It is cherished because it is "a town unknown to the dead," Ibid: Macondo is the city of 'mirrors' or 'mirages. Again, at the time of the destruction of the city, it is called "the city of mirrors or mirages " Ibid: These two images suggest a twofold metaphor. First, because of its fictional, imaginary essence and its doomed life, Macondo is a city of mirages.
On the other hand, it is also a city of mirrors since it reflects the deep feelings and emotions of its inhabitants and is affected by them.
It is a "space of human soul. Colonel Aureliano Buendia after many years of war, "Alone, abandoned by his premonitions, fleeing the chill that was to accompany him until death,. This intimate shelter-like space for solitary figures creates a state of isolation or solitude for the city.
Macondo is found to be a city which is surrounded by water Ibid: It suffers from isolation in the beginning and in the end.
The story ends when the city has become unknown and "forgotten even by the birds, where the dust and the heat had become so strong that it was difficult to breathe.. The image that reinforces the solitude of the city is the recurrent motif of rain. A soft Poetization of Space in One Hundred The rain is so heavy that it covers the roofs, streets, and doors of the houses with flowers so that nobody can go out of his house the day after Ibid: When it rains for nearly five years, all the intrusions fade away.
The Great Rain is the turning point of the novel, the time when people return to their primitive way of life, in solitude. This solitude is always the target for intrusions. For instance, when train comes to Macondo, ". This shattered solitude strongly echoes in the whole city: The intrusions or invasions reach their peak in the process of urbanization and leads to alienation: Likewise, forgotten space is a space which is not cared or shared by feelings.
The whole atmosphere of such a space has the scent of solitude. There are many instances that the idea of solitude is juxtaposed with forgetfulness and oblivion in the novel: According to Bachelard, the house-image is a "topography of intimate being" Bachelard, He extends this idea and considers the "house as a tool for analysis of the human soul" Ibid: Thus, this part of the essay will trace this idea and explains how the house of Buendia becomes a metaphor of the family and of the town.
The house of Buendia is the space of intimacy. Women try to preserve this centre of the world for the family. Anybody who leaves the house will House 46 Pazhuhesh-e Zabanha-ye Khareji 27 always return in an urge to live there and die.
One of the characters who feels this centrality is Jose Arcadio, the son of the great Buendia. He leaves the house to join the gypsies.
Many years later he walks through the house: He went directly to the kitchen and there he stopped for the first time at the end of a trip that had begun on the other side of the world. When he shoots himself, in a place far from the house, his blood does not calm down until it reaches the centre of the Buendia house, the kitchen: A trickle of blood came out under the door, crossed the living room, went out into the street, continued on in a straight line across the uneven terraces, She sacrifices everything to keep the house a place to live in.
When her husband, disappointed by the isolation of the city, decides to leave, she replies: Anytime that the house is going to be ruined she reconstructs the house.
During her blindness, that lasts many years before her death, none of the inhabitants of the house recognizes she is blind because she is so intimate with the house that she acts as if she sees all the walls and objects Ibid: This is reminiscent of Bachelard's description of the house-image: According to him, the role of women in this intimacy is incomparable to men: A house that shines from the care it receives apears to have been rebuilt from the inside; it is as though it were new inside. In the intimate harmony of walls and furniture, it may be said that we become conscious of a house that is rebuilt by women, since men only know how to build a house from Poetization of Space in One Hundred The Production of Space, confirms Bachelard's genuine study and states that: It is a 'human space' that is meant to be lived in and once it is left empty, it suffers from solitude.
Colonel Aureliano Buendia "dreamed that he was going into an empty house with white walls and that he was upset by the burden of being the first human being to enter it" Garcia Marquez, When only one couple remains in the house, their solitude becomes the solitude of the house: The first condition that the people of Macondo set for the government agent is that they would be allowed to paint their houses the colour they feel like, as if by doing this they preserve their identity as well as that of their intimate space Ibid: The two political parties which are the cause of many calamities, by forcing people to paint their houses red or blue, try to dehumanize this emblem of human identity: House is the heart of human.
This poetic metaphor, which may seem cliche, is brilliantly adopted in a new context and defamiliarizes the whole idea: During the wait The house of Buendia is not kept at bay against the intrusions of the outsiders, either.
