El amor en los tiempos del cóleraS at last and Florentino purposefully attends the funeral Fifty years nine months and four days after he first declared his love for Fermina he will do so agai This review is now also available at The Bombay Literary Magazine TBLM The Infinite Capacity for Illusion The words I am about to expressThey now have their own crowned goddess THE INFINITE CAPACITY FOR ILLUSION Whither The Magic One Hundred Years of Solitude is one of my favorite novels Which is why when I started reading Love in the Time of Cholera one of the things I noticed immediately was the lack of the subtle brand of magic that I had so enjoyed I missed it and was on the lookout for it I wanted it badly and went around every corner with the expectation of a cheerful reunion But it was not to beAs Pynchon says the “reality” of love and the possibility of its ultimate extinction become Love’s “indispensable driving forces” whereas magic in all its guises and forms becomes peripheralized or “at least thoughtfully deployed in the service of an expanded vision matured darker than before but no less clement” Why this marginalization of the extraordinary Why this deliberate move towards realism Why no MagicI kept asking myself this as I read and beyond Was I to understand that it is because Love in itself is Magic That was too cheesy even for Máruez who never shies from telling me a cheesy sub story if it needs to be toldOr is it because Love in the Time of Cholera is to seen as the product of a experienced author who no longer needs the resources of magic realism and hyperbole to surprise the readerOne thing was sure Love in the Time of Cholera is not only about Love even when it pervades every page Indeed it covers through its characters’ wide amorous and business interests an entire era and all the social classes spanning over fifty years of Latin American life from the last decades of the nineteenth century to the first two or three of the twentieth Love in the Time of Cholera while on a much smaller scale than One Hundred Years of Solitude deals with the Colombian civil wars of this period and the violence left in its wake Máruez however wants these historical and political concerns to be passed largely unnoticed by the reader While One Hundred Years of Solitude disguises the political themes through the uses of myth fantasy hyperbole and magic realism Love in the Time of Cholera disguises them through its depiction of an eternal sometimes exasperating almost unrealistic love affair one which flouts the conventions of every love story the reader might have come across Love in the Time of Cholera is often uite bleak due to this veering towards stark Realism to this occasional historical invasion of the narrative Much of this realism arises from Death and Decay the central themes of the novel However Máruez does not completely give up on Idealism either In fact he is neither an Idealistic or a Realistic author he is just a supremely elouent voice speaking from the vantage point of his own old age and wisdomTo me Love in the Time of Cholera is a magnificently gloomy novel though Máruez’s masterful sorcery masks it well with his verbal cascades of descriptions and his narrative’s seductivenessMáruez’s novels are almost invariably gloomy They are apocalyptic They are decadence distilled Then why the popularity Why do we love them Why are we uplifted Is it because of Máruez’s enthusiastic exuberance I think it is because of the uixotic Heroism of the people who populate these doomed worldsIt is this heroism that veils the Apocalyptic forebodings that pack so densely like storm clouds throughout the firmament his novelsAfter all Consider how during the entire time he waits to talk to Fermina again fifty one years nine months and four days Florentine Ariza is dauntless and never ever gives up even the slightest sliver of hope Nothing could shake this man “And how long do you think we can keep up this goddamn coming and going” he askedFlorentino Ariza had kept his answer ready for fifty three years seven months and eleven days and nights“Forever” he said The Heart of Darkness Death Decay There is so much I would like to say about this amazing novel There are so many themes that could be explored But in this review I will try to focus on the Beginning and the Ending of this intricately structured novel and try to tease out the the thread that explains the absence of Magic The whole novel is too broad a canvas to be explored in a review For this I limit myself to the broad themes of Death Decay Redemption and allow the political ecological societal and personal aspects of these themes to play themselves out below the current so to speakThe Institutions of Love Inventing Love He was aware that he did not love her He had married her because he liked her haughtiness her seriousness her strength and also because of some vanity on his part but