Transcript of Magical Realism
What is magical realism?
Magic/al realism is the literary or artistic genre in which realistic narrative and naturalistic technique are combined with surreal elements of dream or fantasy
The literary side of magic realism originated in Latin America, however these writers drew their inspiration from European artists. Eventually, with the publication of works like Jose Ortega y Gasset's the magic realism theme expanded into other regions of the world.
