A retrospective view of the events of 1968 in Mexico allows us to observe how the construction of the memory of those events has been a process that, beginning shortly after the Tlatelolco massacre, has been nourished by a series of successive contributions that have built up a complex framework of texts, images, and discourses, in which the representation of violence has played a key factor. The literary representation of those months of revolt and repression has been analyzed by historians and literary critics in recent studies that have privileged different points of view. Within this very broad framework of interpretations, my aim is to show the role of violence in the narrative representations of 1968, to propose a reading of some of the novels on this topic that will help to trace new paths of interpretation.

Remembering Violence. The narrative of '68 in Mexico

Stefano Tedeschi
2022

Abstract

A retrospective view of the events of 1968 in Mexico allows us to observe how the construction of the memory of those events has been a process that, beginning shortly after the Tlatelolco massacre, has been nourished by a series of successive contributions that have built up a complex framework of texts, images, and discourses, in which the representation of violence has played a key factor. The literary representation of those months of revolt and repression has been analyzed by historians and literary critics in recent studies that have privileged different points of view. Within this very broad framework of interpretations, my aim is to show the role of violence in the narrative representations of 1968, to propose a reading of some of the novels on this topic that will help to trace new paths of interpretation.
