But, when Jefferson is convicted and sentenced to die, his grandmother, Miss Emma, and Grants Aunt, Tante-Lou beg Grant for one last favor, to teach Jefferson to die like a man. For example if a man throws a baseball and it turns into a bee in mid flight, there would be no astonishment about this incident. This accounts for ghosts, for premonitions, and the feeling that time is a great repetition rather than a progression. If I was a reader, would I want an explanation for this new element?

Look at Rob Reiner’s North, a movie made famous by Roger Ebert’s “hated, hated, hated, hated” review. These writers combined Roh's original theories of magical realism with French surrealist concepts of the marvelous, and their own indigenous mythologies. It is true that Flores identifies some elements of Magic Realism but most of the time he is completely off target. Fantasy is uninhibited imagination, magical realism is the art of producing effects beyond human power by supernatural means, a myth is a traditional story, or legend that concerns a superhuman being without always being based in fact. * The stories, �A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings,� by Gabriel Garcia, and �Fleur,� by Louise Erdrich combine all three of these to create captivating stories.
