The article analizes some literary resources of the epic poems on the Arauco War in the 16th century, which used names and passages from the ancient Greek and Roman world. The analysis proposes an approach of historical interpretation, which understands the use ofsuch resources as an exercise of reception of the classical tradition by the poets, to amplify the scope oftheir argument and to represent the war with a transcendent and universal condition.
