Editor, Harold Bloom cites the literary origins of Gabriel Garcia Marquez as Faulkner, crossed by Kafka. A Colombian writer and Nobel Prize winner, Marquez is best known for his novels One Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera. In an all-new, updated edition, Bloom's Modern Critical Views presents a balanced portrait of the author and journalist through an examination of his work. Essays gleaned from a cross-section of literary publications reveal critical interpretations, and a Marquez chronology, bibliography, and index, plus perceptive comments by editor, Harold Bloom complete this thoughtfully prepared resource.

About the author (2007)

Harold Bloom was born on July 11, 1930 in New York City. He earned his Bachelor of Arts from Cornell in 1951 and his Doctorate from Yale in 1955. After graduating from Yale, Bloom remained there as a teacher, and was made Sterling Professor of Humanities in 1983. Bloom's theories have changed the way that critics think of literary tradition and has also focused his attentions on history and the Bible. He has written over twenty books and edited countless others. He is one of the most famous critics in the world and considered an expert in many fields. In 2010 he became a founding patron of Ralston College, a new institution in Savannah, Georgia, that focuses on primary texts. His works include Fallen Angels, Till I End My Song: A Gathering of Last Poems, Anatomy of Influence: Literature as a Way of Life and The Shadow of a Great Rock: A Literary Appreciation of The King James Bible.
