LA REAL ACADEMIA ESPAÑOLA Y LA ASOCIACIÓN DE ACADEMIAS DE LA LENGUA ESPAÑOLA PRESENTAN

CIEN AÑOS DE SOLEDAD

UNA EDICIÓN POPULAR CONMEMORATIVA CUYO TEXTO HA REVISADO EL PROPIO GABRIEL GARCÍA MÁRQUEZ

La Asociación de Academias de la Lengua Española presentarán, en el marco del IV Congreso Internacional de la Lengua Española (Cartagena de Indias, 26 a 29 de marzo), una edición de Cien años de soledad revisada por el autor.

La edición popular del Quijote con la que la Real Academia Española y la Asociación de Academias han conmemorado, en el IV Centenario, la publicación de la primera parte, ha merecido una extraordinaria acogida en los dos años en que ha estado en circulación. Ello ha llevado a las Academias a proyectar una serie de ediciones conmemorativas ocasionales, y de circulación limitada, de los grandes clásicos hispánicos de todos los tiempos.

Al diseñar, junto con las demás Academias, el programa del IV Congreso Internacional de la Lengua Española, propuso la Academia Colombiana homenajear a Gabriel García Márquez, quien pocos días antes del Congreso cumplirá ochenta años, con una cuidada edición popular de Cien años de soledad, novela que, a lo largo de cuarenta años (1967-2007), millones de lectores han consagrado como obra literaria universal.

Al igual que en la reciente edición académica del Quijote, el interés prioritario del trabajo preparatorio se ha centrado en el texto de la novela. Para ello se han examinado todos los fragmentos publicados con anterioridad a la primera edición, y su cotejo con esta muestra con claridad el trabajo primoroso que García Márquez realiza hasta el último momento para dar con el término preciso, el mimo con que cuida la gramática, y su esfuerzo por lograr la expresión más rica en sugerencias.

A pesar del esmero con que el propio escritor corrigió las pruebas de la primera edición (Sudamericana, 1967), se deslizaron en ella indeseadas erratas y expresiones dudosas que editores sucesivos han tratado de resolver con mejor o peor fortuna. Un estudio comparativo detallado de cada caso ha permitido ahora presentar una propuesta razonada al propio autor, que ha querido revisar las pruebas de imprenta completas, enriqueciendo así esta edición con su trabajo de depuración y fijación del texto. En la sección "Nota al texto" podrá apreciar el lector la escrupulosa meticulosidad de García Márquez. Para facilitar la lectura y ayudar a la más rica comprensión de la escritura se ha preparado, en colaboración con la Academia Colombiana de la Lengua, un "Glosario" léxico de 55 páginas, que aclara el significado de los términos en su lugar preciso y ofrece noticia sobre personajes, acontecimientos y lugares. Con idéntico propósito se muestra un cuadro de la "Genealogía de los Buendía", que, en su momento, pensó incluir el autor.

En Cien años de soledad aparece ante nuestros ojos todo un mundo. Para preparar el acercamiento a él, abren la edición una breve semblanza de García Márquez escrita por Álvaro Mutis y una introducción de Carlos Fuentes que aporta testimonios personales esclarecedores sobre el nacimiento de la novela y el deslumbramiento inmediato que suscitó. El magistral análisis que Mario Vargas Llosa hizo de la narrativa de García Márquez sigue siendo la más alta referencia y de él se ofrece una parte central. Dos estudios, de Víctor García de la Concha y de Claudio Guillén -a quien la muerte sorprendió cuando le ponía punto final-, tratan de mostrar caminos concretos de acceso al texto de la novela.

Tras él, cuatro académicos hispanoamericanos -Pedro Luis Barcia (Argentina), Juan Gustavo Cobo Borda (Colombia), Gonzalo Celorio (México) y Sergio Ramírez (Nicaragua)- glosan distintos aspectos de la personalidad literaria de García Márquez y de lo que Cien años de soledad significó en la trayectoria de la novela hispánica y en su amplia difusión en el ámbito cultural.

La Asociación de Academias de la Lenguas presentará oficialmente su edición, en el marco del IV Congreso Internacional de la Lengua Española, en el homenaje a Gabriel García Márquez que se celebrará el 26 de marzo y en el que se entregará al autor el primer ejemplar.

Paralelamente, todas las Academias promoverán presentaciones de la edición en sus respectivos países con el propósito común de difundir la obra en todo mundo hispanohablante.

