VALERO JUAN, EVA Mª. BY WAY OF SEA, THE JOURNEY TOWARDS ALONSO DE ERCILLA'S IDEAL. Atenea (Concepc.) [online]. 2008, n.498, pp.11-31. ISSN 0718-0462.

This article engages in the debate on La Araucana with an analysis of the experience of travel and the metaphor of life as navigation, both conceived as significant axis of the book. The poetization of Ercilla’s journey to America is proposed as an irradiating centre of suggestive signi?cances in La Araucana. As a result La Araucana is tied to the ideological tradition relating to the journey that authors of Golden Age literature developed abundantly from the times of the Conquest with the purpose of establishing a connection between La Araucana and the Christian humanism tradition and paci?st Erasmism, and their development in the moralist poetry of the time. The poet ?ltered this ideological context taking from it all that interested him in order to present his particular view of the Conquest; a vision that establishes him as the founder of a critical American discourse in poetry written in Castilian.

Palabras clave : Alonso de Ercilla; La Araucana; journey; Christian humanism.
