  • Paul Scheerbart’s Kaleidoscopic Fantasies

    • Authors: Susana Martins Oliveira
      Pages: 11 - 26
      Abstract: The work of the German polymath Paul Scheerbart is attracting a renewed attention in recent years. During his prolific career, his unconventional fiction, art and poetry influenced a range of intellects, from architect Bruno Taut to Walter Benjamin, who even quoted his ideas on glass in his Arcades Project. Scheerbart wrote dozens of outer-space novels and utopian stories, plus articles and reviews, always about things like glass architecture, perfect outer-worlds and realities, reflecting extreme dreams, ambitions and fears. In this essay I will revisit Scheerbart’s various writings with an emphasis on the book Glass Architecture (1972) and the novel The Gray Cloth and Ten Percent White: A Ladies’ Novel (2001), in order to understand the metaphor of glass and colour that shaped the fantastic dimension of his work while, at the same time, reveal a myriad of ambivalent, and often opposed, meanings.

  • The Impossible Spaces in the Narrative of Leopoldo Marechal. Analysis of
           the Utopical and Distopci Construction of Buenos Aires

    • Authors: Ana Davis González
      Pages: 27 - 46
      Abstract: Leopoldo Marechal (1900-1970) belongs to a line of Argentine narrators who established a literary tradition in his country, and whose influence on later writers has been decisive. His prolific writing led him to cultivate all genres: prose, poetry, theater and essay, taking his first steps in modernist poetry. A more personal style is revealed in later publications, becoming known for his ambitious first novel, Adán Buenosayres (1948), which made him one of the great narrators of Argentine literature. The present research aims at analyzing space in Marechal’s three novels: Adán (1948), El Banquete de Severo Arcángelo (1965) and Megafón o la Guerra (1971). This space, in turn, is intertwined with two interdependent concepts: utopia and the fantastic. The following study exposes the evolution of these units from Adán to Megafón, with a double aim: to unveil the process of the formal and stylistic transformation of Marechal, and to highlight the significant role that space has in its narrative, particularly in relation to the Fantastic genre and the notion of utopia.

  • The allegorical dimension in Pepetela's novel O quase fim do mundo

    • Authors: Maria Cristina Batalha
      Pages: 47 - 63
      Abstract: The aim of this text is to reflect on the construction of modern fantastic literature through the analysis of Pepetela’s novel O quase fim do mundo (2008). This is a novel about a catastrophe, namely the fact that the use of a weapon of mass destruction eliminates almost all humans and other animal species on Earth. I will observe the creation of unusual and plural worlds that promote the displacement from a real world that is not denied, but presented by the development of science and a new human status. This catastrophe allows for the emergence of a new era, with conditions and different lifestyles, which, in its turn, makes possible the rising of a communist society. However, this is not achieved, because if there are positive signs in this society, such as social equity, there is also evidence that proves the contrary, such as ethnic bias and a probable return of old style social classes and all that comes with it. This book also demonstrates how the concept of an absolute truth is replaced by other truths via constant historic and aesthetic displacements coming from new African writers and their writing.

  • Gothic London: On the Capital of Urban Fantasy in Neil Gaiman, China
           Miéville and Peter Ackroyd

    • Authors: Arno Meteling
      Pages: 65 - 84
      Abstract: There are good reasons to call London the capital of urban fantasy. Like no other city it embodies an intertwinedness of enlightenment and modernity with notions of the occult, the mythical and the magical. The idea of an urban underworld that somehow is the dark mirror of the city is central for the depiction of a fantastic London. I will look into three examples of urban fantasy: Neil Gaiman’s novel Neverwhere (1996), China Miéville’s story Reports of Certain Events in London (2004), and Peter Ackroyd’s novel Hawksmoor (1985) that portray London as a liminal space and a gothic heterotopia.

  • Trials and Tribulations in London Below

    • Authors: Irina Rață
      Pages: 85 - 105
      Abstract: Neil Gaiman is a highly acclaimed British author of novels, short fiction, film scripts, graphic novels, and radio plays. His first novel, Neverwhere, was his attempt to fill in the blanks left by the television series with the same name, by writing down everything that he could not fit into the restrictive television format. This paper analyses the novel through the lens of structuralism and poststructuralism, in order to reveal inherent social critique, artfully concealed in a game of complex urban imagery, chronotopic structures and intertextual references.

  • Enemy: The City as a Fantastic Scenario

    • Authors: Luis Finol
      Pages: 107 - 131
      Abstract: Since the beginning of cinema in the early 20th century the city has been used as a significant context to portray a diverse variety of subjects and stories. The origin of big cities as artificial habitats constructed around the idea of order, caused the displacement of rural traditions and lifestyles to the urban landscape and, consequently, the rise of new conflicts for human beings. The expressions of the fantastic, formerly placed in the countryside, moved into the city and its contents and ideas were updated in order to incorporate the urban setting in the storytelling and narrative of this genre. The following article strives to investigate connections between the city as a modern context and its relations with the fantastic as represented in the film Enemy (Villeneuve, 2013).

