Essentially, Marquez tries to tell the reader something, about not only our own nature, but also about the way that we react to some of life's little miracles. Irony is displayed in "A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings" through the audience's reactions and perceptions of the Old Man who is believed by many to be an angel. When Elisenda and Pelayo, the owners of the house where the Old Man landed, notice the fascination of their neighbors at the man's wings, the decide to lock him up and exploit him, putting him on display and charging admission to see the "oddity" that crashed in their backyard. The irony lies in the fact that the man was, no matter what he is, he is treated no better than a farm animal. Angel or no, the old Man was a wounded, majestic creature who deserved the townspeople's reverence and compassion.
This attracts visitors from all around including the local priest Father Gonzaga. He studies the old man and tells the crowd that there is no way this man can be an angel because he does not speak Latin. However, more and more visitors make their way to Pelayo and Elisenda’s home to see this fascinating creature. As more and more people come to visit this old man the crowd begins to fill with not only curious viewers but sick ones as well. One visitor claims that the stars in the night sky are too noisy and another would sleepwalk to undo the things he had done while he was
2. The center of this story is the dark side of human behavior - hypocrisy, greed, fear and paranoia. The old man represents humanity, but his wings suggest that he has escaped, flown above the crowd. He is an old man instead of a young man because the elderly should be respected for their wisdom - but as is often the case - they are often shunted aside by the selfish young. His wings also connect him to innocence and spirituality because a man with wings is often intrepreted to be an angel.
When we do finally stumble upon something truly extraordinary, we end up missing out on our fantasies that came to life. Marquez’s story called, “A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings” is a short story about how a small family finds a creature in their courtyard that looks like a very old angel. People from far and wide travel to see the creature, and even a priest comes to decide whether this being is an angel or not. The family begins to make money off the majestic being by charging entry to see him. The small family’s courtyard becomes a circus show, to the point even a woman who was turned into a spider comes into town with a traveling show and tells her sad tale.

It says “Then later at dinner the King arranged the seating and joked with all…”, saying that Henry VIII and his nobility share more than a work relationship and can laugh and joke together. This type of behaviour indicates that Henry VIII probably had little friendships with some of his nobility.

“A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings” is a fascinating narration that can be appreciated as a captivating tale for children as well as an intriguing fiction for the adult reader. This children tale develops in a mixture of fantasy and realism scenario, which characterizes the style of the author of this story, Gabriel Garcia Marquez (Norton 428). The narrative is about the appearance of an old man, with the physiognomy of an angel that appears in the backyard of Pelayo and Elisenda, a poor couple, from a town near a coast. Despite the appearances, the fundamental aspect of this tale is not the supernatural look of this old man, but the community attitudes toward the unknown. This can be observed as the news of the arrival of a "flesh-and-blood angel" is rapidly spread among the neighbors of Pelayo and Elisenda, and the comments and judgments are not slow to appear (Marquez 270).

He talks about doing normal things with her such as cooking pies, and riding around with her in his car, but spends an abnormal amount of money on her without her even having to ask. It says in the song, “she aint wantin’ for nothin’ because I got her everything”. In essence, because of all the things that he does for her, she in turn pole dances for him and pleasures him in a physical sense. The end of the song shows his arrogance when he says he can walk in a house and have sex with anyone’s girl.
