Tal vez sorprenda que la imagen más difundida del siglo XX no represente a una estrella de rock, o de Hollywood y mucho menos un hombre de negocios o un deportista de éxito. Tampoco a un poeta, un pintor, o un científico. Ernesto Che Guevara no dirigió el destino de una potencia mundial y su imagen no fue resultado de una campaña mediática en sentido estricto, aunque podría decirse que ella es en sí misma una campaña con un mensaje reconocible. El Che es el hombre rebelde por excelencia pero él mismo fue ministro y banquero y dirigió juicios sumarísimos y ejecuciones. También fue un icono del voluntarismo, expresión máxima (o mínima, según quiera verse) de la acción revolucionaria y eje de la construcción de una sociedad nueva

Escribi&#243; una Cr&#243;nica del Per&#250; en tres partes, de las que solo la primera se public&#243; en vida de su autor, quedando in&#233;ditas las otras dos hasta los siglos XIX y XX. En Cartagena de Indias particip&#243; en expediciones, fundaciones, encomiendas gubernamentales y otros cargos, aunque su obra principal es la cr&#243;nica y el ambicioso proyecto de una historia del Per&#250;. Hacia 1548 Cieza se estableci&#243; en la Ciudad de los Reyes (actual Lima) y all&#237; empez&#243; a escribir sus cr&#243;nicas del Nuevo Mundo. Durante los dos a&#241;os siguientes recorri&#243; el Per&#250; y compil&#243; cuantiosa informaci&#243;n para su obra. Regres&#243; a Espa&#241;a en 1551 y se cas&#243; en Sevilla con una mujer llamada Isabel L&#243;pez. En esta ciudad public&#243; en 1553 la Primera parte de la cr&#243;nica del Per&#250;. Muri&#243; al a&#241;o siguiente dejando una obra in&#233;dita que fue publicada en 1871, bajo el t&#237;tulo de Segunda parte de la cr&#243;nica del Per&#250;, que trata del se&#241;or&#237;o de los incas yupangueis y de sus grandes hechos y gobernaci&#243;n.
