Forgotten mangrove forests

In Gabriel García Márquez’s landmark 1967 novel One Hundred Years of Solitude, a character who loses touch with reality is described as disappearing into “the mangrove-swamp of delirium.” The metaphor was likely an obvious one for Márquez, who grew up amongst mangroves in the remote Colombian town of Aracataca and knew well the feeling of being ensconced in those forests’ braided, muddy tangles.
