About This Item: 
García Márquez ha declarado una y otra vez que El otoño del patriarca es la novela en la que más trabajo y esfuerzo invirtió. En efecto, García Márquez construyó aquí una maquinaria narrativa perfecta que desgrana una historia universal --la agonía y muerte de un dictador-- en forma cíclica, experimental y real al mismo tiempo, repitiendo una anécdota siempre igual y siempre distinta, acumulando hechos y descripciones deslumbrantes. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION One of Gabriel García Márquez's most intricate and ambitious works, The Autumn of the Patriarch is a brilliant tale of a Caribbean tyrant and the corruption of power.From charity to deceit, benevolence to violence, fear of God to extreme cruelty, the dictator of The Autumn of the Patriarch embodies the best and the worst of human nature. Gabriel García Márquez, the renowned master of magical realism, vividly portrays the dying tyrant caught in the prison of his own dictator-ship. Employing an innovative, dreamlike style, and overflowing with symbolic descriptions, the novel transports the reader to a world that is at once fanciful and real.
