Anything by Dennis Tedlock is going to create excitement, as well it should from someone of his skill and erudition, but I would take his latest offering with a grain of salt. In this wide-ranging work Doctor Tedlock takes on, well, 2000 Years of Mayan Literature, examining various ancient Mayan writings and exploring their meanings, symbolism, style and intended audience, among other factors.

A truly unprecedented gathering and translation of written Mayan texts. Tedlock is making visible, for the first time, a Mayan literature in comprehensible, meaningful form.
