ID : 79762   
« back to classes page

Magical realism, is characterized by the matter-of-fact inclusion of fantastic or mythic elements into otherwise realistic fiction. This tactic is known in the literature of many cultures in many ages, but the term magical realism is a relatively recent designation, first applied in the 1940s and recognized extensively throughout much of Latin American literature. There’s speculation that magical realism is an expected consequence of postcolonial writing, which must rationalize at least two separate realities—the reality of the conquerors, as well as that of the conquered. We’ll explore and discuss Chicana and female Latin American writers who’ve utilized this literary tool.
