    Book details


This edited volume offers new perspectives from leading scholars on the important work of Inca Garcilaso de la Vega (1539-1616), one of the first Latin American writers to present an intellectual analysis of pre-Columbian history and culture and the ensuing colonial period. To the contributors, Inca Garcilaso's Royal Commentaries of the Incas presented an early counter-hegemonic discourse and a reframing of the history of native non-alphabetic cultures that undermined the colonial rhetoric of his time and the geopolitical divisions it purported. Through his research in both Andean and Renaissance archives, Inca Garcilaso sought to connect these divergent cultures into one world.This collection offers five classical studies of Royal Commentaries previously unavailable in English, along with seven new essays that cover topics including Andean memory, historiography, translation, philosophy, trauma, and ethnic identity. This cross-disciplinary volume will be of interest to students and scholars of Latin American history, culture, comparative literature, subaltern studies, and works in translation.

These essays bring Garcilaso into the modern world as still a relevant and bold writer.North of Oxford"An indispensable tool for scholars across disciplines, especially those interested in Latin American and indigenous pasts. It is also strongly recommended reading for early modern researchers focused on other languages, for theymay not be familiar with Inca Garcilaso an author that should definitely be part of their canon.Gustavo Verdesio, University of Michigan"An excellent collection of essays on one of the first Latin American writers to elaborate a sophisticated reflection on the pre-Columbian past and the colonial experience in dialogue with Europe s Renaissance and classical cultural traditions. Each essay brings a new dimension to Garcilaso s texts, the importance and complexity of which are evident.Luis Fernando Restrepo, University of Arkansas""These essays bring Garcilaso into the modern world as still a relevant and bold writer."--North of Oxford"An indispensable tool for scholars across disciplines, especially those interested in Latin American and indigenous pasts.
