BEJARANO, Alberto. Republic of foundlings. Genealogies of orphanage in Roberto Bolaños 2666. Nómadas [online]. 2010, n.33, pp. 31-41. ISSN 0121-7550.
A new approach to the concept of republic as "free" political body in Latin America is constructed on the basis of a Philosophical re-reading of Roberto Bolaños novel 2666 (2004), particularly going through the character of Lalo Cura, a policeman descendant of a family history of five generations of women successively raped since 1865 and who represents orphanage. In the analysis the republic appears as a regime of orphanage. In conclusion, fiction power resides on permanently re-write the history, giving us different study perspectives.
