I start with a review of the literature on magic realism. In Chapter I, I propose to read Narayan as a magic realist writer. His style helps understand the mode as an attitude to reality preexisting the theorization on the mode.
The Realist Novel
In the following two chapters, I contend with the major reservations critics have expressed about the trend. In Chapter II, the focus will be on the issue of escapism which is undermined by the political and social dimension of some of Rushdie's novels. Chapter III deals with the way Roy's work subverts the claim that the mode is necessarily exoticizing as she subverts the exotic potential while continuing to deploy magic realism.

Be the first to write a review About this product. About this product Product Information Studying genre is perhaps one of the most familiar ways of approaching literary texts, and the realist novel is one of the most distinct genres of all.
The contributors to this volume look at two aspects of genre, the formal and historical, and show how writers such as Jane Austen and Charles Dickens used the realist novel to tell profoundly moral tales in a popular way. The contributors also examine how some writers, such as Mary Shelley, challenged the genre's mainstream characteristics to lasting effect. A selection of key critical texts is included, and these help to develop the reader's understanding of the issues raised in context. The emphasis throughout is upon practice not theory, and each chapter offers exercises in reading and studying literature.
