Fiction in Literature: Hyperrealism

Fiction in Literature: Hyperrealism

v + T – normal size

Novels are sometimes accused of being fictional, and I say “accusation” here; Because fiction in the context used by some people means more slander than a reference to a creative artistic element or tool in literary writing, meaning that the novel is a story far from reality and woven from imagination. Many people overlook that fantasy is of two types: an explicit and direct fantasy like what we hear about, and the second type is originally a bold reality, but it is disguised as fantasy, characterized by excessive realism, and we often find it in novels, especially in the literature of magical realism.

Sometimes it is not appropriate to talk about reality in its familiar and colloquial language, perhaps because no one will be interested in hearing or understanding what we would like to say; Because this is the reality that they know, what new will we give them about it?

For example, a story such as the transformation of a human being into an insect in Franz Kafka’s masterpiece “Transformation” at first glance appears to be a story of myths of imagination, as it is impossible for a human being to transform into an insect! This is true, but the story is not fictional in the common sense of the word. The only “explicit” fictional element in the novel is the transformation of a human being into an insect, and this is not the point of the novel at all. A being stripped of itself, a being emotionally and socially separated from its surroundings.

Symbolism in literature is not just a simulation of reality or an opportunity to interpret it.
