Stratégies Narratives de la Communication par l’Intermédiaire du Fantastique

Mirela Gheorghe


The fantastic crisis affects the story forms and the expressive resources of language, that
become themselves subjects of the fantastic, questioning the boundaries between fiction and reality.

the fantastic, designating the textual strategies meant to convey the crisis of reality postulated by the
mimesis. Readers, authors and characters are found within a text type which, although proclaims itself
as fictional, it "erodes" the identities, worlds and discourses. Thus, the fantastic story exhibits the
narrative processes and the elements of intertextuality, permanently placing between the brackets the
border between the world in which the story is told and the one about which the story is told.
