World reacts to death of Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Question of the Day
Reaction to death of writer Gabriel Garcia Marquez:
“A thousand years of loneliness and sadness for the death of the greatest Colombian of all time!” - Colombia President Juan Manuel Santos.
“With the passing of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, the world has lost one of its greatest visionary writers - and one of my favorites from the time I was young … I offer my thoughts to his family and friends, whom I hope take solace in the fact that Gabo’s work will live on for generations to come.” - U.S. President Barack Obama.
“A great man has died, one whose works gave the literature of our language great reach and prestige,” Peruvian author Mario Vargas Llosa, who had once famously feuded with Garcia Marquez.
“I owe him the impulse and the freedom to plunge into literature. In his books I found my own family, my country, the people I have known all my life, the color, the rhythm, and the abundance of my continent.” - Chilean writer Isabel Allende
“One would really have to go back to Dickens to find a writer of the highest literary quality who commanded such extraordinary power over whole populations.” - British novelist Ian McEwan, to the BBC.
“From the time I read ‘One Hundred Years of Solitude’ more than 40 years ago, I was always amazed by his unique gifts of imagination, clarity of thought, and emotional honesty … I was honored to be his friend and to know his great heart and brilliant mind for more than 20 years.” - former U.S. President Bill Clinton.
