Abstract
Juan Latino’s second volume of poetry, published in 1576 in Granada, deals with the dynastic transfers of the royal bodies of Philip II’s family from tombs dispersed over the country to the palace-monastery El Escorial. In this essay, I explore the different functions of Latino's use of prosopopoeia, a rhetorical figure of speech that gives a face to an abstract or absent entity, in the appearances of Charles V and Mother Granada. I show how the two visions and speeches of these personifications are used to shape the cultural memory and identity of the city.
El segundo volumen de poesía de Juan Latino, publicado en 1576 en Granada, trata de las traslaciones reales de los cuerpos de miembros difuntos de la familia de Felipe II, después de que éste había decidido trasladarlos desde varios sitios hacia San Lorenzo de El Escorial. En este artículo se estudian las diferentes funciones de la figura prosopopoeia que Latino utiliza en varias ocasiones, tal como las apariencias de Carlos I y Madre Granada. Esta figura retórica atribuye características humanas a entidades abstractas o ausentes. Las visiones y discursos de las dos personificaciones crean la memoria e identidad culturales de Granada.
