The figure of Von Archimboldi, an enigmatic German writer, is the secret thread that sews one to each other of the five "parts" that compose 2666, without doubt, Roberto Bolaño’s masterpiece. 2666 is the date of the remote perspective in which we must arrange the impre-ssive tangle of destinies, characters, generic and plot lines, a wide constellation marked by the sign of loss and oblivion, of insignificance, of useless excess, of mistake and misunderstanding. From the ruins of Europe, travelling dizzily, to the Sonora desert, where there an endless sequence of killings of women has been happening, the novel conveys us on an abysmal journey, muffled among laughter, by a culture and a civilization in defeat, in which literature continues to invoke the simulacrum of a redemption.
