Descripción del producto


"Unraveling the Real offers a welcome update to the existing criticism on the genre and some useful speculation as to its future... [T]he literature covered is substantial, and all major critical perspectives are well represented. This is a highly readable and useful book for students, scholars, and others interested in the fantastic literature of Latin America." The Americas, October 2012 "Unraveling the Real is a very readable, succinct introduction to the topic of the fantastic and its primary critics. Duncan presents a review of the texts on the fantastic and applies this trace to individual authors and film directors, narrative strategies, psychological processes and gender issues. Her introduction is effective in establishing the borders and transgressions of the fantastic, and she is not afraid of moving from the literature of and on the fantastic to the questioning of cultural constructs. Her objective to emphasize the analysis of social criticism is an effective approach." Enrique Sacerio-Gari, Bryn Mawr College

Descripción del producto

In literary and cinematic fictions, the fantastic blurs the lines between reality and fantasy. Lacking a consensus on definition, critics often describe the fantastic as supernatural, or similar to, but quite different from fantasy, science fiction, and magical realism. In Unraveling the Real Cynthia Duncan provides a new theoretical framework for discussing how the fantastic explores both metaphysical and socially relevant themes in Spanish American fictions. Duncan deftly shows how authors and artists have used this literary genre to convey marginalized voices as well as critique colonialism, racism, sexism, and classism. Selecting examples from the works of such noted writers as Jorge Luis Borges, Julio Cortazar, and Carlos Fuentes, among others, she shows how capacious the concept is, and why it eludes standard definition. Challenging the notion that the fantastic is escapist in nature, Unraveling the Real shows how the fantastic has been politically engaged throughout the twentieth century, often questioning what is real or unreal.
Presenting a mirror image of reality, the fantastic does not promote a utopian parallel universe but rather challenges the way we think about the world around us and the cultural legacy of colonialism.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas The "Subversive" Fantastic 3 de enero de 2011
Por I.T. Librarian - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa blanda
I approached this book with some trepidation fearing another obtuse, "scholarly" treatment of a genre I thought had run its course. To my delight I found a book that clearly presented various critical theories and definitions of the genre while providing fascinating examples of how fantastic authors can lead us along a labyrinth of narratives that explore psychology, gender, race, class and politics. Prof. Duncan has provided an intriguing framework for explaining how narratives used to achieve a fantastic effect also "subvert" or challenge commonly held beliefs.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in this kind of literature or social criticism. While Spanish is quoted throughout the book, Duncan is very good at putting the quote in context so that non-Spanish readers will understand the context. The book made me want to go out and read fantastic literature again and what a delight to know that this genre still has a lot of life left in it and that Duncan has provided a framework for me to explore and enjoy it even more.
