Abstract/Description: In this study, I evaluate and explore the role of the antihero and the subordinate male in the patriarchal society as a marginalized voice throughout discourse at the end of the twentieth century. These discourses are first-person accounts of abuse of human rights, violence and social oppression and form an intricate part of testimonial literature. In the Latin American novels that I explore, the antihero faces marginalization due to dominant discourses with the structures of society and he lives an exclusion from meaningful participation in society, partly because the labor market does not or cannot accommodate him. This proves to be one of the most dangerous forms of oppression. This study investigates and demonstrates the antihero as an active participant in society. Furthermore, this research demonstrates the study of the representation of male images that transgress and deconstruct hegemonic models of masculinity.
