The essay analyzes the symbolic and ideological dimension of the city in the Trilogía del siglo XX, a set of three novels: En busca de Klingsor (1999), No será la tierra (2003) and El fin de la locura (2006), written by the Mexican writer Jorge Volpi (*1968). It is an approach that aspires to get closer to the reality of human beings through their most archetypical space, the city. It also aims to envision the city through the lenses of the collective soul of the urban species. The city is not only an important referent for the author, it is also a physical space, the place where action takes place and the essential territory for the modernity and the postmodernity. The study equally visualizes the city as an urban means that determines the way of life of the characters at the same time that it is presented as an ubiquitous environment that allows us to interpret some of the ideologies of mankind, as the city is not by chance the most comprehensive human production. The research of these novels takes us to pulse the associations and contingencies that are present in the biotic structures of human beings and in the new cultural superstructures of our time.
