El Amor En Los Tiempos Del Colera / Love in (Paperback) by Marquez Gabriel Garcia
About this item
Gabriel Garcia Marquez's fanciful and lush novel is a romantic epic about love in its many guises, the clash of romanticism and rationalism, and the terrible agony of love sickness. At the apex of the novel's love triangle is Fermina Daza, who rejects her young lover Florentino Ariza, and marries the practical doctor Juvenal Urbino. While she lives a respectable and moral married life, Arize's passion for her is undiminished--despite his conquest of 622 other women. After 53 years, Urbino dies, and their love and life together begins again. The novel was adapted into a film in 2007 starring Javier Bardem as the love-smitten Ariza.
The story of a fantastic wedding, the return of the bride to her parents in disgrace, her brothers' resolve to seek revenge on her corruptor, and the townspeoples' refusal to depart from routine.
