Fantasy is a broad category that I like to define as “the impossible made plausible.” The key to making the unreal plausible is to move it a few steps from the irrational and chaotic realm of Dionysus and make it reasonable. Thus, South African magical realist texts will be positioned at the intersection between literature of celebration and literature of disillusionment, emerging out of the short-lived coexistence of the two literary trends in South African literary history.
