Desert, Capitalism and male values: the combination of feminicide forces in “The part of the crimes” of 2666


Spanish, Portuguese



The political and economic social location of Santa Teresa, the citizen of Roberto Bolaño’s novel 2666, is conspicuous; this test analyses the femicides described in “The part of the crimes” of this novel from the perspective of the spatial location that has key implications for the cultural conditions and ethical values of society described above. The concept of non-place of the anthropologist Marc Augé, who pointed out that in transit spaces the values were fluctuating; the desert of values, emotions and empathy, the concept developed by philosopher Gilles Lipovetsky; as well as the male and misogyny explained by chicana writer and essay Gloria Anzaldúa, help to understand the existence of a particularly fertilised environment for femicide.
