This article reviews the pedagogical practices and experiences of undergraduate students upon confronting the emblematic text of the 1960s, La noche de Tlatelolco (1971; Massacre in Mexico, 1975), by Elena Poniatowska. Students are guided to consider ethics, aesthetics and politics as conceptual vectors to help them problematize this historic event materialized into a literary text, through its borders, linguistic and ideological representational nature, to evaluate the intricacies of contextual knowledge.
