Antología de la literatura burlesca del Siglo de Oro. Burla y sátira en los virreinatos de Indias. Una antología provisionalArnulfo Herrera, Carlos F. Cananillas, Fernando Rodríguez y Martina Vinatea (eds.)
Within the framework of the Anthology of Burlesque Literature of the Golden Age, undertaken from the project Identidades y alteridades. La burla como diversión y arma social en la literatura y cultura del Siglo de Oro (FFI2017-82532-P, MICINN / AEI / FEDER, UE), this volume is dedicated to the materials intended as indianos. This book offers some outstanding compositions and authors. It is far from being exhaustive. It does not even draw a basic systematic panorama, but it does show some representative texts in the two great viceroyalties. For the Peruvian, the poetry of Caviedes and the Ciego de la Merced and the prose texts extracted from chronicles of the Indies constitute a limited but significant example. For New Spain, a version of the famous Quevedian eschatological pamphlet dedicated to the last eye is added to the poetic anthology, a manifestation of the validity of a model like Don Francisco’s, very perceptible also in a poet like Caviedes.
