“Witches and Wonders: Magical Realism in Modern Greek Literature” Contemporary Greek literary production presents an affinity with magical realism in Latin American Literature, in particular the novels by Allende and Marquez. The metaphysical world coexists right next to the real, and magic is merged into the time and space of the narrative. This case is made clear in Modern Greek literature in novels by Meimaridi, Fakinou and Eleutheriou.
