Abstract: To view the subject of this thesis in context, one must consider the Indian theme throughout Hispanic literature. This theme existed to some extent in indigenous writings before the Spaniards cane to Latin America. The more advanced Indian civilizations located in Yucatan, Guatamala, Honduras, Bolivia, Ecuador, and Peru, produced a written literature which has been partially preserved to this day.1 Included in these indigenous writings are such works as the Fopol Vuh and the Rabinal Achí of the Maya Indians of Guatamala. Remnants of the náhuatl and the quecha poetry also survived the destruction of the Spanish conquest.
