Foucault and Marquez

After discussing the analyses of the role of the author, it made me wonder what a conversation would be like between Foucault and Marquez. Although I acknowledge the authorial reticence in "100 Years" and Marquez's objectivity, I believe that Foucault would argue with Marquez's employment of historical implications. Foucault emphasized the significance of cultural and historical influences on discourse; thus, I think he could have argued with Marquez's metafiction, as well as his subversive texts. What would Foucault have said to Marquez about his work??
