The metaphor that I'm speaking of is when Toto asks Marquez "why the light went on with the touch of a switch" (158).
Marquez answers the boy by saying, "Light is like water.
It fosters regeneration and reconciliation, as characters are changed by their experiences and discover truths about themselves and others.
In respect of the kindly weather mentioned above, 'As You Like It' does not feature this, but rather the "churlish chiding of the winter's wind".
Light is Like Water as Magical Realism Latin author Gabriel Garcia Marquez has written many short stories and novels that are considered to be Magical Realism.
Some of these works are "The Ghosts of August," One Hundred Years of Solitude," "A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings," "Chronicle of a Death Foretold," and "Light Is Like Water." In "Light Is Like Water" (December 1978), the use of various fantastic elements along with the realist elements is what defines this story as Magical Realism.Genie, the Wild Child discovered in 1970, somehow managed to survive for thirteen years even Deliberate Alienation: Surrealism and Magical Realism Critical thinking is a terrible thing. We live in an age where people are willing to look to anyone but themselves for advice on what they should think.Rather than figure out what their own opinions are, they trust the thinly-veiled slant of the television newscasters, the politics-masquerading-as-reporting of magazines like Time and Newsweek 1 2 Freakish Affairs When I am alone at my house and mysterious noises start, I immediately assume that something supernatural is occurring.A pastoral play is one which typically has its roots in the literature of Ancient Greece, and involves exiles from court life who flee to the refuge of the countryside4.This is obviously very clear in As You Like It as the majority of characters flee to the false friendships and "painted pomp" of flattering courtiers.The exclusive magical element of "Light Is Like Water" is light because Toto and Joel use it as water.The use of light as water comes into use when Marquez says that the light begins to "pour out of the broken light bulb" (158) Light having the same physical characteristic as water is the use of "an 'irreducible element' of magic, something we cannot explain according to the laws of the universe as we know them" (Faris 167).Writers today do research instead of writing about what they already know about.As the world has become more global, authors have become more full.The turning of man to 1865 to the present has changed.As authors have moved into a global world, their writing has become less regional and therefore less realistic.
