POBLETE ALDAY, Patricia. Contemporary Narrative Chronicle: Methodological Focuses, Demarcations and Challenges. Lit. mex [online]. 2020, vol.31, n.1, pp.133-153.  Epub 24-Ago-2020. ISSN 2448-8216.

Current narrative chronicles have some particularities that make their study interesting, and also force us, as scholars, to rethink our analytical strategies and tools. On this hypothesis, in this text we study a series of contemporary Mexican chronicles, which thematize the different edges of violence and evil, to propose an interdisciplinary critical reading, which is what we believe this type of texts requires. Having as a comparative axis the classic horror stories, we will focus here on two of the most striking aspects of these chronicles: at the thematic level, the re-elaboration of the motive of the “bad place”; and at the level of the structure, the value of silences and gaps, both narrative and referential.
