The fantasy genre is not uniform, but has rather developed distinct varieties over time as authors have innovated on and responded to the traditions established by previous works. Fantasy is a work that evokes a sense of wonder in the reader; that has some relationship with traditional tales, myths and legends: that evokes the belief that is presented as real, not a dream, vision, or possible hallucination and that usually takes place in a secondary world with the inner consistency of reality. This paper focuses on the perception between fantasy and reality in the prominent fiction of Anita Desai. As a genre, fantasy seeks to validate the unconscious world of dreams, to insist not merely on its existence in the human psyche, but on its essential, vital presence.
