Book Description

1 May 1999 Texas Pan American Series
"This translation of Xicotencatl makes available to English-speaking readers a key text in the nineteenth-century history of Spanish American literature. . . . I am delighted that someone has seen fit to rescue this marvelous story of good and evil, with its [still] pertinent discussion of political and personal morality." --Nancy Vogeley, Professor of Spanish, University of San Francisco As Spain's New World colonies fought for their independence in the early nineteenth century, an anonymous author looked back on the earlier struggle of native Americans against the Spanish conquistadores and penned this novel, Xicotencatl. Writing from a decidedly anti-Spanish perspective, the author describes the historical events that led to the march on Tenochtitlan and eventual conquest of the Aztec empire in 1519 by Hernan Cortes and his Indian allies, the Tlaxcalans. Xicotencatl stands out as a beautiful exposition of an idealized New World about to undergo the tremendous changes wrought by the Spanish Conquest. It was published in Philadelphia in 1826. In his introduction to this first English translation, Guillermo I. Castillo-Feliu discusses why the novel was published outside Latin America, its probable author, and his attitudes toward his Spanish and Indian characters, his debt to Spanish literature and culture, and the parallels that he draws between past and present struggles against Spanish domination in the Americas.
