Hi, I am looking for someone to write an article on the unusual narration style of aimee bender Paper must be at least 1250 words. Please, no plagiarized work! Bender’s work falls in the category of Magical Realism, which is a sort of a wrapping which is done to cover the actual present. A form of fiction in which the elements of magic are blended in the realm of reality in order to get a better understanding out of it. The explanation of the elements of magic is such that it allows the real and the unreal to be understood in the same way. Bender’s use of realism, magical realism, and surrealism to provide an amusing description and interpretation of old subjects such as death, hate, sex. She is a magician with words and uses words as an entry point to the storyline.
Drunken Mimi is a story about an imp and a mermaid. In the story, Aimee shows how a mermaid is able to have sensual pleasure, which is a common human experience, through the stimulation of her hair, which of course is a magical description of very human experience. The fairy tale characters of her stories consist of an element of simplicity. It is because of the fact that these characters lack setting in terms of geography, history and time. In another short story naming The Healer, Bender’s description of the story and the characters is like: “There were two mutant girls in the town: one had a hand made of fire and the other had a hand made of ice. Everyone else’s hands were normal. The girls first met in elementary school and were friends for about three weeks…… one afternoon, on the playground, the fire girls grabbed hold of the nice girl’s hand and Poof just like that, each equalized the other. Their hands dissolved into regular flesh exit mutant enter normal…..” (Girl 121). The story is about two mutant girls who are mutant and their skills are of complementary nature. The subsequent connection that the fire girl establishes with a boy who is from her .high school and the communal prohibitions, takes a person back down the memory lane to the period of adolescence. Afterward, it again brings back to adulthood. The story is a sort of a reminder, enabling us to recall the ordinary nature of our fears.
