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.
