Course Description

As one of the most significant twentieth-century literary movements, magic realism - the occurrence of the fantastical within otherwise objective narratives - influenced writers as diverse as Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Salman Rushdie and Angela Carter. By close-reading of a selection of magic realist novels, we will examine in detail this most elusive and intriguing of literary genres, from its emergence in South America, its complex politics, and its ambivalent relationship to science-fiction and fantasy. Reading lists will be circulated before the course.
