Realismo fantástico e literatura fantástica

Realismo fantástico e literatura fantástica | Litteris | Scoop.it
Ajude a turma a entender o que é o realismo fantástico - também conhecido como realismo mágico ou maravilhoso - e peça que escrevam um texto neste gênero.

 

Escritores "fantásticos"

O escritor moçambicano Mia Couto é um deles. Sua obra é marcada pela interpretação dos acontecimentos marcantes de seu país a partir de um viés fantástico.

 

O argentino Julio Cortázar escreveu livros em que a ambigüidade e a fragmentação surgem para criar enredos alegóricos, em que a realidade cotidiana é abalada pelo surgimento de um acontecimento quase inexplicável.


Outro exemplo que você pode mostrar à turma é o brasileiro Murilo Rubião, um dos mais importantes autores do realismo mágico em nossa literatura

Digital será menos sobre notícias e mais sobre conhecimento

 

Conheça uma experiência interessante sobre o desligamento definitivo do jornal impresso e a transição para o jornal digital.

 

O que me parece claro é que, provavemente a migração analógico-digital poderá revigorar-se e ganhar novos horizontes, pois a maior ameaça à sobrevivência do jornal impresso, é a mudança de paradigmas tecnológicos e econômicos.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, January 13, 2013 2:53 PM

Here's a quick article that reminds us to craft or keep our stories fresh by using 3 principles:

  1. Know your characters well
  2. Make it your mission to surprise
  3. Embrace curveballs


So what does this mean for busines storytelling?

  1. The more you know your customers, the better off your storytelling will be -- because you will be connecting with their needs, desires, and aspirations.
  2. Surprise and novelty are critical to any story -- don't forget to add these elements to keep your audiences engaged or you will end up boring and undifferentiated in the marketplace.
  3. Embrace curveballs -- well As Gilligan says, being open to change and constant discovery yields results. That's because as you and your customers change, so your stories need to change also.


There are other insights to this short piece for you to enjoy on this Sunday afternoon.


Many thanks to fellow curator Giuseppe Mauriello for sending me this post!

Interesting ideas that may even apply to the business environment.

Karen Dietz's comment, January 16, 2013 11:42 AM
Yes Ron, I think the article does go way beyond storytelling. Which is perfect -- because a business's storytelling needs to align with your values and activities. Considering these 3 principles could help that alignment.

Robin Good's curator insight, January 16, 2013 4:30 AM


Good article by Hamish McKenzie on PandoDaily, where he identifies seven key trends that may shake and change the way we consume, buy, produce and organize information online.


Among them I see trends n.5, 6 and 7 to be particularly strong. These are:

- Longform

- Curation

- Micropayments

All three are rapidly growing after several years of silent "incubation", and they all look ripe for becoming prime-time shows.



Interesting. Resourceful. 7/10

Read first, Pay later.

Total Boox is building a new platform for ebook distribution and consumption. A reader does not have to purchase a book upfront. He downloads the book into his tablet device, and pays for the portion he actually reads, when he reads it.

This revolutionary concept improves reader-book matching, and creates significant unique advantages to readers, publishers and authors.

Luciana Viter's insight:

A great idea!
