The role of silence in the dictatorship novel

The intention of this work is to analyse the semantic rule of silence in the dictatorship novel. The question is that silence is not just a mere absence of sound, but it is also a powerful communicative resource with its own semanticity and pragmatic norms of use. The analysis effected in this study confirm the hypothesis that silence in Latin American novel is a comunicative tool capable of acquiring a particular persuasive force in the context of the literary image of dictatorship.
