ABSTRACT
The article examines Mario Benedetti's poem "El Olvido Está Lleno de Memoria." In the poem, Benedetti, establishes an explicit connection between politically motivated historical reconstruction and notions of collective memory and amnesia. In Benedetti's poetry, there are also portrayals of the various participants that embody repression in a repressive society such as torturers from the police force or the army and those who support them.
