In the short story â€œTuesday Siestaâ€±, Gabriel Garcia Marquez subtly illustrates his tone of the story, that tone being respect. Description, characterization and straight- forward dialogue are used to portray his seriousness, emotion and utter dignified opinion for the mother. It is through the writerâ€™s tone and character portrayal that the theme of the story is presented. Marquezâ€™s attitude towards his topic is clear throughout the story, showing his sincerity for people living in poverty, and the pride he has towards the mother.
