dc.description.abstractIn this paper I will attempt to treat the Black Legend by first discussing the facts of the historical background, i.e. the life of Phillip II, the purpose of the Inquisition, and the actions of the Spaniards in the New World. Then I will discuss the manifestations of this anti-Spanish trend in world literature of the period. Since this topic is of a very subjective nature, open to different interpretations, very few, if any, of the sources I have used, have been impartial. Therefore, my task has been to achieve a balance between the two extremes. If at times a bias does appear, it is because I, too, have been influenced by the Black Legend and the White Legend--the Spanish answer to the accusations against their country.en_US