as she kissed him for the first time he was sure there would be no obstacle to their inventing true love They did not speak of it that first night when they spoke of everything until dawn nor would they ever speak of it But in the long run neither of them had made a mistake The theme of Juvenal’s love story is about the incompatibility of love and social convention the conflict between desire and social life It is uite easily the crucial conundrum the novel wants to solve the 'other' to the novel's essence Security order happiness can these when added together in the right proportions provide an euation for Love For the sort of Love that can stop the decay that seems to have beset the entire world Apparently not It is not enoughThrough Juvenal’s invented Love Máruez is not simply criticizing the institution of marriage instead he is criticizing the very illusion that allows this the illusion that the world and the worldly goods and pleasures can produce Love Instead Máruez wants to show that it is Love that can create or recreate the worldUltimately Love is love of Love itself not merely the desire for its actual attainment or even the act of its fulfillment Passion is its own objectPitted against such an impossible ideal all convention or institutionalization obstructs love’s ultimate goal which is to forestall death and decayThe ultimate goal of Love is to save the world to create it anewGerontophobia Ecocide Destroying LoveSo why is this world so much in need of savingThe cosmic decline in Love seems to be the cause for alarm the cause for the pervasive decay that invades the world of the novelEverything in this novel from the environment to the city to the rebels to the civil wars to the people to the pets are ancient as if they were part of this earth from the very beginning but everybody is in the throes of love And everything ancient is also decaying sliding slowly towards the final end of death so is the sadness and the conventional love represented by JuvenalBut it is not just about the human lives Máruez writes as much about places as about people This one is also about the death of a river of a town of a society or murder rather Of Nature’s Old Age inflicted prematurely by youthful humanityThis is the ecological sub theme of the novel It is the river finally the Great Magdalena in Spanish the “ river of life” that highlights this for us The abundant nature that surrounds the town is caught in a process of irreversible decay Alligators manatees monkeys and birds disappear from the jungle; toward the end the riverboats have difficulty finding enough wood for their boilers While the political urgency of this topic is clear cosmic decline in Love in the Time of Cholera has a different meaning and is linked to the theme of the interruption of love discussed beforeParalleling the old age of his characters with the decay envisioned by this ecological wasteland of their own making Máruez is pointing out to us the true nature of Decay of Humans and their self inflicted sufferings bringing the decay of old age upon themselves and upon the whole of natureThis is the central tenet of the novel Love in the Time of DecayHowever there is And Máruez is not afraid to set this counter theme out in the very opening scene itself The Sweet Smell of Bitter Almonds Counter to the dark theme of decay that is to be developed for most of the rest of the plot early in the novel an act of brave revolt against this inevitability establishes the counter current against the steady march of decay Jérémiah de Saint Amour soon forgotten and never again mentioned takes this revolutionary step again drawing our attention the continuous revolution in which the political life of the novel is set by choosing to die before decay sets in This act initiates the long debate that runs throughout the novel about Love and its objective are we to preserve Love at the expense of Life or to preserve Life through Love By raising this uestion so early by calculating his suicide long beforehand by choosing to end the world than to let it go to rot to see it rot Saint Amour stays alive through the rest of the novel haunting it Being a witness to the decay of love was the most unbearable to Saint Amour the Saint of LoveWhat we see dramatized at the end of the book however is the possibility of genuine passion and romance in old age There is a clear contrast between Saint Amour’s suicide and the protracted love life of Florentino Ariza but it is a contrast that conceals a profound affinity Saint Amour kills himself to preserve his body from decay to fix its image as it were through deathLove and decay then constitute the double focus of this novel the former being present in countless ways throughout Love in The Time of Cholera The Post Apocalyptic Paradise his mother was terrified because his condition did not resemble the turmoil of love so much as the devastation