This article is a parallel and comparative reading of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude and Gaston Bachelard's theoretical work, The Poetics of Space. It starts with this presumption that there is an affinity between what Marquez terms as the "poeticized space" and Bachelard's notion of "intimate spaces". The philosophical context of his study, i.e. phenomenology, clarifies the manner in which Bachelard chooses to perceive human spaces. The spaces discussed are phenomena rather than objects and gain their identity when they become intermingled with human consciousness. Three fundamental spaces (as examples of intimate spaces), city, house and objects are studied in order to illustrate the poetic depth of the novel. Furthermore, it will be discussed the way these spaces establish a "human geography" in which characters' lives interact and interrelate emotionally with the spaces they live in.
