Magical Realism

Magic realism or magical realism is a genre where magic elements are a natural part in an otherwise mundane, realistic environment. On the surface, the story has no clear magical attributes and everything is conveyed in a real setting, the attributes of the character(s) breaks the rules of our real world. The author may give precise details of the real world such as the date of birth of a reference character and the army recruitment age, but such facts help to define an age for the fantastic character of the story that would turn out to be an abnormal occurrence such as someone living for two hundred years. Matthew Strecher defines magic realism as "what happens when a highly detailed, realistic setting is invaded by something too strange to believe."
