Gabriel Garcia Marquez, The Solitude of Latin America (1982) Click for more options
Suggestions for specific ‘interpretative frameworks’ include:
Who was Arbenz/García Márquez? Why did he write this document? What impact did he want to have?
Historical context of Arbenz’s leadership and US involvement in Guatemala?
Contextual information about any of the events/places that García Márquez eluded to in his speech?
Connections between the speech and García Márquez’s literary style e.g. magical realism?
Does the source provide evidence of a connection between politics and culture/society?
Does the source provide evidence of resistance to Western imperialism?
Remember, these are just suggestions. They all require specific reading and specific evidence to support your argument. The clearer you make your argument, from the very outset of your paper, the more likely you will be able to achieve high grades.
