MERCIER, Claire  and  ROCCO, Bernardo. The Genealogical Unveilings in Roberto Bolaño. Alpha [online]. 2017, n.45, pp.185-200. ISSN 0718-2201.

The essay analyzes the genealogical articulation of literature, madness and violence present in La literatura nazi en América and 2666 by Roberto Bolaño, with the aim to understand how these recurring problems in his work are reworked by literary mimesis. Also, this dimension shows the performance of a narrative consciousness that uses the genealogical articulation as a critical way of approaching reality. Consequently, both novels show a worldview that finds by genealogy signs that explain the historical processes of the global phenomenon of violence.

Keywords : genealogy; literature; madness; violence; criticism.