  • Between Portland and Seattle. The Civilized Monster in Grimm and IZombie

    • Authors: Irene Raya Bravo, Sergio Cobo-Durán
      Pages: 133 - 152
      Abstract: Contemporary cities have become a recurring space in television fiction. Many of these cities represent real-life scenes, but they introduce fantastic beings, which sometimes destabilize the foundations of everyday life, meaning an inevitable comparison between the discourses of logos and mythos. With the aim of understanding how this dialectical relationship between cities and monsters is produced, this paper analyses the TV shows Grimm and iZombie, which are set in Portland and Seattle respectively. Both fictions show different types of fantastic beings, thus the first example recovers German fable monsters, while the second case explores the ravages of a zombie infection. Therefore, the goal of this study is the completion of narrative analysis, focused on the settings and characters, analyzing how they interact and if the perception of the real cities represented is changed.

  • «In My Restless Dreams, I See That Town»: A Narratological Perspective
           on the Fantastic City of Silent Hill.

    • Authors: Davide Carnevale
      Pages: 153 - 174
      Abstract: In analyzing the narrative modes of the videogame language, it is easy to record a recurring and well-established practice of extrapolating and reworking of thematic-formal motives and strategies coming from the vast mode of the fantastic, without these, however, being able to coalesce into – in almost all cases – a truly uncanny outcome, or to create that essential condition of deep unresolved uneasiness and uncertainty found, on the contrary, in the literary genre. Precisely in its appeal to the rich tradition of the nineteenth-twentieth-century fantastic, and because of its aesthetically pleasing refinement, absolutely original, all aimed at achieving a specific hesitant tension throughout the whole gaming experience, Silent Hill’s saga is one of the most successful examples in transposing the fantastic into the new media of the videogame. The fundamental importance of the spatial aspect, common to both the fantastic narrative and the videogame «text», finds expression in the imaginary little town that gives its name to the series, in one of the most scary and iconic depictions of the urban environment; a context, in other words, both familiar and reassuring, that turns into an inconceivable crossroads of disturbing alternative worlds and nightmare dimensions that in their continuous overlapping with and substitute for reality determine its inevitable crushing, to the point of denying the very possibility of its representability.

  • Pushkin at the Opera: Three Cases of Musical Transposition of the
           Fantastic. The Power of Music on the Fantastic

    • Authors: Elisabetta Fava
      Pages: 177 - 200
      Abstract: Music is a very constant feature of the fantastic in novels and theatrical plays; nevertheless, few studies investigate the relationship between music and the fantastic; there is no comparison with the flourishing criticism about literature. The aim of this article is to show the musical strategies of the fantastic and to explain how music creates a particularly 'fantastic code': through oddities in the harmonic development, overlapping of incompatible styles or timbres, and strange and 'abnormal' solutions also in the melodic lines. The samples I've chosen are all from Russian musical theater, written on Puškin texts almost contemporary among themselves, and show the importance and the role of music in rewriting fantastic novels as operatic plays.

  • The disturbing in everyday life: an analysis of the story «Hacia la
           alegre civilización de la capital» by Samanta Schweblin

    • Authors: Lia Cristina Ceron
      Pages: 201 - 220
      Abstract: This article attempts to understand how the disturbing effect is constructed in the story «Hacia la alegre civilización de la capital» through analysis of the techniques used by the Argentine writer Samanta Schweblin and to question how this story reveals manifestations of the fantastic in contemporary argentine literature. This is because the story, based in a recognizable everyday situation, takes place between a fantastic universe and a verisimilar, realist one, leading the reader to the disturbing perception that something unusual (which does not mean unreal) is happening in the story. To fully understand this scheme, is necessary to question how violence is configured in the story, especially the violence that determines the social relationship among the characters, suggesting a greater or lesser relation of domination and submission.

  • Possibility of the Impossible. The Fantastic Philosophy of Derrida

    • Authors: Juan Evaristo Valls Boix
      Pages: 221 - 243
      Abstract: The aim of this paper is to analyze Derrida’s later work through the logic of the fantastic genre in order to view it as a fantastic philosophy. The conceptual coincidences of Derridian thought with the terminological proposals of literary critics such as Roas and Campra, as well as the similarities between functions and dynamics that these elements display, indicate a contamination of philosophy by the devices of fantastic narrative. The article will also look at the way in which Derrida criticizes logocentrism and homohegemony through these devices. By doing this, fantastic literature’s claim of being a subversive and critical thinking is confirmed.

  • The Thought Turned Into Thing: René Magritte and his Imaginary Paradox
           Seen Through the Prism of the Fantastic

    • Authors: Ricardo González García
      Pages: 245 - 266
      Abstract: There are several reasons to suspect that fantastic literature will have conferred supernatural properties on figurative representations in some of its texts. This paper starts by analyzing such evidence and studies how, starting with The Castle of Otranto (1764), supernatural portraits and statues became prominent in 19th century literature. Our goal is to study the mechanisms that are used to prepare the reader for the incursion of these fantastic elements and to find repeated trends among the texts in which these appear.
