Abstract:

"Ancient American Poets presents a survey of indigenous poetry that focuses on three Amerindian poets. Included are "The Flower Songs of Nezahualcoyotl" (Aztec), "The Songs of Dzitbalche" (Yucatec Maya), and "The Sacred Hymns of Pachacuti" (Inca), followed by a biography and commentary on the poets' lives and times. Each poem is presented in its original language and in translation. By reading this poetry and exploring the lives of the three poets, one can visualize the indigenous world in the century before the Spanish conquest and gain a view of pre-Hispanic history radically different from its usual presentation." "The author's interest in issues affecting indigenous people stems from his core belief that the future of the Americas is intimately tied to their indigenous past and furthermore that there are valuable lessons to be learned from these civilizations. John Curl's study of indigenous poets' works has changed the way he sees the world; this book has grown out of his desire to share that vision with others."--BOOK JACKET.
