Abstract: This research project is meant to be a contribution to the prominent work done by the famous literary translator Edith Grossman in “El amor en los tiempos del cólera” written by the Nobel Prize-winning author and novelist Gabriel García Márquez. The analysis is based on the Polysystem Theory created by the culture researcher Itamar Even-Zohar. Gabriel García’s book is constantly denominated as an overly romantic novel by critics. It also includes Colombian culture, politics, and a terrible disease that attacked Hispano-America. The Polysystem Theory studies translation within the source culture. Literary translations play a special role in the theory. Even-Zohar states that to render a faithful translation it is necessary to understand the deep connection between language and culture. This paper analyses the source text and translated text considering them a cross-culture communication.
