    • Abstract:
      The discovery of the Indies, wrote Francisco López de Gómara in 1552, was'the greatest event since the creation of the world, excepting the Incarnation and Death of Him who created it.'Five centuries have not diminished either the overwhelming importance or the strangeness of the early encounter between Europeans and American peoples. This collection of essays, encompassing history, literary criticism, art history, and anthropology, offers a fresh and innovative approach to the momentous encounter.
