This book brings together the classes of Latin American colonial literature dictated by the author in the Faculty of Philosophy and Letters of the National University of Tucuman. The varied network that forms the colonial discourses shows how the Latin American cultural identity is born in the very violence of the conquest. Some of the authors studied are Juana Ines de la Cruz, the Inca Garcilaso de la Vega, Guaman Poma, Juana de Espinosa Medrano, known as the Lunarejo, Alonso Carrio de la Vandera and his "Lazarillo de ciegos caminantes"
