Chronicle Of A Death Foretold is a novella, first published in 1981, that speaks about the mysterious death of a young man, and chronologically retraces the situations that led to this baffling murder.
Summary Of The Book
Chronicle Of A Death Foretold commences on the deceptively harmless morning of the day when Santiago Nasar was murdered. The story then retraces backwards, introducing Angela Vicario and Bayardo San Roman, a couple about to get married. It is then disclosed, that on their wedding night, Roman discovers that Angela is not a virgin and returns her to her maiden house. Upon investigating, Angela’s twin brothers discover that Santiago Nasar is the man responsible for this disgraceful situation, and they set out to kill him.
The day Nasar dies is the same day the Bishop comes to town to bless the newly wedded couple. In the chaos and excitement that accompany the anticipation of the Bishop’s arrival, a series of unheeded warnings and events unfold that ultimately lead to the Vicario brothers stabbing Nasar on his front door.
The Vicario family leaves town, and the brothers are ultimately imprisoned for three years. Angela, who realized that she had fallen in love with Roman the night he returned her home, decides to write him letters every week.
Chronicle Of A Death Foretold was adapted into a Spanish film in 1987, and was later adapted into a Broadway musical in 1995.
