Abstract
As postcolonial subjects, Indonesian novelists have diverse and layered discursive experiences. In the history of Indonesian literature, there was a textual dominance of magism (in classic literature) and realism (in modern literature). Over time, Indonesian literature became influenced by what has been called magic realism. This article seeks to examine how the postcolonial subject has brought this realist literature into the framework of magic realist literature. This has been done by analysing several Indonesian novels using the theory of magic realism.From its explorations, drawing on randomly selected data, this article identifies three trends in the postcolonial subject's dealing with magic realism: magism coordinating rationalism, magism being parallel with realism, and balanced contestation between rationalism and magism
