Resumen

HUIDOBRO SALAZAR, María Gabriela. The classical tradition in las guerras de Chile. Atenea (Concepc.) [online]. 2011, n.503, pp. 133-145. ISSN 0718-0462.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-04622011000100007.

Las guerras de Chile is an epic poem that has been studied -in general- only as an his-torical testimony of the Arauco War. Nevertheless, due to its being influenced by the classical tradition, this poem also has a literary and cultural value which has not been analyzed. The aim of this paper is to read a passage of the poem focusing on some topics of the epic tradition in order to consider these verses not only as a testimony of historical facts, but also to value the cultural perspective in which those facts are represented.

Palabras clave : Las guerras de Chile; epic poetry; classical tradition; epic topics.
