Edited by John Bierhorst
The University of Arizona Press
In this companion volume to History and Mythology of the Aztecs, John Bierhorst provides specialists with a transcription of the Nahuatl text, keyed to the translation, and a linguistic apparatus to help elucidate it. The glossary offers definitions for all unusual usages in the codex, as well as careful treatment of many of the most common (and most semantically flexible) verbs, adverbs, and particles. Detailed discussions of selected features appear in the grammatical notes that complete the work.

"It strikes a reasonable compromise between precision and ease of reading." --Latin American Indian Literatures
JOHN BIERHORST became interested in Native American cultures in the early 1960s, which led him to create many volumes of translated tales, retellings, and studies that have set an academic standard for more than four decades.
