Men of maize by Miguel Angel Asturias( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in Spanish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Miguel Ángel Asturias recreó la tradición prehispánica guatemalteca. La memoria ancestral, desconocida, quedó, gracias a su obra, incorporada a la aventura artística y cedió el papel de protagonistas de la ficción a los desheredados de la historia. Las antiguas historias del Quiché relatan que, en el alba del mundo, los dioses fracasaron varias veces en el empeño de crear al hombre, hasta que dieron con la sustancia adecuada para formar a la criatura definitiva: el maíz. Desde el título mismo, esta obra proclama su filiación con los indios de Guatemala, pero los hombre de maíz que pueblan sus páginas son los descendientes de aquellos que sobrevivieron a la Conquista, atravesaron diversas catástrofes de la historia guatemalteca y alcanzaron la época en la que Asturias los recreó en la primera mitad del siglo XX."--P. [4] of cover
The mirror of Lida Sal : tales based on Mayan myths and Guatemalan legends by Miguel Angel Asturias( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in Spanish and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First English-language edition of El espejo de Lida Sal (see HLAS 30:3268), in which the Nobel laureate melds Mayan and Guatemalan myth and folklore in 10 stories whose hallucinatory prose challenges the reader. 'Everything unfolds in a land of natural dreamscapes ... The imagination reels.' Although lacking a table of contents and translator's note, the superb translation recommends the work for classroom use"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58
