Long before Europeans came to America, the Aztecs were flourishing, creating a unique culture based on myth and a love of language. To the Aztecs, an elegant turn of phrase was like a precious stone. This work is an anthology of the best of Aztec literature, including myths and narratives, poems and proverbs. These selections depict the reality of this ancient people: their everyday life, and their truly unique view of the world.
