With its juxtaposition of ordinary details and extraordinary events, his short story "The Handsomest Drowned Man in the World" is an example of the style for which García Márquez is famous: magic realism. Summary In the story, the body of a drowned man washes up in a small, remote town by the ocean.

In the story “The Handsomest Drowned Man in the World”, Esteban made everyone so shocked by how amazing he was, they changed their lives forever in his name, while in the story “A Very Old Man With Enormous Wings: A Tale for Children” the main character was seen as such a weird creature that people were actually paying just to be able to get a closer look at him.

This shows that the oiler has faith and is optimistic about many things, especially when things are at their worst, while his companions are not. Sadly, even though the oiler seems like an amazing person who deserved to live, he sadly dies. In the end of the story the author creates the picturesque scene where people are coming to save the survivors with open arms and coffee pots, only to remind the reader that oiler’s lifeless body is being dragged away.
Sergei’s said to the gold fish “ he wanted to take you from me.” (Keret 6). “ Nonsense” (keret 6) the fish says.

Sergei didn’t even know the young boy so he was thinking to himself why should he use his last wish on someone he barely knew.
