Abstract

This work examines the construction of an etiology or fable of origins by Silvestre de Balboa in Espejo de paciencia (1608). From the use of classical mythology, Balboa assigns a new symbolic value to Cuban nature that allows us to see the landscape based on an insular autochthonous feeling, marking the difference with the European landscape.
