Abstract:

"The Rabbit on the Face of the Moon is a collection of articles on mythology in the Mesoamerican tradition by Alfredo Lopez Austin, one of the foremost scholars of ancient Mesoamerican thought. Their span is diverse: myths and names, eclipses, stars, left and right, Mexica origins, Aztec incantations, animals, and the incorporation of Christian elements into the living mythologies of Mexico. The title essay relates the Mesoamerican myth explaining why there is a rabbit on the moon's face to a Buddhist image and suggests the importance of the profound mythical concepts presented by each image." "The eighteen pieces in this volume are unified by their basis in Mesoamerican tradition and provide a fascinating look into a system of millennia-old legends and beliefs."--Jacket.
