This is a quick summary of A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings by Gabriel García Márquez. This channel discusses and reviews books, novels, and short stories through drawing...poorly.

Transcript: This is a story about a husband and wife named Pelayo and Elisenda who live near the ocean. They are proud parents to a newborn child, though the child is sick. After a bad storm, they notice an old man with wings near their house and keep him in the chicken coop.

The townspeople are curious as to what the man is and it is determined that the old man with wings is an angel.

Father Gonzaga, the town priest, visits the old man with wings, but after speaking with him, the Father doesn’t believe he is an angel. Despite his doubt, he still writes a letter to the bishop for orders on what to do.

Meanwhile, Pelayo and Elisenda begin charging people money to see the old man with wings and they become very wealthy.

To capitalize on the popularity of the old man with wings, a woman-spider arrives and impresses the crowd, which results in less visitors for the old man with wings.

Pelayo and Elisenda build a new, bigger house and raise their son as the old man with wings continues to live outside. The old man with wings begins to get sick and loses his wings, but survives the tough winter.

In the end, the old man with wings grows new feathers on his back and eventually flies away.
