Its main purpose is to entertain the reader. Although it is written in a humorous tone, the issue arisen in comic fantasy usually related to social satire or subversion (Nicolas, 2015; Ryder, 2015. It is often characterized by the existence of ridiculous characters, peculiar setting, and bizarre magical rules and creatures. The next sub-genre
We train ourselves to see reality exactly as it is, and we call this special mode of perception 'mindfulness.' This process of mindfulness is really quite different from what we usually do. We usually do not look into what is really there in front of us. We see life through a screen of thoughts and concepts, and we mistake those mental objects for the reality. We get so caught up in this endless thought stream that reality flows by
Imagination can be defined as the ability of an individual to from images and to think in a creative or inventive way ,the ability to dream and create an illusion of ourselves and it is something that everyone processes. The imagination of a human being can be a blessing in disguise or beautiful nightmare. Either one of these can affect the way an individual 's willingness to embrace or reject an uncertain future. When someone imagination is shaped by dramatic desire and moral rejects the world around them begins to feel like a frightening place. The wellness to reject an uncertain future will become far more prominent than for other people compared to an individual that hasn 't been faced with the same chances.
A lot of genres falls alongside with sub-genres, which have a more defined formula. One film example that will have a sub-genre is a fantasy film. This type of film usually overlaps or crossover with other genres, like science fiction, and sometimes historical dramas (Goodykoontz & Jacobs, 2014). While going forth with my paper on “The Wizard of Oz”, I will help the viewers understand
Amaryll Chanady in her book ‘Magical Realism and Fantastic’ characterizes magical realism with two conflicting ideas, one based on an enlightened view of reality and the other one based on the acceptance of celestial as a part of this real world. Thereby, magical realism in literature defends the concurrence of real and fantastic. The narrator accepts realistic conventions, also introduces things which are not seen as real into the text. These elements are woven together in a magical realist text seamlessly. Thus the text does not only belong to the realm of fantasy but also empirical reality.
Martin (2010) says that magic is the central of fantasy stories. According to him, magic can lead the reader into a bored and uninterested mood if it is done poorly, conversely, it will fuel an astonishing and incredible story if the author can create a sophisticated and interesting magic. In order to make an interesting magic, therefore, author needs to create the rule on how the magic will work along the story. 2.2. Magic Law Nikolajeva (1988, as cited in Watts, 2006) states that magic law is rules that apply in order to build up an imagined world.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory(Charlie) was a children 's story that Tim Burton adapted and turned it into a slightly darker story than the one we knew. In the movie many characters are put into situations that are comical, but would in real life end in death. One such moment would be when a girl named Vurka Salt is thrown into an incinerator pit by squirrels who deem her a bad nut, as she tips over the edge of the pit the audience is given one last look at her fearful face. The situation is on the surface is a harmless joke about how the girl is a selfish brat who needs discipline. Strangely at the
However, this means that what we see may not be reality, but a perceived reality. We are all living in our own simulation of the real world. If this is true, then logic follows that we can ‘highjack’ our sense of reality by introducing external stimulants. Suddenly, Virtual Reality (VR) doesn’t seem that far off anymore. All
The Twisted Side of Fairy Tales In this modern day and age, numerous animated and film adaptations of the classic fairy tales of renowned authors such as the Grimm brothers, Charles Perrault, and Hans Christian Andersen, to name a few, have fed our imaginations with wonder with its surreal and magical creations of their fantasy world where there is an absolute line between good and evil, right and wrong, and the protagonists and antagonists. To be fairly frank, we think that the modern retelling of those classic tales to children by the storybooks and through the media and film industry is detrimental to them in their perception of reality, in building up their self-image and the development of their absolutist view of good and evil. For several
11. Conclusion: The words romance and romantic have come to mean so many things that the exact sense in which somebody uses them can be judged only by the context in which they are used. These words may be used in a complimentary or commendatory sense but they are also used in a disparaging and depreciatory sense. However, speaking broadly, romance has a close connection with imagination and the emotions. Anything fanciful and anything removed from reality is romantic; and anything, which stirs, excites, or stimulates the emotions, is romantic too.
