Chapter 14

  • Meme finishes her musical studies.
  • When did Fernanda start corresponding with invisible doctors?  I missed something.
  • Amaranta’s not only sewing her own shroud by Death’s orders, but she’s made one for Rebeca too.
  • Since Death has told Amaranta exactly when she’s going to die, Amaranta offers to take mail to the townspeople’s deceased.
  • Seemingly healthy Amaranta lies on her death-bed and requests a mirror.  Do you remember when Madame Bovary asked for a mirror after receiving last rites?
  • Meme’s up to something with the yellow butterfly man.  Something that requires secret meetings, the advice of Pilar Ternera, and mustard plasters.
  • Fernanda puts together the pieces.  The mayor’s guard is set to catch a chicken thief and instead shoots the Butterfly Man in the back as he creeps into the bathroom “where Meme was waiting for him, naked and trembling with love among the scorpions and butterflies as she had done almost every night for the past few months.”  Senior Garcia Marquez paints a striking image with these words.
