Summary/Abstract: This paper aims at reviewing some of the fantastic literature theoretical aspects which have been developed not only by the critics but also by some authors who wrote fantastic novels as well. Our purpose is to present the different variables, as well as to point out the differences related to the concepts regarding imagination, fantasy and supernatural. The diversity lies not only on the interpretation made from the novels over time and in different geographical areas, but also due to the several translations attributed to the genre when it has first appeared.