of cholera Every page of this novel is rammed full of love beyond the capacity of any reader to fully comprehend Love is in the air like Malaria; and in the water like Cholera its infections are inescapableAll aspects of love are covered in exuisite detail from teenage love to old age; from sexual to rapine to platonic; from formal courtship to marital to unconsummated; to unreuited love to the excesses of suicide and adultery; from the mundane normalcy of love to the incestuous abnormalitiesThe reader has to consider carefully in the midst of this overwhelming abundance and variety the treatment that Máruez gives to love in this novel Love in the novel is not the purely romantic love carefree easy flowing spontaneous and idealizedInstead the novel’s great affirmation of romance is in the face not just of a hostile or prosaic world but of the darker side of romance itselfIt is Operatic uixotic Dionysian Love that is celebrated It is Love as the Second Coming Sailing The River of Love The Voyage of Re Birth Youth Love Old Age Death The Four Unknowns This should have been the order of LifeHowever in this world of Máruez the only ages that can hope to be able lovelive seem to the Young and the Old In between lies the desert the only time we are allowed to live when not capable of love It is a paradox on which the very survival of this fictional universe seems to depend onLove and Life cannot coexist then The solution is to give up the life they know for Love To take the ultimate leap of faithSo hoist a yellow flag on the Ship of your Life Second Fidelity and sail on the Great Magdalena in Spanish the “ river of life” in a State of Emergency Let Love in the Time of Cholera be the entirety of the River of Life Love should now destroy that earlier Life instead just as Cholera can sueeze it out And then be reborn afreshThe novel ends with the central characters challenging their entire social world and the very conditions of their existence by their grand romantic gesture by their final and what seems like eternal trip on the Magdalena river This is the necessary reaction to the decay that is fast on the route to complete extinction to death Love and Cholera will both go extinct otherwise rooted out by Life Love is shown as the redeeming force that saves both humanity nature culture and history It appears as a divine force that defies everything As if in biblical terms the novel seems to assert that it is not yet too late to stop the end of humanity and to reach out for grace and happinessMost importantly never allow the Yellow Flag to be uestioned Sustain the ardor Maintain the symptoms of CholeraLove The pestilence is to be maintained at all costs Only then will the world let you sail onOf course the novel ends with the reader wondering if Fermina and Florentino will ever be able to come ashore and exercise their second chanceWe are left to uestion this act for ourselves How do we save the world By Escape into an Unrealistic Fantasy Or is love real The answer at least inside Máruez’s world is uite clearThis final triumph is exuisitely multi layered Fermina and Florentino will remain isolated from the real contagion of their earlier Life by allowing their Love to be disguised as Cholera They are not rejecting the world they are allowing the world to reject them insteadThe uarantine is really against love the sickness that society will not can not tolerate the sickness that society fear as much as a deadly epidemic the sickness that the society fears will wipe it outInstead it is that very sickness which is recognized by conventional society as its biggest scourge that saves the characters from extinction along with the manatees the alligators and the monkeysIt is Love that saves all in the end at least we are left to imagine that possibility Now in this Post Apocalyptic Paradise age is of no conseuence; Life has been transmuted and preserved by Love like Saint Amour’s Love by deathLife has been reborn in the Second Coming of LoveLove in short will always be in the time of cholera under the Yellow Flag’s protection THE INFINITE CAPACITY FOR ILLUSION The Will to Lyricism So now we can come back to the uestion we started with of the Absence of MagicIn One Hundred Years of Solitude the apocalypse came in spite of Magic in Love in the Time of Cholera redemption comes despite its absenceUnlike the death that starts off One Hundred Years of Solitude here that death the suicide is ultimately sublimated into love and decay is arrested in its unreality In fact reality has instead been reinvented in their own terms where previous reality was rejected outrightThe capacity for illusion is magic enough to save the world and our souls This Infinite Capacity for Illusion can bring on the reuired apocalypse and we can live as if the Kingdom of HeavenCholera was already here on earth under that banner of protectionOnly then can the Magic return
