Abstract

Fifty years after the student slaughter in 1968 in Mexico City, Elena Poniatowska’s La noche de Tlatelolco still represents the narrative archetype of the massacre. This essay aims to analyse the mythical, structural and social elements of the work that, from the intersubjective experience of the silenced periphery, outlines a new methodology for the reconstruction of historical memory. By challenging the State project for the marginalization of the residual voices, the plaza’s poetics turns the testimonio’s polyphony into an aesthetic strategy of political denounce.
