ALEJANDRA SUAREZ, Marcela. The Didacticism in Landívar: Classical Tradition, Cultural Identity, and Jesuitic Ideology in the Rusticatio Mexicana. Nova tellus [online]. 2012, vol.30, n.2, pp.187-204. ISSN 0185-3058.

Within the framework of the Neo-Latin literature, didactic poetry has had a broad development on the basis of the virgilian model. But the "popularity of the genre" is due to the interest aroused among the Jesuits of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Such is the case of Landívar, Rusticatio Mexicana's author. The analysis of the generic conventions shows that the didacticism of Landívar nourishes itself from the Classical tradition and reveals a clear ideological character and identity.

Keywords : Rafael Landívar; Classical tradition; cultural identity; Jesuitic ideology.
