The paper delves into the mystifying world of Gabriel Garcia Marquez. The essay takes an introspective look at character interactions and focuses mainly on the ironies of wisdom and solitude as they relate to the characters within the novel. The essay investigates the outward quest for knowledge in contrast with the inner turmoil such wisdom incites.

From the Paper:

"One Hundred Years of Solitude artfully evaluates the human id-the unbridled force capable of ensnaring individuals in a tedious condition of chaos and seclusion. Though Gabriel Garcia Marquez denies bias in regards to public morality, he successfully unveils the trials of conscience which ultimately leave each character in a state of isolation, agitation, and self-castigation. Marquez exposes a reality uninhibited by intrinsic knowledge; a world caught in the throes of carnal yearning. In Marquez's world, the coincidence of self awareness and even paramount wisdom fail to augment the character's lives as long as they remain fixed to the collective conscience of society."
