Chronicle of a Death Foretold

             Based on Garcia Marquez's novel Chronicle of A Death Foretold I would conclude that Marquez is a man very interested in how things come to be, how the events leading up to a single moment all work together to form one final product. If I were to discuss the assasination of J.F.K. with him I would not be surprised if he was curious about the events of the President's life starting a week prior th the fatal event. He would want to dnow how he ended up in that situation. He would want to know what the motive was and how the killer came about these feelings. Could such an act be justified if it were taken out in the name of honor. Marquez feels strongly about upholdin one's honor. If Marques and I were at dinner, I would imagine that at this point our food would come. If someone began to say grace I know he would have something to say about it. Ge has a very strange way of looking at religion. If his writings reflect in any way the manner in which Marquez thinks than the reader can learn a lot about him from this novel.
             The story begins with Marquez giving away the ending. A man by the name of Santiago Nasar has been killed. He tells this to us because to Marquez this is not the most important event. Marquez is also quick to reveal who killed him. To Marquez the importance lies in how the whole thing came to be. He wants the reader to understand how the relationship between the Bicario boys and Nasar developed. Marquez doesn't simply state that the twins are going to kill Nasar because he took ther daughter's virginity. Marquez shows how values have a lot of meaning in the town and that the killing was an attempt to save the family's honor.
             This honor means a great deal to Marquez. First of all having his characters kill inits name shows that it is above even life. The town that the story takes place in is a reflection of Marquez's feelings about one's honor. After the killing has taken place it is a well known fact who committed the crime.
