Book Review Creole Subjects in the Colonial Americas: Empires, Texts, Identities Edited by ralph bauer and josé antonio mazzotti Chapel Hill: Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture, University of North Carolina Press, 2009 503 pp. In an introduction and seventeen critical essays, Creole Subjects in the Colonial Americas: Empires, Texts, Identities provides examples of the emergence, perception, and articulation of Creole identity and consciousness across the Americas. The historical and cultural engagement with the construction of Creole subjectivity is taken up in this book in a manner that distinguishes itself by its comparative approach to literary articulations of Creole subjectivity and agency across several time periods. The result is a thorough examination of Creole discourse on cultural and social difference from an array of colonial and postindependence authors representing different ideological contexts and cultural spaces such as Lima, Mexico City, Cuzco, the Chesapeake, and peripheral regions of colonial Brazil and Peru. Authors highlighted include a mix rarely seen together, including Juana Inés de la Cruz, Francis Drake, Pedro Peralta Barnuevo, Anne Bradstreet, William Byrd II, Lucas Fernández de Piedrahita, Mary Rowlandson, Hannah Swarton, Philip Sidney, Guaman Poma de Ayala, Bento Teixeira, Ambrósio Fernandes Brandão, Manuel Beckman,
