En Nombre de Ninguna de Rosabetty Muñoz: el duelo como bautismo

Translated title of the contribution: En Nombre de Ninguna by Rosabetty Muñoz: Duel as baptism

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The corpus of study of this article is the latest writings produced by the Chilean poet Muñoz Rosabetty, entitled En Nombre de Ninguna and published in 2008. In this work, the poet presents various unnamed speakers, although some are identified with loss in the context of kinship and community relations. These can be used to interrogate the way in which the text articulates the relationship between the various voices and the registration of a name, which enables loss to be outlawed; or how En Nombre de Ninguna through the act of nomination makes redemption possible. The hypothesis to be analysed in this article is the assumption that the text presents polyphony as a mechanism for loss, not only for presenting loss but also performing a duel, which is understood in its religious dimension as the rite of baptism and the registration of a name.
