EN SAVOIR PLUS Résumé

The stories inFeathered Serpent, Dark Heart of Sky trace the history of the world from its beginnings in the dreams of the dual god, Ometeotl, to the arrival of the Spanish conquistadors in Mexico and the fall of the great city Tenochtitlan. In the course of that history we learn about the Creator Twins - Feathered Serpent and Dark Heart of Sky - and how they built the world on a leviathan's back; of the shape-shiftingnahualli; and thealuxes, elfish beings known to help out the occasional wanderer. And finally, we read Aztec tales about the arrival of the blonde strangers from across the sea, the strangers who seek to upend the rule of Motecuhzoma and destroy the very stories we are reading.

David Bowles stitches together the fragmented mythology of pre-Colombian Mexico into an exciting, unified narrative in the tradition of William Buck'sRamayana, Robert Fagles'sIliad, and Neil Gaiman'sNorse Myths. Readers of Norse and Greek mythologies will delight in this rich retelling of stories less explored.

Legends and myths capturedDavid Bowles's imagination as a young Latino reader; he was fascinated with epics like theIliad and theOdyssey. Despite growing up on the United States/Mexico border, he had never read a single Aztec or Mayan myth until he was in college. This experience inspired him to reconnect with that forgotten past. Several of his previous books have incorporated themes from ancient Mexican myths.
