Summary Most attempts to define the intellectual significance of marvelous realism have been framed by a focus on postcolonialism1 and postmodernism2. These approaches see it as a postcolonial assertion of a culture's identity and reduce it to a "going back" to an ancestral past that persists as a stubborn presence within certain geographies. This essay develops the proposition that the significance of marvelous realism goes beyond social and cultural perspectives - that it is, essentially, a mestizo ontology. Differently than the vast majority of theoretical incursions in this field, which only allude to the marvelous or fictional aspects of the movement, I will inquire instead on its singular appreciation of the real. By so doing I honor the wishes of Gabriel García Márquez, who was adamant in his defense of the real in and through his works.
