A controversial writer of the marginal realism era by the name Gabriel Garcia Marquez in the Death Constant Beyond Love applies the use symbolism where he gives a description of a rose (Zamora, & Faris, 1995). However, the majority of the people who usually reads Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s work always argues that they always have a hard time in trying to understand some of the images and descriptions within his works (Zamora, & Faris, 1995). Moreover, for an individual who is a newbie in reading this piece will find hardship in getting a firm grip on the underlying and fundamental concepts in the use of a rose to represent and describe something else that has a great magnitude (Robinson, 2013). Therefore the helpful person is the one who is a seasonal reader and who loves literature gain insight into the target point (Zamora, & Faris, 1995).
Gabriel Garcia Marquez sought to select the plight of a senator who was looking another term in his previous office by the use a rose symbol. However, issues such as inability, misery, and seclusion together with death are more likely to be covered by the author within this description (Robinson, 2013). Moreover “illusory village” is another complicated description which plays a role of the inlet on the desert together with a hidden area for the ships of smugglers (Zamora, & Faris, 1995). Considering the Robinson of the world literature (2013), the death of Senator Onesimo who was just having six months and even days to live could be signified by interpreting the symbolic use of a rose.
However, in his perspective just as the rose withers and dries up which is inevitable, then the senator also had to meet his death (Robinson, 2013). Therefore the common consequence relates to a person who is living with reducing hopes and motivation within his life. That is an individual who is desperate and has no more future (Zamora, & Faris, 1995).
