RODRIGUEZ FREIRE, Raúl. Literature and power: On the production of testimony in Latin America. Atenea (Concepc.) [online]. 2010, n.501, pp. 113-126. ISSN 0718-0462.

The primary objective of this paper is to give an account of the usefulness/uselessness of the definition of testimonial narrative, and to signal its origins or emergence dating from the nineteen sixties. On the other hand, I show that the pretension of seeking its genealogy in colonial chronicles and discourses is to misunderstand its function. Finally, from writings of Giorgio Agamben, I propose a different way to read Latin American testimonial narrative.
