A man fertile, married and loyal who wants to be a father and to take care of a child, but he can’t materialize his desire – this is the argument for the novel Los últimos hijos by Antonio Ramos Revillas of Monterrey, along the border of Mexico and the USA. It is not a common story in Mexican literature, so I propose to study this novel from the perspective of new masculinity and new fatherhood, as an alternative to the traditional forms. My intention is to define the proximity or the demarcation for Los últimos hijos about new or traditional masculinity and fatherhood in Mexican narrative of the North, with intertwining views constructed by the literary and genre studies written on this topic in Latin America.
