Hegel in the 'Phenomenology of Spirit' and Gabriel Garcia Marquez in 'One Hundred Years of Solitude' both use metafictional devices to convince the reader of the reality of what is being read. However, Hegel's use of metafiction for both philosophical and rhetorical purposes achieves a more realistic effect than Garcia Marquez's because Hegel is more interested in truthfulness, whereas Garcia Marquez wishes only to blur the boundaries between fiction and reality.
