Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Annotated translation into Spanish of a sixteenth century manuscript writen in quichi, a Mayan language, just after the conquest, and later copied, and thus preserved, by a Dominican friar. This "commonal book" records a centuries old and rich oral tradition of myths and legends of the peoples of the Mayan jungle. It tells about the origin of the world, its things and animals, and about the final successful creation of man from corn, through the adventures of Hunapz and Ixbalanqui, the boy-gods.

Synopsis:

Con la gracia y la sabiduria de las fabulas clasicas, el Popol Vuh es el mas precioso legado, mitico y teogonico, de la antiguedad americana. La primera parte relata el origen del mundo y la creacion del hombre; la segunda parte, las hazanas de los heroes miticos Hunahpu e Ixbalanque: ambas testimonian el grado de adelanto y calidad espiritual de la cultura que origino la obra.
