Gabriel Garcia Marquez's short story "A very Old Man with Enormous Wings" uses flight as literally a means of escape. His story is rooted in magic realism. The old man actually represents an angel-figure or Christ-figure who, because of his looks, is treated like a freak. In the end he literally flies away, escaping the foolishness or sin of man.
