Abstract

Estrella distante and 2666, novels of Roberto Bolaño are crucial to understand the reforms in the violence against women in the context of Chilean dictatorship and the Mexican Neoliberalism too. These two narrations expose the patriarchal mandatory violence realized in two different sociopolitical contexts. Bolaño s narrative proposes itself as an Antigone s mission, a task of the contemporary literature opposed, as the tragic heroin, to the repressive condition of Mourning. Also this mission confronts the code of literary representation and proposes a literature where the signs are confronting political, economic and patriarchal violence.
