Lima Fundada by Pedro de Peralta Barnuevo: A Critical Edition recounts the founding of Peru's capital city by Fernando Pizarro, a hero that gives shape to a conflicted discourse about colonization and empire. Lima fundada is implicitly about criollo identity, history, and power in the face of a hierarchical system that gives preference to the Peninsular-born. The text is a complex history of the conquest in which a cast of nations, empires, rulers and peoples join to create Peralta's vision of Peru, while celebrating creoles as the true inheritors of the city's heroic founding.
