Resumo

MORONG REYES, Germán. THE MELANCHOLY AND FEARFUL INDIAN: REPRESENTATIONS OF OTHERNESS IN TWO TEXTS ONINDIANS IN COLONIAL PERÚ SIGLOS XVI-XVII. Diálogo Andino [online]. 2014, n.45, pp.27-38. ISSN 0719-2681.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0719-26812014000300004.

A not insignificant number of colonial manuscripts or "textos de indias" grant the american indian a social complexión and/or nature linked to melancholy humor. The image of the melancholy indian, shy and fearful, allowed colonizers to legitimize their conquest based on an alleged lack of will and virility on the part of the Indians, through which the declared incapacity to govern themselves and a lackpolitical rationality were consequently understood. I'm interested in asserting here, based on the analysis of two colonial texts - "Gobierno del Perú" by Juan de Matienzo (1567) and "Historia General del Perú" by Fray Martín de Murúa (1613) - that melancholy worked as retaining strategic category a through which hispanics justified their exercise of power and granted legal legitimacy to their status as rational men in the art of government.

Palavras-chave : Texts on indians; melancholy humor; indians; colonial government.
