La conquista del Río de la Plata en el poema Romance Indiano, de Luis de Miranda de Villafañe

Miryam Celeste Buzó Silva    Universidad Nacional de Asunción, Paraguay    



Luis de Miranda was part of the expedition of Don Pedro de Mendoza and wrote Romance Indiano, a composition in verse, considered as the first literary work of the Río de la Plata, that articulates a narrative about everything that happened during the conquest of this area of America. This work deals with desolation, hunger, and other issues with a political discourse of a foundational nature, at a historical moment characterised by the need to make decisions in the face of the vicissitudes suffered by the conquerors of the first Adelantado’s army. The richness of the text lies in its literary and political analysis, because the poem is not only characterised by the style used, which allows to observe the resources and values of the 16th century, but it also presents a political tinge, since its reading offers the vision of the conqueror in the process of settlement and conquest of the River Plate territory.
