The autumn of the patriarch by Gabriel García Márquez( Book )

"Depuis trente ans, plusieurs grands romans latino-américains nous ont décrit par le menu, le monde hallucinant de la dictature à l'américaine : délation, exactions de tous ordres, assassinats, exterminations même, bestialité, cupidité, abus sexuels, protections étrangères, soif maladive de pouvoir que finalement la solitude transforme en frustration. Cette réalité tragique, nous la retrouvons tout au long de ce roman, mais sous la plume de Garcia Marquez elle prend une dimension burlesque incomparable. Le patriarche est ici un dictateur dans la grande tradition de l'Amérique Latine. C'est un vieux général qui a " entre 107 et 232 ans ". Tyran méfiant et délirant, les structures minables de son pays arriéré le vouent à des aventures cauchemardesques que l'imagination non moins délirante de Gabriel Garcia Marquez transforme en folles équipées drolatiques. Cocasserie, jaillissement incessant de trouvailles, ruissellements de mots qui brillent comme d'insolites pierres précieuses : on retrouve dans l'Automne du patriarche toute la magie de Cent ans de solitude

Deux frères éméchés vengent "l'honneur" de leur soeur en étripant le présumé coupable, Santiago Nasar, Arabe d'origine, bien intégré à la population de son île des Caraïbes.

Trois recueils de poèmes, dont la parution s'échelonne entre 1924 et 1952, et qui forment le livre d'une célébration nouvelle : l'amour y est toujours surprise, risque, désir, submersion, insurrection perpétuelle.

The mirror of Lida Sal : tales based on Mayan myths and Guatemalan legends by Miguel Angel Asturias( Book )
10 editions published between 1967 and 1987 in French and held by 71 libraries worldwide
"First English-language edition of El espejo de Lida Sal (see HLAS 30:3268), in which the Nobel laureate melds Mayan and Guatemalan myth and folklore in 10 stories whose hallucinatory prose challenges the reader. 'Everything unfolds in a land of natural dreamscapes ... The imagination reels.' Although lacking a table of contents and translator's note, the superb translation recommends the work for classroom use"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58

Sept nouvelles par l'auteur de ##Cent ans de solitude##, rédigées entre 1961 et 1972. Pour l'essentiel, on peut dire - avec Angelo Rinaldi - qu'il s'agit d'esquisses et de "chutes", d'artisanat préalable. "Sur de petits parcours, Marquez s'entraînait en vue" du grand livre plus haut cité
