The Miraculous Lie: Lope De Aguirre and the Search for El Dorado in the Latin American Historical Novel (Paperback)

£27.95
Usually despatched within 2 weeks.

Synopsis

A fascinating study of five twentieth-century Latin American novels that focus on one particular search for El Dorado: the infamous 1559 expedition, headed by Pedro Ursua and the first legendary colonial rebel against the crown, Lope de Aguirre. Author Bart Lewis approaches these five works as both representations of Latin American literature during the mid to late twentieth-century and as re-examinations of the notorious figure of Lope de Aguirre.

Bart L. Lewis is an Associate Professor of Modern Languages at the University of Texas-Arlington. His more than than thirty articles on Latin American literature have appeared in such journals as Hispanic Review, Hispan-fila, Hispanic Journal, Revista Interamericana de Bibliografia, Revista Iberoamericana, Hispania, Romance Notes, and Chasqui. In 1997 he was named the Carnegie Foundation Arkansas Professor of the Year.
