In 2001 the Royal Library in Copenhagen launched a digital facsimile on the Internet of the unique manuscript Nuevá corónica from 1616 by the ethnic Andean Felipe Guaman Poma. These new technical studies supplement the facsimile with a description and analysis of the manuscript's features, and posits that the Copenhagen manuscript was the work of a single author, writing and drawing in his own hand.

In the midst of native people's discontent following Spanish conquest, a native Andean born after the fall of the Incas took up the pen to protest Spanish rule. Felipe Guaman Poma de Ayala wrote his Nueva corónica y buen gobierno to inform Philip III of Spain about the evils of colonialism and the need for governmental and societal reform. By examining Guaman Poma's verbal and visual engagement with the institutions of Western art and culture, Rolena Adorno shows how he performed a comprehensive critique of the colonialist discourse of religion, political theory, and history. She argues that Guaman Poma's work chronicles the emergence of a uniquely Latin American voice, characterized by the articulation of literary art and politics. Following the initial appearance of Guaman Poma: Writing and Resistance in Colonial Peru, the 1990s witnessed the creation of a range of new studies that underscore the key role of the Nueva corónica y buen gobierno in facilitating our understanding of the Andean and Spanish colonial pasts. At the same time, the documentary record testifying to Guaman Poma's life and work has expanded dramatically, thanks to the publication of long-known but previously inaccessible drawings and documents. In a new, lengthy introduction to this second edition, Adorno shows how recent scholarship from a variety of disciplinary perspectives sheds new light on Guaman Poma and his work, and she offers an important new assessment of his biography in relation to the creation of the Nueva corónica y buen gobierno.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2002 im Fachbereich Romanistik - Lateinamerikanische Sprachen, Literatur, Landeskunde, Note: 1,0, Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg (Romanisches Seminar), Veranstaltung: Einführung in die lateinamerikanische und spanische Literaturwissenschaft, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: „Es un decir que poco se sabe de Guaman Poma“1. Bis auf wenige zeitgenössische Quellenverweise, beruht fast all das verfügbare Wissen über Felipe Guaman Poma de Ayala auf seinem Werk „Nueva crónica y buen gobierno“ selbst. In vorliegender Arbeit soll nun versucht werden, das Bild, das der Autor von sich selbst entwirft, zu untersuchen und es mit den nachträglich hinzugefügten Änderungen am Werk in Beziehung zu setzen. Das Kapitel des „Camina el Autor“ soll hierbei als Beispiel gelten, da es in seiner Eigenschaft als nachträglich hinzugefügtes Kapitel gleichzeitig repräsentativ ist für die finalen Änderungen am Text, sowie auch für die Selbstdarstellung des Autors. Darauf aufbauend soll im folgenden Kapitel die vielgestellte Frage nach der Person des Autors und ihrer Intention kritisch betrachtet werden, um darzulegen inwiefern so eine Bestimmung möglich und sinnvoll ist. Als Primärtext wurde die 1987 erschienene Auflage der „Nueva crónica y buen gobierno“, herausgegeben von John V. Murra, Rolena Adorno und Jorge L. Urioste, verwendet2. Dabei wurden Orthographie und Interpunktion in den verwendeten Textstellen daraus übernommen. 1 Carillo Espejo, Francisco: Cronistas Indios y Mestizos II, Guaman Poma de Ayala, in: Enciclopedia historica de la Literatura Peruana, Bd. 7, Editorial Horizonte, Lima: 1992: S. 11. 2 Murra, John V.; Rolena Adorno; Jorge L.

Published on the occasion of the opening of the full digital edition of the autograph manuscript of Felipe Guaman Poma de Ayala's Nueva corónica y buen gobierno (1615) on the website of the Royal Libary, Copenhagen, this new book by one of the world's most prominent Guaman Poma-scholars contains a survey (in English and in Spanish) of recent research. Guaman Poma dedicated his Chronicle to Philip III, King of Spain, but it has been preserved since the 18th century in the Royal Library, Copenhagen. 'Rediscovered' by modern scholarship in 1908, it was included in UNESCO's 'Memory of the World' list in 1999. Written and illustrated by a Christianised native Andean of Southern Peru, several decades after the Spanish conquest, the Nueva corónica is a complex and unique mixture of historiography and utopianism. On one hand, it contains an entirely original framework for Andean historical self-understanding, as an alternative to the colonial viewpoint. On the other hand, based upon vivid written and graphic descriptions of Andean daily life and sufferings under colonial rule, Guaman Poma formulates far-reaching proposals for reform aimed at turning the chaotic viceroyalty into a dynamic self-governed kingdom within the Spanish empire. Guaman Poma envisioned this new order as Christian, but organised in accordance with Andean economic, social, and cultural tradition.

One of the most fascinating books on pre-Columbian and early colonial Peru was written by a Peruvian Indian named Felipe Guaman Poma de Ayala. This book, The First New Chronicle and Good Government, covers pre-Inca times, various aspects of Inca culture, the Spanish conquest, and colonial times up to around 1615 when the manuscript was finished. Now housed in the Royal Library, Copenhagen, Denmark, and viewable online at, the original manuscript has 1,189 pages accompanied by 398 full-page drawings that constitute the most accurate graphic depiction of Inca and colonial Peruvian material culture ever done. Working from the original manuscript and consulting with fellow Quechua- and Spanish-language experts, Roland Hamilton here provides the most complete and authoritative English translation of approximately the first third of The First New Chronicle and Good Government. The sections included in this volume (pages 1–369 of the manuscript) cover the history of Peru from the earliest times and the lives of each of the Inca rulers and their wives, as well as a wealth of information about ordinances, age grades, the calendar, idols, sorcerers, burials, punishments, jails, songs, palaces, roads, storage houses, and government officials. One hundred forty-six of Guaman Poma's detailed illustrations amplify the text.

Honored by UNESCO’s Memory of the World designation, Felipe Guaman Poma de Ayala’s Nueva corónica y buen gobierno (1615) rewrites Andean history in accordance with the author’s goals of reforming Spanish colonial rule in the continent-spanning viceroyalty of Peru. Housed at the Royal Library of Denmark since the 1660s, brought to international attention in 1908, and first published in facsimile in 1936, the autograph manuscript has been the topic of research in Andean ethnology and related disciplines for several decades. Now, on the eve of the 400th anniversary of Guaman Poma’s composition of the Nueva corónica, a renowned group of international scholars has focused fresh attention on the work, its author, and its times. Accomplished Andeanists such as R. Tom Zuidema, Frank Salomon, Jan Szeminski, and Regina Harrison are joined by other notable and younger scholars to explore Andean institutions and ecology, Inca governance, Spanish conquest-era history, the transformations of native and European sources in Guaman Poma’s hand, and his multilingual artistic dexterity. The relationship of the manuscript to Fray Martín de Murúa’s chronicles and a critical analysis of claims about the Nueva corónica’s authorship round out the volume.

"Hidden Messages: Representation and Resistance in Andean Colonial Drama is a study that takes into account Andean cultural diversity in four works of Peruvian theater written in Quechua and Spanish. In examining these plays, Chang-Rodriguez considers the density of the different traditions that have marked these works; the complexity and variability of their messages in relation to their heterogeneous spectators, readers, and listeners; and how the colonial playwright reworked the original European models. With a critical eye, the author analyzes texts and images of the period to uncover hidden messages resulting from the uniqueness of colonial situations and the interplay of dissimilar traditions."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
