EN
Among prose writings of the recent period, observable is an increased presence of novels and short stories mixing a realistic image of the reality with elements of fantasy. Numerous examples of this phenomenon testify to that writers and their characters find it rather hard to afford senses and administer justice to the world within the real, transferring these functions into the domain of the fantastic. A sense of helplessness is thus also expressed against global processes which individuals have ceased to control. A traditional realism is unattainable as the world cannot be comprehended and explained any more without a stock of legends and myths stored and activated in the sphere of fantasy.
