Poétiques du réalisme merveilleux chez Jacques Stephen Alexis et Miguel Bonnefoy

Aura Marina Boadas    Universidad Central de Venezuela, Venezuela    



The critical comments about the narrative work of the Haitian writer Jacques Stephen Alexis (1922-1961) and the French-Venezuelan writer Miguel Bonnefoy (1986) establish a connection between the production of these narrators and the notion of marvelous or magical realism. In the following pages, we aim at analyzing the specific strategies used by these authors in their narrative works to set up a link with the real and the marvelous, in the light of the existing conceptualizations concerning this aesthetic. Furthermore, we want to read these results in view of the following target, which has been outlined by Alexis and Bonnefoy in critical essays and interviews: marvelous realism has been adopted to model their narrative works.
