One Hundred Years of Solitude

by

Gabriel García Márquez

Teachers and parents! Our Teacher Edition on One Hundred Years of Solitude makes teaching easy.
The twin of José Arcadio Segundo and son of Santa Sofia de la Piedad and Arcadio. Aureliano grows to be a fat hedonist, loving orgies and behaving recklessly. He marries Fernanda del Carpio, a woman from another town whom he admires in a carnival parade, but they are ill-suited, as she is far more mannered than he is. Aureliano Segundo carries on a lifelong affair with Petra Cotes, and the passion of their relationship is contagious to the livestock they raise together, making Aureliano Segundo a very wealthy man. Úrsula speculates that Aureliano Segundo and José Arcadio Segundo switched identities as children because they both so accurately match the temperament associated with the other’s name.

Úrsula did not get up again after the nine nights of mourning for Amaranta, Santa Sofia de la Piedad took care of her. She took her meals to her bedroom and annatto water for her to wash in and kept her up to date on everything that happened in Macondo. Aureliano Segundo visited her frequently and he brought her clothing which she would place beside the bed along with the things most indispensible for daily life, so that in a short time she had built up a world within reach of her hand.
