Item description for La Araucana II by Alonso de Ercilla y Zúñiga...

La experiencia americana de Ercilla le inspir su poema pico La Araucana, escrito en octavas reales y dividido en tres partes (1569, 1578 y 1589). Es uno de los libros salvados en el captulo VI del Quijote y el primer texto potico europeo en el que Amrica es un tema literario. Ercilla relata las cruentas luchas sostenidas en Chile entre araucanos y espaoles, y describe el lugar y las costumbres de los indgenas. La narracin impresiona por la precisa descripcin de paisajes y batallas, y los certeros retratos de los jefes araucanos. Se intercalan digresiones, segn un procedimiento habitual en la lrica culta: relato de las batallas de Lepanto y San Quintn, descripcin de ciudades famosas, la leyenda de Dido o una justificacin poltica de las pretensiones de Felipe II a la corona portuguesa. Aunque Ercilla afirma ser testigo de las escenas que cuenta, el relato histrico muestra con frecuencia la influencia de las lecturas picas del autor, con formacin literaria. La obra tiene varios protagonistas, Lautaro y Caupolicn entre los indgenas araucanos, y Pedro de Valdivia, Garca Hurtado de Mendoza, Pedro de Villagra o el propio Ercilla por el lado espaol. Sin embargo, se da ms relieve individual y heroico a los primeros, y se destacan sus virtudes por encima de sus adversarios.
