption and hopelessness of their surroundings.In a society where voices, if ever raised, are persistently silenced, M rquez has weaved an intriguing tale, revolving around this elderly couple endeavoring to defend their honor and that of their deceased son The colonel and his wife, although extraordinarily defiant during the hardest of times, are relatable, and their grief remarkably palpable Simplicity is unquestionably the strength of this heartfelt tale.In the middle of the novella, the colonel acknowledges with sadness, All my comrades died waiting for the mail It is the same with the colonel He will wait until death devours him too Heartbreaking.

    Old age and poverty taken separately are great troubles But when they are combined they turn into a calamity It was seven twenty when he finished winding the clock Then he took the rooster into the kitchen, tied it to a leg of the stove, changed the water in the can, and put a handful of corn next to it A group of children came in through a hole in the fence They sat around the rooster, to watch it in silence.In spite of all its simplicity, this cock and colonel story is emotionally heart piercing The colonel is old and everything that happens in his life is happening slowly And to receive a letter has become a purpose of his living And his fighting cock is his only hope for the future No One Writes to the Colonel is a simple story but its stabbing sincerity grants it a profundity of a parable.

    In this incredibly short novel, Garc a M rquez tells the story of an elderly and senile Colonel who, every Friday, waits to receive his pension in the post However, he s never received his pension Not once in fifteen years Both the Colonel and his wife live in destitution in a small village in war torn Colombia They grieve the death of their son and try to sell off their belongings in order to continue living This is an utterly pessimistic novel The Colonel and his wife are living hopeless lives and in this hopelessness, Garc a M rquez thrives Nothing happens in the novel There isn t a beginning or an ending Like in Leaf Storm we are dropped into the middle of a story We are observers of the Colonel and we can t help him This is a really fantastic little story and shows are clear improvement in the structure and story problems I found in Leaf Storm Take me away Gabo

    Olvid que era su cumplea os Pero c mo ser el lazo que tengo con usted, que desde ayer en la noche no dejaba de pensarlo, intentando decidir cu l obra suya deb a acompa arme en el trayecto de la ma ana Al salir de casa, el elegido fue El Coronel Y el reencuentro ha sido fant stico en alg n pueblito de Colombia, en donde no escampa, en donde naci y vive una parte de la mejor literatura mundial.Esas fueron las palabras que dediqu en mi instagram, el lunes pasado, cuando tom esta novela corta de Garc a M rquez para iniciar la semana La primera vez que la le fue hace unos cinco a os y fue uno de los ltimos t tulos del autor que le Raro, considerando que es tambi n una de las obras m s conocidas del autor Sucede que por muchos a os estuve obsesionada con Cien A os y tuvo que pasar un largo tiempo para que me animara a aventurarme con otras de las novelas de Gabo, como si tuviera miedo de romper el hechizo de la primera y la mejor novela y no quisiera salir del mundo macondiano Siendo totalmente sincera, hay veces que a n pienso en el verdadero significado de El Coronel y que me hubiera gustado un final m s definido Puedo asumir que el Coronel an nimo sigui esperando y no se muri de hambre y quiz hubo alg n triunfo en las peleas de gallo Pero, y si no Usualmente no coloco entre mis favoritos los libros cuyo final es tan abierto, pero a esta novela se lo perdono, porque s que hay algo m s Quiz dos relecturas no sean suficientes porque descubrir el universo de Garc a M rquez nos exige siempre m s, nos obliga a volver Y en la terquedad, y en la esperanza y en la paciencia tal y como la del Coronel encontramos el significado real, viendo m s all de lo evidente Adem s, volver a Gabo es una experiencia nica Siendo uno de mis escritorios favoritos, intento releer alguna de sus obras por lo menos una vez al a o porque es como volver a casa, encontrando el camino de las palabras, con el calor opresor del Caribe, con esa sabidur a directa sobre el amor, entre calles polvorientas en las que pueblos aparentemente olvidados, representan los tes y deseos de la humanidad.
