Alejo Carpentier’s “Viaje a la semilla” and Julio Cortazar’s “La noche boca arriba” will be our focus. The analysis of the two stories will attempt to generalize what elements of real and fantastic are in most, if not all of “lo real maravilloso.” Before we analyse how magical and real elements are used in short stories, we first need to point out the definition of this literary style.

There is total social control in both novels by the government controlling what is on the television by brainwashing and dumbing down their citizens.

The poem is a drama because the characters are the speakers in the poem. The line, “We waited as the wind blew in our hair. We did not know where to run.”, sounds like a person discussing a situation they were in. Other examples, like “I knew only before” and “I am your mystery.” seem like different characters speaking. Another proof that this poem can be a drama is because the lines are differents colors.
