Historia de la conquista de México by Francisco López de Gómara

En el contexto de los relatos históricos de la conquista de América, la obra de Francisco López de Gómara (1512-1575?) -sacerdote egresado de la universidad de Alcalá- representa una pieza excepcional, por recuperar la información de primera mano que le ofreció el mismísimo Hernán Cortés, de quien fuera capellán privado, y otros personajes significativos, como Gonzalo de Tapia y Gonzalo de Umbría. Aparecida por primera vez en Zaragoza en 1552, pronto fue traducida al francés, el italiano y el náhuatl.
Gracias a los defectos más sobresalientes de su factura (el deseo de magnificar la figura de Cortés y numerosos errores históricos) la Historia de la conquista de México nos ayuda a entender las frecuentes distorsiones y maniqueísmos en que incurre la historia.
Hoy día le dan vigencia su estilo conciso y agradable y un tono narrativo que, con rapidez y gracia, atrae al lector desde las primeras páginas.
