- Magic Realism - 1,411 words
Magic Realism Magic Realism appeared as a critical term for the arts and it later extended to literature. The term was first used by the German critic Franz Roh in 1925 to characterize a group of Post-Expressionist painters.

A magic realist narrator creates the illusion of "unreality," faking the escape from the natural ...

- One Hundred Years Of Solitude - 1,592 words
One Hundred Years of Solitude Since the beginning of time, man has clung to the notion that there exists some external force that determines his destiny.

Clotho "spun the thread of life", Lacheis distributed the lots, and Atropos with his "abhorred shears" would "cut the thread at death"(Hamilton-43). All efforts to avoid the Fates were in vain. In every case their sentence would eventually be delivered. And it appears that once the Fates' ballot had been cast, the characters in Greek myths had n ...
