At the articulation of G. G. Marquez’s name the term which immediately crosses the readers’ mind is magical realism. In his much acclaimed “Strange Pilgrims” Marquez perfectly embodies magical realism as a technique of revamping the marvelous into actual existence.

Marquez aptly shows his taste for magical realism, the perfect mélange of fantasy and hyperbole exhibited in a framework of reality, which pervades throughout the stories of “Strange Pilgrims”. His narration is so serious and

Not that it 's not true, but that it’s not organized linearly, which in fact may be more true than a story that was crafted in an organized fashion. When people tell stories they edit and spice to give the reader or listener a clean line of events. But life is not clean and orderly it is a mas confusion and chaotic mess. Therefore, the non-linear line here may in fact be more true than the “truth.” a war story should not be told neatly because it probably didnt fashion out that way.
