In El general en su laberinto, García Márquez offers a critique of the historical process and examination of the methodology of history as a discipline in several interrelated dimensions. Central to a vision of the novel as "historiographic metafiction" are the author's disclosure of his own methodology in compiling the story of Bolívar and the relationship between oral versions and written documents within the fiction itself.
