To remember, to resist. : An analysis of the representation of the individual and collective memory in Amuleto (1999) by Roberto Bolaño (English)
Abstract [es]

En este trabajo vamos a analizar la representación de la memoria, individual y colectiva, en la novela Amuleto (1999) del novelista y poeta chileno Roberto Bolaño, con la finalidad de mostrar la importancia de la memoria para la construcción de la novela. La investigación está dividida principalmente en dos apartados: un análisis narratológico y un análisis sobre teorías de la memoria. En la primera parte del análisis se colocarán los diferentes actantes en un esquema actancial para evidenciar sus respectivas funciones e importancia dentro del texto. En la segunda parte se analizarán más en profundidad algunos apartados de la novela a partir del esquema actancial, con la ayuda principalmente, de las teorías e ideas sobre la memoria de Maurice Halbwachs, Paul Ricoeur y Márcio Seligmann-Silva. Hemos llegado a la conclusión de que Auxilio, la protagonista de la novela,  construye, con la ayuda de su memoria individual, una representación histórica de México de los años sesenta y setenta. A partir de ello, la novela de Bolaño se presenta como una narración importante, puesto que está en contraste con otras versiones de un hito en la historia mexicana.

Abstract [en]

In this paper we will analyse the representation of memory, individual and collective in the novel Amuleto (1999) by Chilean novelist and poet Roberto Bolaño, with the intention of showing the importance of memory for the construction of the novel. The investigation is primarily divided into two parts: a narratological analysis and an analysis of theories regarding memory. In the first part the different actants will be placed in an actancial model to evidence their function and importance in the text. In the second part we will do an in-depth analyses of some passages of the novel, according to the actancial model with the help of theories on memory presented by among others Maurice Halbwachs, Paul Ricoeur, Márcio Seligmann-Silva and Héctor Schmucler. We have come to the conclusion that Auxilio, the protagonist of the novel, constructs a representation of the history of Mexico in the sixties and the seventies. Accordingly, the novel by Bolaño is an important narration seeing that it represents a contrast to other versions of a milestone in Mexican history.
