Dreams are a recurring form of testimonial narratives, although this isn´t sufficiently explored. They constitute a difficult crossing point between the indelible irreversibility of the past and the indeterminate contingency of the future. Uncomfortable remains in relation to the master story of the testimony: a story that usually leans towards the restoration of meaning, towards the affirmation of the word about negation and silence. In dreams, on the contrary, what seems to emerge, what is represented, is the eternal return of horror, an uncollapsed sign of the rhetoric of the brand established by the “traumatic event”. Dreams that are mentions of a “non-biodegradable” rest, whose durability is its secret, its oblique offering. In this work, some notes are provided to begin configuring a field of attention regarding the dream story in the testimonial narrative: of the Ayacucho altarpieces of Edilberto Jiménez and the dreams collected as evidence in the Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Peru to the poetry of Julián Axat and the prose of Ángela Urondo Raboy.
