One of the most significant and prominent authors passed away last fortnight – Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I read One Hundred Years of Solitude during my senior college years. Magical Realism has long been associated with the vernacular literature in my home state.
The Buendia family in One Hundred Years of Solitude is another epic on it’s own. See a very nice graphic family tree below.
I always wanted to visualize a family tree using a graph, and the Buendias of Macondo seemed so perfect. My other choice was the political families of India, which is pretttyyy vaasttt..
The visualization is pretty straightforward, two types of nodes
And 4 simple relationships
- MISTRESS (Sorry, could not find an euphemism for that)
Apologies if it is too cluttered, but you could play around with the graphgist…
