Peralta Barnuevo and the discourse of loyalty: a critical edition of four selected texts
This critical edition publishes for the first time, four works by Peralta. Written in the first quarter of the eighteenth century, the titles include IMAGEN POLITICA DEL GOBIERNO DEL EXCMO: SENOR D. DIEGO LADRON DE GUEVARA (1714): ORACION AL CLAUSTRO DE LA REAL UNIVERSIDAD (1715); EL TEMPLO DE LA FAMA VINDICADO (1720); & DIALAGO POILTICO: LA VERDAD Y LA JUSTICIA (1724). The principal goal of this volume is to provide an introduction to the complexity of Peralta's literary works, which reveal his defense of monarchial issues & his use of written discourse of loyalty to control, order & influence public opinion. "This edition will definitely enrich the historic & literary treasure from an era little explored in Latin America... The detailed & demanding verification of the texts enables us to correct any dating errors repeated by critics of Peralta y Barnuevo. Thanks to (Williams) efforts we now know the full value & reach of these essays about the intellectual activities of Spaniards in colonial Latin America."--Enrique Ballon Aguirre, Department of Foreign Languages, Arizona State University.