La edición académica, publicada con un propósito conmemorativo, tendrá un período de distribución limitado a 3 años. Se trata de un volumen de 756 páginas, con una tirada inicial de 500 000 ejemplares.

Editorial Reviews

Criticas

In conjunction with Santillana, the Real Academia Española (RAE) and the Asociación de Academias de la Lengua Española have published this commemorative edition of the contemporary classic to mark its 40th anniversary, García Márquez’s 80th birthday, and the 25th anniversary of the author’s receiving the Nobel prize. Much like the 2004 celebratory edition of Don Quijote de la Mancha (RAE & Santillana; Críticas , 11/04), this publication includes an author profile by Álvaro Mutis, an introduction by Carlos Fuentes, and critical essays by Mario Vargas Llosa, Víctor García de la Concha, and Claudio Guillén. Four renowned academics look further into the influence of this masterpiece on Spanish-language literature, thus emphasizing its importance. The novel itself was slightly modified: several grammar mistakes have been corrected, some cacophonies were eliminated, and pronouns were added to emphasize certain phrases. This affordable hardcover edition, which includes a comprehensive glossary and a genealogical map of the legendary Buendía family, simply reconfirms this as the most important Latin American novel of the 20th century. Already a best seller, this is an essential edition for all libraries and bookstores.

Meet the Author

Gabriel García Márquez
Gabriel García Márquez
A chief practitioner of the "magic-realist" style, Gabriel García Márquez's influence and importance lie in his crucial role of bringing Latin-American fiction to wider audiences while pioneering it at the same time. The Colombian-born Nobel winner tells fantastical tales of romance and heroism against an historic Latin American backdrop, always infusing believability by giving his writing a journalistic cast.

Biography

Gabriel García Márquez is the product of his family and his nation. Born in the small coastal town of Aracataca in northern Colombia, he was raised by his maternal grandparents. As a child, he was mesmerized by stories spun by his grandmother and her sisters -- a rich gumbo of superstitions, folk tales, and ghost stories that fired his youthful imagination. And from his grandfather, a colonel in Colombia's devastating Civil War, he learned about his country's political struggles. This potent mix of Liberal politics, family lore, and regional mythology formed the framework for his magical realist novels.

When his grandfather died, García Márquez was sent to Sucre to live (for the first time) with his parents. He attended university in Bogotá, where he studied law in accordance with his parents' wishes. It was here that he first read The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka and discovered a literature he understood intuitively -- one with nontraditional plots and structures, just like the stories he had known all his life. His studies were interrupted when the university was closed, and he moved back north, intending to pursue both writing and law; but before long, he quit school to pursue a career in journalism.

In 1954 his newspaper sent García Márquez on assignment to Italy, marking the start of a lifelong self-imposed exile from the horrors of Colombian politics that took him to Barcelona, Paris, New York, and Mexico. Influenced by American novelist William Faulkner, creator of the fictionalized Yoknapatawpha County, and by the powerful intergenerational tragedies of the Greek dramatist Sophocles, García Márquez began writing fiction, honing a signature blend of fantasy and reality that culminated in the 1967 masterpiece One Hundred Years of Solitude. This sweeping epic became an instant classic and set the stage for more bestselling novels, including Love in the Time of Cholera, Love and Other Demons, and Memories of My Melancholy Whores. In addition, he has completed the first volume of a shelf-bending memoir, and his journalism and nonfiction essays have been collected into several anthologies.

In 1982, García Márquez was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. In his acceptance speech, he called for a "sweeping utopia of life, where no one will be able to decide for others how they die, where love will prove true and happiness be possible, and where the races condemned to one hundred years of solitude will have, at last and forever, a second opportunity on earth." Few writers have pursued that utopia with more passion and vigor than this towering 20th-century novelist.

Good To Know

Gabriel José García Márquez' affectionate nickname is Gabo.

García Márquez' first two novellas were completed long before their actual release dates, but might not have been published if it weren't for his friends, who found the manuscripts in a desk drawer and a suitcase, and sent them in for publication.

    The history of the world in less than 500 pages.

    This book is all about universality. I read it in Spanish, and I could not stop reading. I can see why this book has so much recognition, and why Marquez was compared to Miguel de Cervantes...he is an amazing writer. The book begins with the establishment of a new village named Macondo. The book is about the cycle of history. I can say much more than this (belive me, I can write a book on just this one book), but I might get carried away. All I have to say is, if you have not read One Hundred Years of Solitude, you have not read any powerful literature. Go get it...NOW!
