      Abstract

      A partir de la década de 1980, el autor de Cien años de soledad se convirtió en el gran ídolo y fuente de "angustia de las influencias" (en términos de Harold Bloom) para toda una generación de escritores chinos: Jia Pingwa, Yu Hua, Su Tong, Yan Lianke, Ma Yuan y Mo Yan, entre otros. En este artículo se propone una lectura paralela de Gabriel García Márquez y Mo Yan, el premio nobel chino, con el propósito de demostrar que el realismo mágico latinoamericano y su aventura en China ha formado parte de la historia de la literatura contemporánea del país asiático: a los escritores chinos no solo les avivó su memoria y les hizo adoptar otra actitud hacia su pasado; también les mostró el camino para escribir un nuevo tipo de novela (noveau roman).

      Translated abstract

      Since the 1980s, the author of Hundred Years of Solitude has become a great idol and a constant source of the "anxiety of influence" (as phrased by Harold Bloom) for an entire generation of Chinese writers, including Jia Pingwa, Yu Hua, Su Tong, Yan Lianke, Ma Yuan and Mo Yan. The paper proposes a parallel reading between Gabriel García Márquez and Mo Yan, the Chinese Nobel laureate, in order to demonstrate that the Latin American magical realism and its adventure in China has formed part of Chinese contemporary literature history. Not only has the magical realism revived the memory of these Chinese writers and pushed them to adopt a new attitude regarding their own history, but it has also shown them a way of writing new novels.
