Relatos y relaciones de Hispanoamérica colonial
"Olivera makes accessible a series of vital texts from the sixteenth century and provides an extremely informative introduction to the texts, their authors, and the worldview of the period. This book includes valuable primary material for both student and professor and should be essential reading for any undergraduate course on the discovery and early stages of colonialism in the New World.
—Sixteenth Century Journal
"This book represents one of the best overviews of a very ample body of [early colonial narratives] that few readers would ever have the opportunity to read themselves.... The editor's sound introductory materials for the entire volume and for each selection... also make it innovative and different from other [anthologies] I have seen."
—John E. Worth, Coordinator, Randell Research Center, Florida Museum of Natural History, University of Florida
This anthology of foundational sixteenth-century Spanish-language texts presents the European side of the discovery and colonization of the New World. Otto Olivera has chosen representative selections from the works of eighteen authors, including Garcilaso de la Vega, Bartolom de Las Casas, Bernal Daz del Castillo, Hernn Corts, and Alvar Nez Cabeza de Vaca. Their writings present an impressive panorama of the first years of a real New World that could compete with any portrayed in European novels of chivalry or travel. To put these texts in historical context, Olivera has written an introduction that links the literature of colonization in its first century to the classical and medieval myths that helped shape Spaniards' thinking about the New World. He also provides a brief history of the discovery and conquest and a discussion of the social organization of the Spanish colonies.
