  • Magical Realism In 'A Very Old Man With Enormous Wings'

    (Shmoop Editorial Team). So some people, like the priest, are very skeptical of the old man. He begins to test him by speaking to him in Latin. When the old man doesn’t respond, he finds it very hard to believe that an angel of god wouldn’t understand god’s language. So the priest “sends a letter to the bishop, who sends a letter to his primate, so that a letter would be sent to the Supreme Pontiff to get a decision from the highest possible court” (Marquez 1376-1377). The actions of many characters, especially Pelayo and Elisenda, the husband and wife in the story show a huge part of why this story is classified as Magical Realism. The story begins with Pelayo and Elisenda killing crabs in their house, and removing them because the stench is making their child sick. When Pelayo takes the crabs to the back of their courtyard, he discovers a man with enormous wings sunken in the mud. He was so surprised that he went and got his wife to show her this man lying in the mud of their back yard. Neither of them freak out, which is what any normal person should do if a winged man is discovered in their back yard. No government officials were called, no one tried to attack and kills the man. The husband and wife went to their neighbor for a second opinion on the matter. The neighbor nonchalantly said “He’s an angel. He must have been coming for the child (who was extremely sick), but the poor fellow is so old that the rain knocked him down” (Marquez 1376). The husband watched over…
