abstract

This essay confronts the terms Conquista and Encuentro, which have been both used to refer to Mexican Conquista by Spanish soldiers in the early 16th century. The main reference for the discussion is Bernal Díaz del Castillo’s Historia verdadera de la conquista de la Nueva España (1632) and the way the interpretation of historical circumstances were readapted to meet different interests. The work also faces the evolution of this two concepts that involve ideological and political positions through five centuries of Mexican and foreign literature, cinema, music and new ways of fiction creativity.
