The main goal of this paper is to examine Ramon Saizarbitoria’s novel 100 metro (1976) from the perspective of memory studies. In order to do so, we will describe some key concepts, and also some narratological tools that will give us a means of examining the literary representation of memory, which fulfils different functions in the novel: protagonist’s individual memories in the face of death reveal a character that is used to losing, and this makes the fugitive more human. By means of the contrast between different narrative levels and voices, anonymous citizens’ chitchats reflect the process of constructing and the functioning of communicative memory of the conflict and repression.
