What are the roles of Magic realism in the novels, “The House of the Spirits” by Isabel Allende and “Like Water for Chocolate” by Laura Esquivel?

In the novels, “The House of the Spirits” by Isabel Allende and “Like Water for Chocolate” by Laura Esquivel, magic realism plays not only as one of their major themes, but also important roles in each novel, albeit there are similarities and differences between them. Magic realism is defined as a feature of a piece of writing that includes anything out of the ordinary. Isabel Allende’s “The House of the Spirits tells of the life and events a family experiences in a span of 50 years, through the journals of a spiritually-gifted character. Laura Esquivel’s “Like Water for Chocolate”, however, tells the story of a girl, destined to follow a tradition where she, as the youngest, has to take care of her mother until the day she dies, who, in conflict to her mother’s wishes and to the said tradition, falls in love. In both cases, magic realism is definitely a theme in each novel and also acts as a bond between certain events in the story. There are, however, differences between the roles of magic realism in each piece of literature as well.
