American background. The world is grounded in the actual world, with fantastical factors
considered normal in the world. Just like fairy tales, magical realism novels and short tales
distort the line distinguishing truth and fantasy. The traits of magical realism are realistic settings
containing supernatural elements. Most books have speaking objects and lifeless characters.
Telepathy is also a frequent function in these stories. The authors of magical realism deliberately
fail to provide an explanation for the magic in their words, which normalizes it making it appear
like an everyday part of everyday life. An author makes use of magical realism to supply a
critique to society and specifically the politics and moves of the elite. The style has expanded in
reputation over the years. Therefore, this analysis pursuits to explain the magical realism in " The
