Marquez offers a critique of the religious clay when he describes the arrival of the Bishop who is representative of the power of the Church. In preparation of the Bishops arrival the town prep ared many cocks which are rather a physical offering to the Church rather than a spiritual offering.The commonwealths inability to act upon the Vicarios brothers save is a Marquezs critique of the decadence of the Old Christian assess system. Father Amador does not condemn the Vicario brothers for their actions but instead he says that they are forgiven on the bases of acting to avenge their sisters honour. The mayor is withal unable to take action and he simply takes away their knives. We alike explored the influence of Marquezs life on his style of writing.The influence of Marquezs granny knot on his style of realism was also explored. Marquezs grandmothers way of telling unlikely stories as if they were facts influenced his style in Chronicles of a Death Foretold. The murder of Santiago Nasar remains a carry through mystery until the end of the novel and the episodes that unfold in the story count extremely unlikely however the death was accepted by the contributor because of factual tone in which it was told.
