Abstract

The fictional tool of magic realism has gained popularity even as it deviates from the foundational premise of the genre of novel. The philosophical approach that justifies this kind of fiction questions the representation of reality through the Enlightenment mode of reason and logic. Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni, a leading Indian diasporic writer based in the US employs this narrative mode in her novel The Mistress of Spices and redoubles the effect through her beautiful poetic prose.
