Abstract:

This collection brings together in English translation some of the most outstanding pre-Columbian Nahuatl texts. Included are poems from the Texcoco poetry festivals, Aztec texts about the Spanish conquest of Mexico, and selections from Sahagún's ethnographic record of sacred songs to the gods. An appendix traces the poetic tradition into the present with selections from contemporary Otomi, Lacondon, and Huichol material. The collection takes the reader beyond the image of Tenochititlan as a monolithic Aztec society to give a sense of the richness and diversity of cultures in sixteenth-century Mexico. In these poems we discover many voices in Aztlán, all of them full of wonder at the mysteries of the world--the heart, the rain sweeping down from the mountains to nourish the corn, the sun, and the conflict between humans and nature.--Cover.
