Chávez Obituaries From Around the Globe

Newspapers around the world were ready. Every major periodical from Chile to China had their Hugo Chávez obituary penned for months as the health of the longtime Venezuelan leader slowly deteriorated. In the weeks since Mr. Chávez health took a turn for the worse in January of 2013, editors have had time to gather photo albums, video collections, and notable quotes.

At 4:55 PM on March 5, when Venezuelan Vice President Nicolás Maduro announced the demise of El Comandante, every newspaper from around the world published what they had been saving on Chávez at once.

The result has been a deluge of Hugo related material. Chávez at home. Chávez abroad. Chavismo today, Chavismo tomorrow. For the casual reader, it can be difficult to know where to start.
