Summary  Through a creative artefact and critical exegesis, this thesis explores the interconnections between trauma literature, magical realism, and elegy. Drawing on various theoretical fields including postcolonialism and feminist theory, the thesis contributes an original intervention into the field of magical realist scholarship, arguing for the continuing significance of the magical realist mode as a politically engaged and subversive literature.
