Professor Ruben Pelayo's Video Project
Video I –narrated in Spanish with English subtitles-- is a succinct biography of Gabriel García Márquez intended to celebrate his unparalleled fame in all modern languages. The video stresses his identity, his journalist skill as chronicler, as a writer, and his often mistaken year of birth. The video conveys the idea of a writer who can also be seen as a husband, father, friend, and as a private man. Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1982, he is, undoubtedly, the most popular writer of the 20th Century in the Spanish Language.
Video II –narrated in Spanish with English subtitles-- is an insightful look at García Márquez's masterpiece One Hundred Years of Solitude. The video takes the viewer through the first short stories and novels that led to the making of this opus magnum with commentaries by world-wide known authors, and analogies with Sophocles, Kafka, and Faulkner. Intended for a world audience, this video presentation brings forward a broader school of Spanish criticism and a perceptive analysis of thematic issues often reduced in Anglo-speaking settings. The novel, according to Pelayo, is many present-day societies in the abstract.
