magic realism, magical realist, mystery
‘Magic realism’ or ‘magical realism’ are expressions which many people have heard and yet very a small amount of readers have a apparent thought of what they may comprise and entail. Much of the mystification concerning their meaning has occurred due to the conflation of criticism on ‘magic realist’ art and literature and that of ‘magical realist’ literature. Although they have many features in general, the two terms refer to cleverly different individuality and influences. What follows aims to differentiate and extricate these critical terms so that their meaning is clarified and their usage is significant. This paper will formulate a distinction between ‘magic realism’ as the idea of the ‘mystery does not go down to the represented world, but rather hides and palpitates behind it’ and ‘magical realism’ that is tacit, in Salman Rushdie’s words, as the ‘commingling of the doubtful and the mundane’.
