Product Description

According to the author, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, The Autumn of the Patriarch is a “poem on the solitude of power”. The book is about the life of an eternal dictator. It is divided into six sections and discusses the limitless power of the Caribbean tormenter. The story is ultimately about the disaster that strikes when boundless power is given to a single man.

One of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's most intricate and ambitious works, The Autumn of the Patriarch is a brilliant tale of a Caribbean tyrant and the corruption of power.

From charity to deceit, benevolence to violence, fear of God to extreme cruelty, the dictator of The Autumn of the Patriarch embodies the best but also the worst of human nature. Gabriel Garcia Marquez, the renowned master of magical realism, vividly portrays the dying tyrant caught in the prison of his own dictatorship. Employing an innovative, dreamlike style, and overflowing with symbolic descriptions, the novel transports the reader to a world that is at once fanciful and vividly real.
