FUENTES RETAMAL, Pablo. In search of traces, evidence and signs:: a meticulous look at three anarchist characters from Manuel Rojas' narrative tetralogy. Izquierdas (Santiago) [online]. 2015, n.25, pp.120-142. ISSN 0718-5049.

This article examines three characters from Manuel Rojas' narrative tetralogy for the purpose of revealing some people's identities whose inspiration was useful for the narrator to shape the fiction in novels. Since Rojas' diegesis is placed temporarily in de first decades of the twentieth century during the validity of Jaramillo's Law (legal regulation which empowers authority to exile every activist who may have ideas that are contrary to the state security) the narrator accepts some protection and camouflages the writer González Vera, the poet Gómez Rojas, and the doctor Juan Gandulfo between the pages of the story. This narrative procedure keeps these anarchists' ideas and projects safe, considering that, making their names and activities evident would represent a problem for the state security apparatus.

Keywords : Manuel Rojas; narrative tetralogy; Jaramillo's Law; anarchist characters; minutiae.
