Popol Wuh: Ancient Stories of the Quiche Indians of Guatemala

Albertina Saravia E.

The Popol Wuh is regarded all over as one of the most important works in the literature of the Americas, because it contains fragments of cosmogony, religion, mythology, as well as the traditions relating to the migrations and the history of the pre-Columbian world. What makes this version of the Popol Wuh so unique is the author’s careful selection from drawings of the Mayan Codices. The pages of this book resemble those of the Mayan Codices: the Tro-Cotesianus, the Peresianus, and the Dresdensis.
