Abstract

Fantasy is a genre of fiction in literature that includes magical and supernatural elements as a part of the plot, setting or theme. Mythology and folklore often play a important part in fantasy literature. Fantasy is as old as the fictional utopia’s and its satiric forms have an important precursor in the extraordinary countries portrayed in jonathan swift’s gulliver’s travel(1726).Among the notable twentieth-century writers of fantasy are C.S.Lewis and J.R.R.Tolkien ( The hobbit , The lord of the rings); whose works incorporate materials from classical, biblical, and medieval sources. Ursula le guin  is a major author of both science fiction and works of fantasy. In the beginning, fantasy literature written for children, such as Alice in wonderland, the hobbit also attracted adult audience.Realistic fiction is a genre consisting ofstories that could have actually occurred to people or animals in a believing setting.
