Translated title of the contribution: Amarilis and war as an element of identification

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle in a journalpeer-review


The aim of this essay is to show war’s presence in the case of a colonial Peruvian text:
Epístola de Amarilis a Belardo. In this work, at IX and X Petrarchan Stays, dedicated to
the Epístola’s author biography, the Indian presents three warlike episodes: conquest,
war against the Indians Panatahuas and the spanish conquistadors’ war as a resource
of personal identification. Amarilis mentions in his Epístola that his two grandfathers
belonged to the heroes’ group that conquered Peru, who inhabited the city of Huanuco,
who beat the Indians Panatahuas and remained loyal to the king as they confront the
spanish conquistadors rebels.
