For nine decades there has been resilience to the term that goes beyond any debate. What's really neat is that your magical additions will still achieve your goals. It is telling stories that assert the validity of a world view struggling to survive. In the other mediums, however, this mysticism becomes more difficult because the story is being presented to someone visually so that anything mystical is either taken to be fact or fiction on the spot.

If I HAD to nitpick, I’d say that my connection with the characters isn’t as strong as the one with Alina and Mal from the Grisha trilogy by Leigh Bardugo. What do you think makes for a happy life? Both must make their way to each other to become their complete self and gradually become whole.

From the first reading of the book, we see a large numbers of characters being introduced. There are numerous examples of this in the show Fringe . (Really. Thus magical realism has political and sociological connotations as well. Today readers resist such descriptive writing, but before films and television were invented, it had a magical effect on people, causing the world depicted to explode from the page in an almost tangible fashion.

Check out the Texts/Literature page of this blog to get more of an overview of the texts I discuss in my posts. Let’s look at something really borderline, then, shall we? There’s also a wonderful interview with me over at Electric Literature, published last week. In fact there were a number of points where the internal logic of the story didn't work.
