Abstract

The short story ‘Green Boots’ Cave’ introduces an inexplicable phenomenon – that one might experience the events of an entire lifetime within a few moments – and plays this idea against recognizable, ‘real’ historical events. It follows Todorov’s notion of the process of reader adaptation to the inexplicable (as opposed to hesitation), described in The Fantastic: A Structural Approach to a Literary Genre.
