I, Hernan Cortes: The (Second) Trial of Residency is a literary analysis of the most important documents in the Hernan Cortes trial of residency (juicio de residencia) using some proposed literary tools created for that purpose and the original documents in the Archivo General de Indias in Seville as well as a great variety of books on Hernan Cortes. Francisco Manzo-Robledo reveals how Hernan Cortes re-creates himself, from being the first illegal immigrant in the continent to becoming, for a short time, the highest authority in New Spain before falling into a legal limbo in the Council of Indies. This book is useful in any course dealing with Spanish colonial history or literature.
