LULO C, Mario. The novel of the dictatorship's period in Chile. Alpha [online]. 2009, n.29, pp.41-54. ISSN 0718-2201.

For many critics and scholars the great novel of the dictatorship's period in Chile still remains a pending matter. This article, on the contrary, hypothesizes on the existence of a significant number of novéis published in Chile between 1977 and 2006, which out of their fragmentary character and peculiarity give a proper account of the causes and consequences of the coup d'état held on September llth 1973. The article seeks to set a preliminary basis for an epistemological discussion and further major research about the role of the Chilean novel, in the historical context of post modernity, during and after the dictatorship's era.

Keywords : Chilean novel; dictatorship; memory; post modernity.
