Abstract

A study of Elena Poniatowska’s La noche de Tlatelolco as a hybrid text that combines the genres of testimonio and chronicle to reconcile the relationship between history and literature. This article centers on how readership of La noche de Tlatelolco permits a democratic practice that confronts official discourse, particularly the PRI party’s narratives of legitimization, while also fostering an engagement with the original political impulse behind the student movement of 1968.
