Nov 13, 2020 · Rediscover: Love in the Time of Cholera Gabriel García Márquez's Love in the Time of Cholera makes for fitting reading in the time of coronavirus. Set in northern Colombia between 1875 and 1924, it tracks the lives of two lovers separated as teens, their divergent adult courses and a reunion in old age.
Love in the Time of Cholera As you might guess from the title, Gabriel García Márquez's novel Love in the Time of Cholera is at its heart a love story. But it isn't just a simple, straightforward...
In this paper, Garcia's novel "Love in the Time of Cholera" (1985) has been analyzed strictly on the basis of the concept of time it represents.

In Colombia just after the Great War, an old man falls from a ladder; dying, he professes great love for his wife. After the funeral, a man calls on the widow – she dismisses him angrily. Flash back more than 50 years to the day Florentino Ariza, a telegraph boy, falls in love with Fermina Daza, the daughter of a mule trader.
