Abstract
  • In this thesis I examine two texts –William Faulkner’s Absalom, Absalom! and Fernando Vallejo’s Mi hermano el alcalde– not as they relate to studies of influence, nor the categorical imperatives of period studies, but as they relate in and to systems of archivization and narration. Within the novels are tropes of many elements of the Archive –the Archive as place, authority, and document of the past– that also serve as the structuring principle whereby the principle narrators are able to narrate.
