Márquez is considered not only one of the best Spanish language authors of all time, but one of the best authors of the 1900s. He was awarded an esteemed Nobel Prize in Literature in 1982. Because he was a journalist early in his career, some of his first works were non-fiction. However, Márquez is best known for his novels like One Hundred Years of Solitude and The Autumn Patriarch. He wrote in a unique style that was based on realism but had magical elements.
