Ist die Figur im Roman schlicht wahnsinnig oder betrunken, sieht sie vielleicht Gespenster, Traumbilder, Halluzinationen? Oder geschieht da tatsächlich etwas Unwahrscheinliches, etwas Unheimliches? Nach Tzvetan Todorov ist diese
Unschlüssigkeit des Lesers ein wesentliches Merkmal der Wirkungsweise fantastischer

Literatur. Anhand zahlreicher Beispiele von E. T. A. Hoffmann über Nikolai Gogol und Théophile Gautier bis zu Edgar Allan Poe zeigt er in seiner Studie, auf welche Weise fantastische Texte diese Verunsicherung hervorrufen und inwiefern sie im Rückgriff auf Übernatürliches gesellschaftliche Tabus brechen und die Zensur umgehen konnten.

Todorov nimmt Einflüsse der russischen Formalisten auf und verarbeitet auch Ergebnisse der strukturalistischen Untersuchungen seines Lehrers Roland Barthes. Sein Buch ist der - durchaus kontrovers diskutierte - Ausgangspunkt speedy aller seither unternommenen Bestimmungsversuche des Fantastischen.
