Amaranta Ursula, is a sweeping image of Ursula Iguaran, in her attempts to turn the decaying Buendia household and the town of Macondo around. She also is recognized for her uplifting spirit that she holds even until her last moments. She is a dilligent, and optimistic character; loves her family quite dearly and will go to many attempts to keep her family and her household together. Because of her strong work ethic, she is an excellent candidate for many jobs, but what makes her so superior is the fact that she is able to explore her own interests and ideas as well as keep the Buendia household as nice as she is singlehandedly able to. Macondo is doomed to the repetition of history, and the curse of time being repeated in a circle, so she is not able to fufill her duties as well as she may have liked, but she is most respected for her attempts.
"Active, small and indomitable like Ursula, and almost as pretty and provocative as Remedios the Beauty" (379)
-Gabriel Garcia Marquez
"It was Amaranta Ursula who ruled in that paradise of disaster" (405)
