"Gabriel Garcia Marquez's "Chronicle of a Death Foretold" is told in first person narrative by a journalist figure who returns to a Colombian town years after the death of Santiago Nasar. The novel begins with two misunderstandings of Santiago's final dream. Santiago's mother provides one and the other is provided by Santiago himself. These misinterpretations are significant because the narrator will hear many misinterpreted stories of the events that unfolded nearly three decades before and since."
