Like Water for ChocolateMagic Realism: a style of fiction that has a realistic view of the modern world and also adds magical elements.Magic realism, chiefly Latin-American narrative strategy that is characterized by the matter-of-fact inclusion of fantastic or mythical elements into seemingly realistic fiction. 1.List 4 examples of magic realism and explain what happens.1. When Tita accidently got her tears into the cake batter and then the next day when all the guests were eating the cake at the wedding, they all started to cry too, and no one could break the “magic spell” of tears and feeling sick. All of the guests went and puked over the river. Tita’s tears had put some magical spell on all the people to drown in their sorrows and feel sick. 2. When Pedro brings Tita flowers for her first anniversary of being head cook, she goes into the back room and puts the flowers on her chest and a magical voice was talking to her and telling her not to throw the flowers out like her mother had asked. 3 stripes of blood also appear on Tita’s chest from the flowers. I believe it was Nacha’s ghost that was talking to her. 3. When Tita gets sick and has not been able to even speak, and the Doctor had not been able to find away to cure her and end her breakdown, he invites Chenca over and she brings her a cup of soup that is a “magical beef broth” and the magical broth ended up curing her sickness and ends her breakdown. 4. When Tita and Pedro are alone in the barn in the dark and start kissing, Chencha and Rosaura are looking out the window and see fire exploding and lightning. Chencha says that it is “the ghost of the dead women” who was creating the explosion. It is the ghost of Mama Elena angry that Pedro and Tita are together behind Rosaura’s back. 2. Explain the tradition that keeps Tita at home with Mama Elena.
