One Hundred Years of Solitude
- Shortly after the arrival of the train in chapter 11, a movie theater comes to Macondo. Oh, the fraud of Hollywood.
- Lonely for his chestnut tree, Jose Arcadio Buendia’s ghost returns.
- Banana research and a gringo invasion: what else is coming to Macondo.
- Why does the Buendia Family feed all the strangers that pour into the home?
- Remedios the Beauty really does try to discourage the attention of her followers but this only seems to make her more desirable. A man removes tiles from the bathroom roof to watch her bathe. Over and over she warns him that he will fall, and he does–to his death.
- It seems that Remedios the Beauty has powers of death. Is the amber-colored oil/scent she gives off really rotting whale?
- Sixteen of Col. a.B.’s sons are murdered during the course of a week. Only Aureliano Amador escapes into the mountains.
- Never again will a Buendia receive the imposition of ashes.
- Instead of sorrow over the loss of his sons, Col. Aurealiano feels rage.
