Chronicle of a Death Foretold
The text we are working to approve is Chronicle of a Death Foretold by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Here is a short synopsis: The narrative Chronicle of a Death Foretold by Gabriel Garcia Marquez follows the events surrounding of the death of Santiago Nasar. The reader learns of Santiago’s death at the beginning of the narrative, yet there is still mystery surrounding the reason of his death. Santiago is believed to have slept with Angela Vicario and as a result Angela is returned by Bayardo San Ramon on her wedding night. Set in a small Colombian town, Catholicism, gender expectations and traditions prevent the townspeople from warning Santiago of his impending death. Marquez brilliantly exemplifies the role of men and women, as well as the role of the collective group in this suspenseful novella.
