This paper discusses Gabriel Garcia Marquez's novel titled "One Hundred Years of Solitude". The paper claims that this book is recognized as a modern classic with an insightful and relevant message.

The paper does this by focusing on the events of the novel, the meaning of the novel and the final message.

From the Paper:

"One Hundred Years of Solitude cannot be understood by analyzing the plot. Its style and structure is not driven by plot like many novels. Instead, it takes a wider approach and focuses on the life of a family and a town. It can be considered as the story of the town Macondo. It can also be considered as the story of the people who founded the town, the Buendias. The novel begins with the formation of town, as Jose Arcadio and Ursula found the town. The town continues to grow and remains largely isolated from the outside world. Later, the town comes into contact with others in the region. This leads to civil war and the once peaceful town is forced to change. Colonel Buendia becomes leader and war continues. The civil war eventually ends and a peace treaty is signed. Different problems reach the town as a banana plantation is established. "
