Funeral and The Tale of Innocent Erendira and Her Heartless Grandmother Respectively each of these collections were originally published n No One Writes to the Colonel and Other Stories Leaf Storm and Other Stories and Innocent Erendira and Other Stories and I believe the difference between Funeral initial published collections and this compilations that this text doesn t Pocket Edinburgh include the title novellas save for Innocent Erendira Spanning work from 1947 to 1972 the first two stories of this compilation from Eyes of a Blue Dog are preoccupied with death Though highly abstract and at the same time visceral the details twitch and flitter making the skin crawl Death elicits unease yet this macabre obsession shows hints toward a writer s meager canvas The characters embody smallness

these were huge Adoption Reunion Survival Guide influences on his writing Andt seems he was always writing This Hty is my first stepnto M ruez I will follow him Creativity And Academic Activism in mostly a chronological manner and this collectionncludes some of his earliest published work The first story Collected here are twenty six of Gabriel Garcia Maruez's most brilliant and enchanting short stories presented The Wind In The Willows in the chronological order of their publicationn Spanish from thre. .
He Third Resignation was published Evergreen in 1947 when M ruez was 20 years old What this collection offersn an evolution Art School Propositions For The 21st Century in the writing of talented and creative story tellerEyes of a Blue Dog the first collections weakest and yet the one I find I have the most to say about because of how his writing changes from story to story Several things are notable about the earliest stories The Third Resignation The Other Side of Death and Eva 4 isnside her cat They have striking opening lines with words like sharp and phrases like cold cutting vertical noise they are psychoanalytical dea heavy and rather dull to read leaving this reader nterested but counting pages till the end The Other Side of Death ends Batman 1 in the other world the mistaken and absurd world of rational creatures A phrase thats maybe revealing as to where M ruez was headed These stories all have very different approaches and strengths In the title story a man has an Canons And Contexts intimate conversations with a womann his dreams one he can see but can t touch and who he completely forgets as soon as he wakes even as she keeps telling him how to find her It s an exploration of desire and relationships It s a good story but most notable because of different way to approaching what he Beyond The Dance is exploring Whereas the most compelling story for me the first one where I forgot to count the pages was straight forward Titled The Woman Who Came at Six O Clockt s only a conversation a flirtatious and manipulative one between between a woman and a bar tender Behemoth Konkwistadorzy Diaba in an empty bar There are five stories after that and I would say each ones just a much better story much readable then the earlier ones but still very Shira imaginative Andn each story Chung Hyo Ye it seems he s getting closer to homeEvery storyn Big Mama s Funeral Ms Thang is well developed One might say a maturing author developingnto mastering his abilities The stories are starting to feel like pieces of a larger worlds like M ruez Nelsons Mediterranean Command is just giving us a window and that he could keep going on and I wouldn t have minded Most of these stories are very much his worldn small town coastal Columbia n Aracataca which gets mentioned n the last story the title story Characters reoccur the tone changes and there Delilah is a heavyf dark or darkly tinted humor In the title story the tone Venus Equilateral is hyper formal and for the third timen twenty centuries there was an hour of confusion chagrin and bustle The Anthropology Of Utopia in the limitless empire of Christendom The author of The Incredible and Sad Tale of Innocent Erendira and Her Heartless Grandmothers not experimenting so much as making his points through story telling In the opening story A Very Old Man With Enormous Wings an angel falls The Academic Job Search Handbook into a town and becomes something like a zoo attraction He doesn t speak and doesn tnteract with anyone just stoically bides his time until his wings heal and he wordlessly flies off What s M ruez saying The main sense n all these stories Kissing The Hag The Dark Goddess And The Unacceptable Nature Of Women is of a fairy tale but with all the dark elements with wonderful characters usually leaving us with a sense of how small they aren a strange wider world they will never understand When the outside world comes La Inquietud Del Rosal it seems everyone always ends up losing something to them and when they branch out the characters just disappear Several of these are really uote terrific and they all leave something to think about evenf A Slip Of The Keyboard it seems mostly through the authors restraint He just has a way of writing up strange or fantastic eventsn the same flat fairy tale tone and t leaves the reader wondering So a fun a collection and a good start for my tour through his work The bestest short stories from Maruez Some just 5

fortitude to deal with hismaginative genius Magical realism may not be my thing and my expectations on reading from this were unrealistic having read and loved A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings a few years ago my mistake was to assume the entire three collections n one volume collection would be just as simple and delightful Perhaps Garc a M ruez or his stories at least should not be read so casually2 Maybe Gabriel Garc a M ruez sn t so great I mean maybe his stories aren t so great I mean maybe his earlier work written when he was much younger sn t nearly as good as his later stories and
