abstract

Ruy Díaz de Guzmán marked a milestone in the colonial history of the Río de la Plata, being the first in this region of America to narrate with historical and evocative sense the events that occurred in the so-called Giant Province of the Indies. In the work Annals of Discovery, Population and Conquest of the Río de la Plata, one can observe the idealisation of the conqueror archetype, permanently extolling the ‘heroic’ work of the Spanish in the process of conquest, as opposed to the indigenous, always presented as unruly and treacherous. The article seeks to address the way in which Ruy Díaz de Guzmán presents the conquest of the Río de la Plata through the analysis of the discourse exhibited in the aforementioned work.
