Résumé anglais This article purports to analyze the novel Los ejércitos (2006) by Colombian author Evelio Rosero Diago. The interest to analyze this literary work responds to the form in which the novel explores new points of enunciation, getting away from the cliche ways in which violence is referenced in Colombia: data, statistics, and terrifying anecdotes that produce an ephemeral indignation. On the contrary, Rosero investigates new forms of language combined with uncommon narration of daily realities which provides us with the necessary distancing from the pathological familiarization with violence to which we have grown accustomed. This novel arrives in the field of Colombian literature as a distanced examination of the violent novel and its narrative tools. Consequently, the purpose of this article is to analyze the system of characters as well as time and space to elucidate the manner in which they evoke memory, revelations, and, most of all, the way in which narration of memory affects the perception of the present and expectations for the future. In this way, the reader is able to understand the link between the past, present, and future as different types of time that together constitute historical consciousness.
