The correct answers are "magical realism" and "authorial reticence".
Magical realism is a style of fiction writing that takes aspects of the everyday world and adds magical elements as if they were ordinary. The concept of authorial reticence is related to magical realism, as it refers to the lack of an opinion about the accuracy and credibility of events such as the magical elements in a story. Therefore, the narrator accepting absurds as ordinary in "There’s a Man in the Habit of Hitting Me on the Head with an Umbrella" is known as magical realism or authorial reticence.
