La sicaresca colombiana o la crónica de una Muerte ordinaria

Abstract : In the 80s and 90s, thanks to the prospering drug trafficking, appeared in Colombia a new type of criminals, hired killers that the cartels recruited among disillusioned teenagers coming from the poorest districts of Medellín. With this widespread violence, death became common, omnipresent and threatening in the Colombian society. This phenomenon interested the literary sphere and several authors started to focus the story of their novels on this violence originated by drug, until appeared the word “sicaresca”, inspired by the “picaresca” of the Spanish Golden Age, to define that literary genre. Through three novels, Rosario Tijeras by Jorge Franco, Leopardo al sol by Laura Restrepo y La Virgen de los sicarios by Fernando Vallejo, this article will first analyse the different facets of Death in the “sicaresca” and then, question its sacred or ordinary aspect, and the unprecedented duel which seems to pit life and death in that narrative.
