“On the third day of rain they had killed so many crabs inside the house that Pelayo had to cross his drenched courtyard and throw them into the sea, because the newborn child had a temperature all night and they thought it was due to the stench. The world had been sad since Tuesday. Sea and sky were a single ash-gray thing and the sands of the beach, which on March nights glimmered like powdered light, had become a stew of mud and rotten shellfish. The light was so weak at noon that when Pelayo was coming back to the house after throwing away the crabs, it was hard for him to see what it was that was moving and groaning in the rear of the courtyard. He had to go very close to see that it was an old man, a very old man, lying face down in the mud, who, in spite of his tremendous efforts, couldn’t get up, impeded by his enormous wings.” This paragraph does a good job of setting the tone.
Events in summary: (1) Pelayo goes to throw the crabs that had entered his house during the storm to the sea in a rainy night, and on his way back he finds a very old man with enormous wings in his courtyard. (2) A neighbor woman tells him that it's an old angel that had been knocked down by the rain. Pelayo and Elisenda decide to lock the angel in the chicken coop. (3) the rumor expands and people from the whole country and even from others gets to their house to see the angel. They decide to charge five cents admission.
Pelayo and his wife have an ugly and ordinary life just like the health of the angel when he arrived in their courtyard. At the beginning of the story, Marquez describes the miserable life of Pelayo and his family: “On the third day of rain they had killed so many crabs inside the house that Pelayo had to cross his drenched courtyard and throw them into the sea, because the newborn child had a temperature all night and they thought it was due to the stench. The world had been sad since Tuesday.” (p.76) This quote explain pretty well the ugly and ordinary life of the characters. They have to kill crabs inside their house, because it’s raining and they don’t have enough room to do that at a different place. They have a sick newborn and it is consistently raining.
A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings The story of A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings is a tale in which a pitiful looking man with wings is found outside of the home of Pelayo and Elisenda. Pelayo sees the man while he is removing crabs from their home and throwing them into the sea. His wife, Elisenda, was caring for their ill, newborn child at the time. Pelayo was frightened and pulled his wife into the courtyard to observe the old man. They believed him to be a castaway, but sought the advice of a neighboring older woman.
Good and Evil Coexist: Good Wins In the beginning of the story a father, mother and ailing child are all at home on a gloomy day. It was unknown why their child was sick, but the father was determined to blame it on the overwhelming amount of crabs around the house. Because the newborn baby had a temperature all night, they thought it was due to the stench (Marquez, 1955, p. 1). As the father killed crabs he came across a figure laying in the mud, it was an old man with wings. My initial thought process was this is an angel, but the description of the “being” did cause some second-guessing.
My neighbor cursed them to me when I saw him, claiming that what few eggs they laid were soft and broke when he picked them up. I moved when he kicked one, and set up my shop for the day. The next day, as I passed the chicken shack, I noticed one chicken lying next to the shack--its face was swollen, and the combs of the cocks had taken on a blueish coloration. The chicken also seemed to be sneezing, but I can never tell. I did not see my neighbor that morning, and I moved on.
The story begins with a man named Pelayo who discovers a homeless, disoriented old man on his property whom he discovers to have very large wings. The old man is dirty and seemingly senile, and speaks an incomprehensible language. After seeking out the input of a neighbor, Pelayo and his wife, Elisenda, decide that the old man must be an angel who has tried to come and take their sick child to heaven. At first their neighbor tells them that they should kill the old man, however, the couple sees that their child has recovered and so they take pity on the man and allow him to stay in their chicken coop. Soon after the man begins to form a nest in the chicken coop he starts to form a crowd of people curious as to who or what he is; not only are the people from the village coming to see this man, but when news begins to spread visitors travel from all across the land to see him.
