Garcia Marquez uses biblical allusions, a varying syntax, and auditory imagery in this passage to express the theme that, regardless of its fairness, fate is unavoidable, so the only thing one can do it accept it. Garcia Marquez uses biblical allusions in this passage to compare Santiago Nasar to Jesus Christ and emphasize that he was fated to die for the sins of others. In the bible, Jesus is said to have died as punishment for the sins of humanity. Jesus’s death is alluded to in this passage and is compared to Santiago’s death at the hands of the Vicario brothers. For one, Jesus died through crucifixion, or by being nailed to a cross.

Margert Peller who examines Wise Blood as a "Christian commedia" points out that O.Connor's novel has many thematic parallels to the ancient drama . She describes it as humors and black comedy, Greek tragedy because it has the elements of the traditions of the romance and of grotesque (105) .
The use of magical realism in this passage by Garcia Marquez serves to shed light on the reunion between Angela Vicario and Bayardo San Roman. Bayardo showed up suddenly ”with almost two thousand letters that she has written him” (Garcia Marquez 95). The sheer amount of letters is a clear exaggeration that puts a more dramatic effect on the return of Bayardo. It also represents Angela’s determination and will to regain the trust of her husband even if the letters were clearly
William Golding was born September 19, 1911. He was mainly a novelist but his body of work also includes poetry, plays, essays, and short stories. Golding is from England, and the characters in his novel are British. His time in World War II and the Royal Navy gave him the impression that man produces evil. The outcome of his experiences in the war gave him the inspiration for his novel Lord of the Flies, which is full of symbolism and allows Golding to continue on with future work expressing internal struggle and good and evil.
Marianismo comes into play as it determines the roles of women and allows for the deflowering of Angela to play such a vital role in the events of Chronicle of a Death Foretold. Pura del Carmen Vicario is known to have frequently said "Any man will be happy with them because they 've been raised to suffer.” in reference to her daughters who in this sense were raised in such a way as to be the perfect wives and be instilled with the aspects of Marianismo (representation of feminine purity and morality as determined by the Vatican) despite what they may personally wish to do with themselves as individuals. Angela, however defies this idea initially by making no efforts to hide her virginity despite the assistance of her friends as they “had instructed her to get her husband drunk… turn out the light… give herself a drastic douche of alum water to fake virginity… stain the sheet with Mercurochrome”(53) only to realize the drastic consequences it would hold as she claimed her mother began “beating [her]... with such rage that [she] thought [her mother] was going to kill [her]” before demanding that she “tell us who it was” (28) in reference to herself and Angela’s brothers as she knew the next steps that must be taken to enforce the codes of honor on the
“Although Beowulf most likely began as a pagan epic it eventually expanded to include Christian elements, whereas Paradise Lost is definitely a Christian tale that uses classical allusions to remain connected to epic tradition” (Smith). The author of Beowulf is said to have been “a poet who used stray images and bits of Christian tradition in his action-fantasy without any serious religious purpose” (Cavill 16). Even though he wasn’t trying to make it a Christian poem, his writing ended up resembling that of Milton’s Paradise Lost in its biblical elements. The main similarity is that the plot in both poems have the same king/hero/evil structure. God and Hrothgar create a paradise for their kingdom, and each of them calls on a Savior, which in this case would be Christ or Beowulf, to defeat the evil (Satan/Grendel) trying to destroy it all.
The novel was out of the ordinary for the Victorian audience and religion was still important to them. I agree that Bram Stoker focused on aspects of Christianity and sexuality within Dracula. I was left with this interpretation upon reading the novel. There are countless instances in which Stoker incorporates Christian symbolism. The host is the most used literal object of
