Description:

This paper discusses the two books Pedro Paramo by Juan Rulfo, and Chronicle of a Death Foretold by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, how both main characters, the narrator and Juan, search for answers of things that happened in the past. The author examines how both literary works are bound together by secrets of the past and hope of answers that will satisfy the questions that have plagued Juan and the narrator.

From the Paper:

"In the two books Pedro Paramo and Chronicle of a Death Foretold, both main characters are searching for answers of things in the past. Through the nature of the main event, the character?s connection to the main event, and the style of each author?s writing, it is obviously shown that they are searching the past for answers. Both authors make every single point to allude to that idea. It all starts with two simple quotes: 'They?ve already killed him' and 'Pedro Paramo died years ago'."
