Abstract

[en] This dissertation will consist of a comparison of three writers’ respective works which are considered as examples of magical realist literature. I chose to discuss the French-Cuban Alejo Carpentier’s novel The Kingdom of This World (1949), the British Angela Carter’s The Magic Toyshop (1967) and the American Daniel Wallace’s Big Fish (1998). As can be seen, these three authors came from different geographical locations and published their work at different times. Together with their cultural background and literary influences, here are the factors that motivated me to explore Magical Realism across borders. This choice of topic was dictated by the need to account for different forms of this type of literature and the different but related ways in which it was used in Europe, North America and South America by writers who did not belong to the same generation, evolved in different historical and cultural contexts and, hence, were not subject to the same influences and sources of inspiration.
