THE MAIN CHARACTERISTICS OF HEROES IN THE BRITISH PROSE OF "MAGIC" REALISM
Shamsutdinova N. Z.

Annotation

The article deals with the main characteristics of heroes in the novels and short-stories of contemporary English writers, traditionally considered to be samples of "magic" realism. The terms of unlikeness (freakishness) and supernormality, used to characterize the personages of contemporary British prose, are the key notions of Latin-American fiction criticism. The essay considers the idea of the impact of Latin-American fiction (in particular, works by G. Garcia Marquez) on the prose of British "magic" realists.
