The Fantastic. Stylistic Elements in the Textual Sequences. In the attempt of describing some stylistic procedures which make possible the unity of a text with at least one non-verisimile sequence, I analysed Mihai Eminescu’s The Avatars of Pharao Tlá. The purpose of this article is to show how name and verbal repetitions, the descriptions which create space and time, and the construction and de-construction of the characters’ names manage to create (textual) unity and sequence cohesion.
Keywords: description, fantastic, repetition, space, textual sequence, time

Motto: “In the fantastic image the language provides something to stand in for the inexpressible. The fantastic encodes into language what cannot be said, says what cannot be known.” (David Sandner, The fantastic Sublime)
