Abstract

Upon first reading, El amor en los tiempos del cólera may seem to be nothing more than a romantic story of unrequited love, drawing on the tropes of nineteenth century Romantic literature, realist fiction techniques and pastoral imagery. However, the thin, sentimental veneer of the novel masks an unsettling and contradictory message about the very ideals that it seems to endorse.
