This paper is an analysis of nineteenth-century Latin American proposals to shape a model ofcitizenship founded on fantasy hosted in romantic horror literature. Their monsters, landscapes andreflections are mirrors in which they confront the vilified indignities of individualism. They augur the fall ofcitizenship as a model for inhabiting the world, in the face of the other monstrously made-up model; theindividual-mass of the techno-scientific pact. Silenced voices, sentenced to the oblivion of the attic thatpersist in their vital purpose, to generate a network that strengthens the sense of the common. Praxis andreflection will try to converge in a synthesis of what we could learn from ourselves, from the communalcoexistence that hosts the fantastic literature that emerged in the 19th century
