Magical realism and things

GGM’s Nobel Prize lecture. One of the things it says its that Lat Am needs a literature as fabulous as its history. It also says the solitude of 100 años is Europe’s lack of solidarity and comprehension. It is an odd discourse overall.

Gerald Martin: MR is an ideological strategem to collapse many kinds of writing, and many political perspectives, to one, usually escapist concept. See his “On ‘Magical’ and Social Realism in Garcia Marquez.” McGuirk and Cardwell 95-116, and I would like to have access to the McGuirk book. I’ll ILL it.

Also, I must read this Siskind piece even if in protest against his being I do not quote or cite it.
