Summaries
Bowker Data Service Summary
The colonization of Spanish America spawned a literature in which prosaic accounts and official press releases were mixed with reports of real and imaginary travellers. These two case studies represent two types of imagining.
Main Description
The reception of the 'discovery', conquest and colonisation of Spanish America spawned a rich imaginative literature. The case studies presented in this book represent two distinct types of imagining by two diametrically different groups: literate, and in some cases erudite Europeans, and a vanquished native nobility. The former endeavoured to make sense of Spain's (and Portugal's) 'marvellous possessions' in the New World with the limited conceptual tools at their disposal, the latter to construct a colonial identity based on their shared ancestral memory while incorporating elements from the even more wondrous Hispanic culture that had overwhelmed them.
