Magical Realism In A Monster Calls And The Ocean At The End Of The Lane

Magical realism as a literary mode has been the cause of numerous debates since the publication of One Hundred Years of Solitude by the Colombian author Gabriel García Márquez in 1967, which the majority of critics consider to be the first magical realist novel. Magical realism has been frequently confused with fantasy and is still considered by some as the latter's branch. Though there is no unified definition of magical realism, critics have agreed upon some of the most common characteristics. The present thesis makes use of Wendy B. Faris's theoretical framework on the mode's characteristics and applies it to A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness and The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman. In both novels, marvellous happenings are incorporated seamlessly into a realistic narrative, which is the basic definition of magical realism. The events are presented matter-of-factly; thus, readers perceive them as realistic. Both novels also contain the primary characteristics that define magical realism as a literary mode, according to Faris. A Monster Calls has been adapted into a movie as well as translated into Slovene as Sedem minut čez polnoč. In the translation, magical realism retains its characteristics, since it is mainly a content based literary mode. In the movie, however, visual representations of the irreducible element, i. e. the yew tree monster, offer the viewers an opportunity to perceive it as ordinary.

A Library Journal Starred Review "An intriguing anthology of essays...fascinating...academics and readers who enjoy Gaiman's books will appreciate the care put into this impressive collection"--Library Journal "There is joy in seeing such diverse perspectives excavating Neil Gaiman's efforts. Not unexpectedly, the years of his work warrant endless analysis, and this volume is a keen example of such. It's a pleasure to be a part of it."--JH Williams III, New York Times bestselling comic book artist and writer. Neil Gaiman has emerged as one of the most influential literary figures of the 21st century. To borrow a phrase from his viral 2012 University of the Arts commencement speech, Gaiman "makes good art," from his graphic novels to his social media collaborations, award-winning fantasy fiction and beloved children's books. This collection of new essays examines a range of Gaiman's prolific output, with readings of the novels American Gods, Anansi Boys, The Graveyard Book and The Ocean at the End of the Lane. Children's books The Wolves in the Walls and Blueberry Girl and the online short story collection A Calendar of Tales are discussed. Gaiman's return to the serial comic book form with Sandman: Overture is covered, and Artist J.H. Williams III contributes an exclusive interview about his collaboration with Gaiman on Sandman. Cartoonist Judd Winick offers a personal essay on how contemporary artists have been influenced by Gaiman's work.

Neverwhere is the stunningly original first novel from Neil Gaiman, the bestselling and prizewinning author of The Ocean at the End of the Lane and American Gods. Wired called it 'the sort of book Terry Pratchett might produce if he spent a month locked in a cellar with Frank Kafka'. This is a must-read for all those who loved Susanna Clarke's Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell or the magical world of J.K. Rowling. Under the streets of London there's a world most people could never even dream of. A city of monsters and saints, murderers and angels, and pale girls in black velvet. Richard Mayhew is a young businessman who is about to find out more than he bargained for about this other London. A single act of kindness catapults him out of his safe and predictable life and into a world that is at once eerily familiar and yet utterly bizarre. There's a girl named Door, an Angel called Islington, an Earl who holds Court on the carriage of a Tube train, a Beast in a labyrinth, and dangers and delights beyond imagining . . . And Richard, who only wants to go home, is to find a strange destiny waiting for him below the streets of his native city.

From the bestselling author of the acclaimed novel AMERICAN GODS and the prize-winning THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE. In May 2012, Neil Gaiman delivered the commencement address at Philadelphia's University of the Arts, in which he shared his thoughts about creativity, bravery, and strength. He encouraged the fledgling painters, musicians, writers, and dreamers to break rules and think outside the box. Most of all, he urged them to make good art. The book MAKE GOOD ART, designed by renowned graphic artist Chip Kidd, contains the full text of Gaiman's inspiring speech. Praise for Neil Gaiman: 'A very fine and imaginative writer' The Sunday Times 'Exhilarating and terrifying' Independent 'Urbane and sophisticated' Time Out 'A jaw-droppingly good, scary epic positively drenched in metaphors and symbols... As Gaiman is to literature, so Antoni Gaudi was to architecture' Midweek 'Neil Gaiman is a very good writer indeed' Daily Telegraph
