The Handsomest Drowned Man in the World
(El ahogado mas hermoso del mundo)
The short story “The Handsomest Drowned Man in the World” by Gabriel Garcia Marquez was first published in 1968. The story begins with the children of a seaside fishing village finding a drowned man floating ashore. This discovery does not affect their sense of play as they proceed to bury and dig him up again and again. Adults see the drowned man and carry him into the village. The men visit other villages to see if anyone is missing and the women ready the body for burial. This corpse becomes the source of inspiration for the villagers.
